Defective Medical Products Do More Harm Than Good

Medical products can be virtually any device used by medical practitioners to treat a disease, illness, injury or disability. Some are complex such as defibrillators, stents or implants; others may be simple such as antibacterial wipes.

When one of these devices fails to perform as designed and approved, it may result in a product recall, but patients may already have been harmed. By far the most frequent recalls have involved Class I devices, which include such simple items as elastic bandages and surgical gloves, and which are subject to the least amount of regulatory control by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

If you or a family member suffered injuries because of a defective medical product, you can seek compensation for your losses. At Wise Morrissey Kaveny LLC in Chicago, our attorneys have considerable experience with dangerous product cases. We will investigate the claim and determine how to hold the negligent company liable. We have been representing Illinois residents for nearly two decades.

We Are Skilled Negotiators And Litigators

When medical products are inadequately designed and tested, improperly manufactured or inappropriately marketed without adequate warning or instruction about their use, patients can suffer severe injury or death. In such instances our lawyers are prepared to demonstrate responsibility on the part of manufacturers, medical personnel or sales representatives for negligence and liability.

We and our expert witnesses have in-depth knowledge of medical technology treatment and can demonstrate in court why violations of the proper standards of care entitle our clients and their families to compensation for pain, injury, medical care and other losses.

Whether we reach a settlement or go to trial, you can rely on our experience and skill. Please call our lawyers at 312-985-0930 today. You can also fill out our intake form. Your consultation is free.
