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 to market quickly – often, too quickly. Unfortunately, this can lead to some critical mistakes – like cutting corners or putting more focus on marketing and profits instead of safety..
In today’s society, millions of people rely on medical devices in order to maintain some sense of physical normalcy. Sadly, many receive those devices before they’ve been properly vetted to ensure safety. Indeed, recent headlines have shown defects in critical medical devices, as well as cosmetic devices. They include:
- Hip implants
- Knee replacements
- Heart valves
- Breast implants
When the people who rely on these devices are harmed, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic.

Current Medical Device Cases
Currently, our firm handles some of the most important medical device litigation matters impacting 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 unpleasant 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 severe pain, bleeding, exposure of the mesh, infection, and painful intercourse. Follow-up surgery may be required, and permanent injury or disability can occur.
Defective IVC filters:
- These filters are designed to catch blood clots, but can end up puncturing vital bodily structures instead.
