Though medical devices are highly regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), defective and dangerous devices are pushed through the system and placed on the market with an unnerving regularity. Just within the last few years, individuals have suffered from hip implants that can break down and cause metal toxicity, power morcellators that spread cancer, and surgical mesh that causes nearby organ damage, to name only a few examples.
Sadly, complications like these can be worse than a patient’s original problem, and frequently require expensive, costly corrective measures. You should not have to pay for medical care caused by a defective device, and at Evans Moore, LLC, our defective medical device attorneys are prepared to take aggressive legal action against the company that designed or manufactured the device that injured you.
