Washington DC Defective Medical Device Attorney
Advances in medical technology have led to the development of remarkable devices that can help us recover from health problems, protect us from unwanted complications, and replace parts of the body which have deteriorated because of age or illness.
We count on medical device manufacturers to make sure that these products designed to heal us won’t in fact make us worse. Sometimes, however, the trust we place in those companies is betrayed. Improperly tested, manufactured, or marketed medical devices seriously injure or kill thousands of Americans every year.
At The Rich Firm, PC, our Washington DC defective medical device attorneys stand up for victims of such negligence, pursuing and obtaining compensation from the companies responsible.
FDA Approval Doesn’t Mean a Medical Device is Safe
Before a medical device is made available to the public, it must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). But the approval process is far from foolproof.
Just because a device has received FDA approval does not mean it’s safe or free from dangerous and potentially deadly flaws. Often, devices which have already been implanted in or used by tens of thousands of patients are found to have catastrophic problems.
Those problems could involve:
- Defective design
- Improper manufacturing
- Inadequate testing
- Deceptive marketing
- Inadequate warnings
