Modern technology has allowed for implantable medical devices to be engineered and manufactured to precision standards. Despite the intense design and development efforts that go into these products, some fail to perform adequately after surgery. The result? Discomfort, pain and injury, which often require additional surgery. In more extreme cases, a defective medical product or implant can result in a patient’s death.

Applying Legal, Medical and Technical Resources
Most product liability cases hinge on the findings and testimony of technical experts. In cases involving a defective medical product, this technical expertise plays the central role. When representing you, our firm will work with experts in biomedical engineering, materials science, surgery and other appropriate disciplines. These professionals can identify the root cause of product failure and if necessary, support the litigation effort in court testimony. Our attorneys detail these experts’ findings to great effect throughout the legal process. In addition, our firm will calculate your financial losses and place a value on your pain, suffering and other non-economic losses for inclusion in your claim. Our goal is to obtain full compensation and justice for the losses you have suffered.
