Defective Medical Devices
Medical Devices that are properly designed, tested and built can be miraculous and lifesaving. In such a competitive marketplace, manufacturers are under constant pressure to get products out the door quickly – often, too quickly. All too often, this leads to cut corners or more focus put on marketing and profits than on safety.
When the people who rely on these devices are harmed — such as by defective hips and knees, bad heart valves, defibrillators and other devices we have all read about in the headlines — the resulting injuries can be catastrophic.

Current Medical Device Cases
Currently, our firm handles two of the most important medical device matters that affect patients across the nation:
- DePuy hip replacements: The ASR™ XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement system is especially prone to failure (approximately one in every eight fail within five years). This gives rise to infection, broken bones, chronic pain and other side effects. The Pinnacle hip system has also done great damage to many people due to its metal-on-metal design.
- Transvaginal mesh injuries: Many women have suffered severe injury from surgical mesh implanted to repair pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence, which can occur after childbirth. Complications include exposure of the mesh, severe pain, infection and painful intercourse. Follow-up surgery may be required, and permanent injury or disability may occur.
- Defective IVC filters: These filters are designed to catch blood clots, but can end up puncturing vital bodily structures instead.
