Medical Device Recalls

Pursue Justice with an Alabama Defective Medical Device Lawyer

Medical technology is intended to improve our lives by treating conditions that cause pain, prevent us from taking part in the activities we enjoy, or accomplish our goals in life. It may be a shock to hear that a medical device you depend on as much as a natural body part – such as a hip or knee replacement – has been recalled, but this is becoming more common. In recent years, many of these devices are injuring patients due to poor design or manufacturing defects. Only 18 high risk devices were recalled by the FDA in 2008, but by 2014 the number grew to over 60.

At Cunningham Bounds, we have represented the rights of injured clients since 1958. We are proud to have helped thousands of clients obtain compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. As a result of our commitment to excellence and our impressive track record of success, our firm has obtained billions in verdicts and settlements.

Causes of Medical Device Recalls

Most of these medical devices were recalled because they were outright defective, failed to provide the intended results, or because they were found to be contaminated. Increasingly, manufacturers are often more concerned with getting their devices to market than performing the proper trials needed to ensure that they are safe.

Adding to the uncertainty is the fact that many products are allowed to circumvent some of the testing and trials by using the 510(k) program, where manufacturers must only prove that the device is similar to existing devices on the market in order to gain approval. The possible complications from surgically implanted artificial medical devices, such as infections, are frequent enough already, without defective parts causing far more serious injuries.

Proving that the manufacturer is liable, however, requires an experienced law team familiar with product liability and recalls, as well as the medical and bioengineering principles underlying the design of the medical products at issue. Please speak with one of our attorneys today to receive the compensation you deserve and to make sure that dangerous products are taken off the market.
