Defective Medical Devices

Some of the most common mass torts involve defective or dangerous medical devices. We know how serious these cases can be, often resulting in lifelong injuries and damages. As manufacturers often develop thousands of the same defective product, countless people can suffer injuries. This is why a mass tort will be brought against the manufacturer or company, consolidating each injury victim's case. Knowing how to craft a strong case within a mass tort is crucial.
