Medical Device Defects
When a medical device fails to perform its function because of a defect, serious injury can occur regardless of the skill of the medical professional and lives can be lost. At Heinlein Beeler Mingace & Heineman, P.C., our attorneys represent individuals who have suffered injuries, and family members who have lost loved ones because of a defective medical device. This area of law involves the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and, because of its complexity, requires an added level of experience to ensure proper legal representation. Attorneys at our firm have litigated these cases through the Federal Courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and are able to handle claims of defective medical devices.
If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective medical device, contact our firm to arrange a consultation.Medical Devices Require FDA Approval
The FDA regulates the release of medical devices. This is a process that often takes years. Products need to obtain approval from various levels of the FDA. Approval is gained through proving the safety and effectiveness of the product. These medical devices are often used to sustain life or prevent further health impairments. When a medical device is defective, it can threaten the life of the person relying on its function. Our firm provides experienced representation to people and families who are impacted by defective medical devices. These include:
- Heart valves
- Pedicle screws
Our firm provides compassionate and effective representation to families who wish to bring a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a loved one. Our firm has the resources to perform a thorough investigation into the product's defect. We often refer to product specialists to aid in this investigation.
