Knowledgeable Lawyers Focused on Defective Medical Products
Litigation involving defective medical products can result from design defects or manufacture defects. Design defects involving medical products often involve products that are inherently dangerous. Manufacturing defects are defects that make an otherwise safe product dangerous, as a result of improper manufacture. In addition, manufactures and medical professionals have a duty to provide patients sufficient information as to the possible side effects of a medical device or implant.
Litigation involving defective medical products can be complex and costly. Showing that a defect in a medical product was the cause of an injury or death requires an experienced attorney with the financial and human resources to prove the cause and effect. At The McLeod Firm, we routinely partner with some of the nations leading medical professionals on defective medical device litigation. Our attorneys have the experience and resources to handle any defective medical product litigation.
Often the makers of these products do not honestly report important information concerning risk of use to the patients or to the Government in the FDA review process. It becomes the lawyer’s duty to discover these failures and seek compensation for people injured through such failures.
