Medical Devices & Pharmaceuticals
Defective Medical Device Attorneys in Southern California
Manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals are obligated to make sure their products are free from defects, are reasonably safe to use, and are properly tested before being broadly released. They must also properly market these devices and drugs and must inform patients and medical practitioners of the potential side effects or complications associated with their use. If they do not, unsuspecting patients may be seriously injured or may even lose their lives.

Why do I need a defective medical device lawyer?Medical defect cases are complicated, requiring considerable experience and meticulous research. Cases may also require consults with medical experts to uncover every detail. Many cases are tried as complex class action lawsuits, and manufacturers have entire legal teams specifically for such circumstances.
Who is liable in a dangerous medical device or drug case?The manufacturers of medical devices and defective drugs are obligated by the law to provide consumers with safe products that have been thoroughly tested before being put on the market. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must approve the device or pharmaceutical for consumer release, but even with this oversight, defects in design and manufacturing can cause harm.
Will I need to go to trial?Dangerous drug and defective medical device claims usually are tried in class action suits, where groups of injured plaintiffs bring suit against a manufacturer. Cases may also be settled out of court, though these complex matters require a skilled attorney to level the playing field and fight for full and fair compensation.
How do I get medical care for the injuries I sustained?A claim for compensation seeks money to pay for current and future medical care, rehabilitation, and punitive damages, if necessary. Your health and well-being are of prime concern, so never delay in seeking medical treatment. In addition, ongoing medical care can provide vital evidence needed to strengthen your claim and prevent a condition from getting worse.
