When Medical Equipment Causes Death or Harm
New equipment is being designed constantly to help diagnose and treat medical conditions. While most is carefully tested before being put to use, some is rushed to market too soon. This can lead to serious problems, particularly when it is a medical device that is inserted into a patient's body such as a joint replacement. Fixing the problem can require additional surgeries. Sometimes, the damage is irreparable. When medical device manufacturers knew or should have known about the potential dangers, they can be held accountable. Our trial lawyers are here to see that they are.
At White & Weddle, P.C., we have already built an impressive record of success against big name opponents in front of a jury. For example, we have won major cases against various manufacturers for complications caused by defective knee and hip devices.
Our attorneys handle cases involving defective joint replacements of all kinds, including hip replacements and knee replacements including Smith & Nephew, Johnson & Johnson and DePuy. These joint replacements are constantly in the news and under scrutiny. They are frequently subject to recalls.
Defective Medical Device Multidistrict Litigation and Class Actions
Many cases involving defective medical products will be resolved by teaming with other law firms across the country in either multidistrict litigation or a class action. In some cases, this is the best approach. In others, we may recommend staying out of these larger types of litigation, particularly if action needs to be taken against the doctor who inserted the defective hip replacement or used the defective medical device, or the local sales representative who sold it to the doctor. Our goal is to do what makes the most sense for you.
