Advances in medical technology have led to the development of remarkable devices that can help us recover from health problems, protect us from unwanted complications, and replace parts of the body that have deteriorated due to age or illness. We count on medical device manufacturers to make sure that products designed to heal us won’t, in fact, make us worse. Sometimes, however, the trust we place in those companies is betrayed. Improperly testing, poor manufacturing, and deceitfully marketed medical devices injure or kill thousands of Americans every year.
At LawMD, our attorneys stand up for victims of such negligence, pursuing and, in many cases, obtaining compensation from the responsible companies. We have stood up to major manufacturers, distributors, and pharmaceutical entities; we know what it takes to effectively fight for your fair recovery. If you were harmed or lost a loved one due to a defective medical device, reach out to our attorneys as soon as possible.

FDA Approval Doesn’t Mean a Medical Device Is Safe
Before a medical device is made available to the public, it must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). But the approval process is far from foolproof.
Just because a device has received FDA approval does not mean it’s safe or free from dangerous and potentially deadly flaws. Often, devices that have already been implanted in or used by tens of thousands of patients are found to have catastrophic problems.
Those problems could involve:
- Defective design
- Improper manufacturing
- Inadequate testing
- Deceptive marketing
- Inadequate warnings
