Most medical advancements are released with the promise of making patients' lives better. Medical devices especially are created and sold to consumers with the assumption that the devices will help people recover from injuries or illnesses, or that it will reduce pain.
However, when manufacturers rush to put products on shelves, they miss or ignore defects that can cause serious pain or injury to the patients who use those medical devices. If you or a loved one suffered because of a defective medical device, an attorney can help protect your rights.
At Provost Umphrey Law Firm L.L.P., we have been protecting the rights of injured people in Beaumont and throughout Texas for more than 40 years. We have experience investing in and trying a range of
products liability lawsuits.
Common Types of Defective Medical Devices
Chances are, if you suffered because of a defective medical device, someone else did too. We have the resources and legal network to pursue individual or class-action lawsuits for any defective medical device, including:
- DePuy ASR and Pinnacle hip implants and Biomet hip replacements
- DePuy knee replacements
- Transvaginal mesh
- Medtronic pacemakers
- Medtronic Infuse bone graft
Although the list above includes some of the most well-known defective medical devices, hundreds of devices have been found to be defective.
Any malfunctioning device, any implant that leaks or breaks, any improperly made or nonsterilized device, and any faulty replacement parts can be grounds for a lawsuit.
