Our Defective Medical Device Lawyers Handle Cases Involving:

Disclaimer: Our description of your legal rights is not intended to imply that any product is defective. That can only be determined through a case-specific investigation by a product liability attorney.

Medical Device Approval Process

Before medical devices can be marketed to the general public, they must first go through a process of approval with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Within the FDA, the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) is responsible for testing and approving each medical device for both safety and effectiveness. 

Sometimes the CDRH will find medical device defects and refuse to approve the product before it goes to market. If a medical product that has already been approved is found to be defective, the FDA may issue a voluntary recall from the manufacturer. If the manufacturer refuses to comply, the FDA can make this recall mandatory. Unfortunately, the FDA may only learn about a defect after it has caused serious injury.

What Does a Defective Medical Product Liability Attorney Do?

First and foremost, the defective medical product liability attorneys at Kelley Law Group, P.C. will ensure that medical device manufacturers are held accountable for defective medical products.

Medical device manufacturers are responsible for any injuries or death caused by defective products that they market. They also have a duty to alert the public about potential safety hazards or problems with their product.

If we feel you have a valid claim against a medical device manufacturer, a defective medical device lawyer will begin by clearly identifying the product defect or defects that apply to your case.

These defects may include: 

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Defects induced by the user

Once the defect has been established, our defective medical device lawyers will review if the medical device manufacturer has been compliant with state and federal regulations. We will also assess whether they have followed recognized performance and design standards.

Compensation for Defective Medical Product Liability Claims

If we find a medical device manufacturer has neglected to provide a safe and effective medical product, our defective medical device attorneys can help you seek compensation for a medical product liability claim. Any damages awarded will depend on the extent of your injuries and may include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional suffering
  • Loss of physical capacity or ability

A defective medical product liability attorney can advise you on the types of compensation for which you may be eligible.
