MEDICAL DEVICES LAWYERS IN ST. LOUIS
Missouri Defective Medical Devices Attorneys
Though they can be highly innovative, medical device manufacturers are not immune to the institutional inertia common in other industries. Once a product development effort gets underway, there are financial and managerial pressures that keep that effort moving forward, even if questions arise about the safety of the product. This can result in the release into the market of unsafe medical devices that cause serious complications in patients and in some cases, death.
You can not assume that just because a product was approved by the FDA it must be safe. The FDA is overworked and understaffed. It often makes decisions about the safety of a particular medical device based on studies funded by the device manufacturers. They may downplay the risks of a device or even withheld information about potentials dangers in order to get FDA approval and bring a product to market.
Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard evens the playing field for consumers by holding these companies responsible when they put corporate profits over the public’s safety and welfare. If you have suffered ill effects from a defective medical device implant, you have the right to claim compensation. And by taking action to protect your rights, you put medical device manufacturers on notice that they must exercise due care and judgment when developing their products.
