Defective Medical Device Lawsuits

There is no question that defective medical devices have provided relief to hundreds of thousands of patients; every year, companies introduce new or improved devices that are meant to provide even more healing to those who are suffering. Yet, according to a report published by the NIH in 2002, about 400 people are killed or seriously injured due to defective medical devices. Many times, the company that developed the device was aware of problems before they released it on the market, but kept the information hidden from regulatory agencies and consumers.

The Carse Law Firm helps those who have suffered injuries due to defective medical devices; Transvaginal Mesh is one example of a recalled medical device that has caused problems for patients.

Unfortunately, many patients who have been injured by this device found dealing with the manufacturer and the giant pharmaceutical companies to be almost impossible. The companies often deny wrongdoing, claiming the patient did not follow instructions or simply ignored the complaints of patients and family members who knew something was wrong. In these instances, the Carse Law Firm can help. With 20 years experience dealing with manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies, we know the tactics they use to deny claims and ignore their own negligence.

Manufacturer Negligence

There have been many cases where a manufacturer failed to disclose serious side effects during trials in an effort to rush products to market. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strict policies regarding patient disclosure, and a manufacturer or pharmaceutical company that fails to disclose or knowingly misrepresents the severity of side effects can be found negligent. However, it is often difficult to prove that a defective medical device was the cause of a patient’s injury as well as the manufacturer’s awareness that the injury could occur through use of the product. For this reason, if you or a loved one has suffered due to a faulty medical device, you need to contact the Carse Law Firm right away.
