When you undergo surgery to have a medical device implanted in your body, there is no guarantee that the operation will be a success. However, you do have a right to expect that the device will be free of dangerous defects.
Since 1981, the attorneys of the Finney Law Office in St. Louis have pursued compensation for people throughout Missouri who have been harmed by defective medical devices. Even if you signed a release form before you received your implant, you may be entitled to compensation if the device has safety defects that were not disclosed to you. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars to compensate our clients for their medical care, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. Taking action against companies that manufacture dangerous and defective medical devices can help protect other people from suffering similar injuries.
Types Of Defective Medical Devices
There are many thousands of medical devices on the market, and the vast majority of these are safe and effective. Unfortunately, other devices have caused debilitating health effects in numerous patients. Examples of medical devices that have caused patient injuries include:
