It seems that these days we are seeing more news stories featuring defective medical devices. For example, metal hip implants and transvaginal mesh have seriously injured many people in Texas and nationwide. It is important that those injured by defective medical devises pursue the compensation they need through defective medical device litigation.
With regards to defective medical devises, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration holds the manufacturer of the devise largely responsible for testing the devise to ensure it is safe. Unfortunately, time is money, and some manufacturers will try to take shortcuts in the safety testing process in order to get their product into the hands of consumers more quickly. Moreover, sometimes the design of the product is unsafe due to poor research.
At the law firm of Clark Love & Hutson, GP, we focus our efforts on showing that the manufacturer of the defective medical devise had a defective design, was improperly manufactured or was not sufficiently tested. We are not afraid to aggressively fight for our clients, who have suffered deep and lasting pain. Whether it is a metal hip implant, vaginal mesh or some other defective medical device, we know that our clients are depending on us to assist them as they pursue a lawsuit that will help them recover for the financial and emotional harms they suffered.
When a person needs a new hip or is having a medical device surgically placed in them, they may be afraid that something bad could happen during the surgical procedure. What they may not anticipate, however, is that the device itself could cause harm. When this happens, victims of defective medical devices will want to take the steps necessary to hold the appropriate parties accountable.
