Protecting Those Who Have Been Harmed By Medical Devices
When medical product manufacturers release devices such as artificial hips and knees, bladder mesh and surgical tools onto the market without adequate safety testing or with knowledge of the likelihood that patients will be hurt, the law is there to make them pay.
Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, in Westbury helps clients nationwide in defective medical device and mass tort cases.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules allow medical devices with a “substantial equivalence” to devices already on the market to be released to the public without strict, rigorous testing. As a result, many who receive the devices later learn that they have failed and they must undergo revision surgery to repair and prevent further damage.
In previous cases, our firm has achieved positive results for clients who were injured by:
- A Da Vinci Robot
- An Infuse bone graft
- A Mirena IUD
- Transvaginal mesh
