Contact the compassionate and dedicated Boise medical device litigation attorneys at Pedersen Whitehead & Hanby to explore whether you may have a claim for damages.
You deserve money damages after being injured by a defective medical device
Medical device litigation is a way to receive compensation from corporations which have profited from selling medical devices that, due to a failure to ensure that the devices were properly manufactured or to adequately test their effects on patients, caused you injury.
Pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers, in a hurry to profit from devices they’ve developed, will rush new products to US markets without adequate testing. While the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is tasked with ensuring that only safe and effective devices reach the market, device manufacturers often exert pressure on the FDA to approve new devices, and are even known to lie about the extent of testing or the conclusions reached by those tests. Even when these corporations receive complaints regarding the safety of these devices from injured patients, they may refuse to remove a product from the market over concerns for their bottom line. Often, it takes an FDA recall to get these flawed and dangerous products off the market.
Even where liability for your injuries seems obvious, going up against large, well-funded corporations in a claim for damages requires skilled and experienced medical device litigators. The lawyers at Pedersen Whitehead & Hanby know what it takes to win money damages for patients who, in their time of need, were rendered even more injured by a dangerous medical device.
