We live in an age of many scientific and technological breakthroughs. There are manufacturers of medical devices that design and produce products revolutionizing health care. When a doctor recommends an implant to treat a medical condition, we trust and expect that the product will improve our health.
However, on some occasions an implanted medical device does more harm than good. This may be true due to poor testing of the product, scant research before its production or a manufacturing error.
Our firm helps persons who have suffered a serious injury as a result of a defective medical device. If you suffered a serious injury due to a defective medical device, then you must act quickly and contact a medical malpractice law firm. There is a time limit for filing a lawsuit.
