Medical Device Lawyers and Medical Device Attorneys

Defective or dangerous medical devices can form the basis of a product liability lawsuit if they cause injury to a patient or cause the patient's death. Types of dangerous medical equipment can include:

  • Medical appliances
  • Prosthetic devices
  • Surgical implants
  • Surgical equipment
  • Hospital supplies
  • Diagnostic equipment
  • Hearing and visual aids

A product liability attorney or dangerous drug lawyer can aid you in a case against the manufacturer of a defective medical product that resulted in injury or death.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the government entity which oversees the safety of  medical devices. While all states have a time limit (statute of limitations) concerning defective medical products, many also have a discovery rule. A "discovery rule" means that the time limit for a lawsuit does not begin to run until the injured person becomes aware of his or her illness or injury.  If you have recently become aware of an injury that may have been a result of defective medical equipment, a products liability attorney may be able to get you compensation through a medical device lawsuit.
