Defective Medical Device Attorney in Pennsylvania
If You've Been Hurt by a Defective Medical Device, We Can Help
Doctors and other health care professionals use medical equipment to help people in need. Yet, many medical-related products on the market have proven to be dangerous to consumers due to defects, lack of testing or general negligence on the part of the manufacturer.
Some products that have been linked to unwanted side effects and injuries include hip and knee replacement implants and surgical mesh products. Any medical device or equipment that causes injury to the consumer in the normal course of use may be considered defective.
- Bone cement in knee replacements
- IVC filters
- Metal-on-metal hip replacements
- Physiomesh for hernia repair
Please note: When in the best interest of the client, defective medical equiptment cases may be referred to other law firms.

What Should I Do if I've Been Injured by a Medical Device?
If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective medical device, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your physical, emotional and financial hardships. Contact your doctor for medical treatment, then talk to a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer about pursuing a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the defective device that caused your injury.
For some dangerous devices or equipment, the manufacturer of the product may issue a recall. If the device that caused you injury is recalled, it is possible that the manufacturer will contact you. If you are contacted by any representatives from the medical device manufacturer, it is important that you do not speak with them or sign any documents until you have retained a qualified lawyer to protect your rights.
