Defective Medical Devices

Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

When a medical device company or pharmaceutical giant makes a mistake, the patient who had the device implanted or took the drug pays the price.

At the New York law office of Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys work with a team of lawyers representing patients who have been injured due to a defective medical device or dangerous drug.

When manufacturers place defective products on the market and promote those products to doctors and patients, those companies have a responsibility to make the product safe for its intended use. To schedule a free consultation to learn how we will help you hold defective medical device manufacturers responsible for your injuries, contact us online or call us at 212-750-1200 or 1.888.4.TGLLAW.

Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for testing and approving medical devices and prescription drugs. However, fast-track approval programs have resulted in numerous devices and drugs being placed on the market without rigorous safety testing. As a result, an increasing number of patients are being seriously injured by defective medical devices and dangerous drugs. Among these items are:

  • Artificial hips and artificial knee joints, include the DePuy ASR hip implant and the DePuy Pinnacle Acetabular Cup
  • Heart devices such as stents, pacemakers, defibrillators and heart valves
  • Dental products
  • Contact lenses
  • Respiratory devices
  • Artificial disks
  • Implantable contraceptives and IUDs
  • Silicone implants
  • Medicine pumps
  • Surgical mesh, including transvaginal mesh patches
  • Dangerous drugs, including SSRI antidepressants, Avandia, Chantix, Levaquin, Raptiva and Yaz

Like most manufactured products, a medical device's defect is typically caused by a poor or defective design, a manufacturing error, or an inadequate warning of the product's known dangers. In the case of most dangerous drugs, manufacturers knew about dangerous side effects, but failed to warn patients of those consequences.

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, our defective medical device lawyers know the law and have the financial, technological and scientific resources to hold manufacturers responsible for their mistakes. Call 212-750-1200 or 1.888.4.TGLLAW or contact us at our New York office via email to discuss your lawsuit options.
