Faulty Devices

The approval process for many of the medical devices we use is notoriously lax.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is charged with thoroughly vetting companies who manufacture medical devices.

But many devices are approved without thorough clinical trials because of the 501(k) approval process. And the devices that are approved under the stricter Pre-market Approval Process are shielded from litigation if the faulty medical device is shown to be unsafe down the line. 

The product liability lawyers and attorneys at Schmidt National Law Group have been taking these large medical device companies to court for decades, fighting for those injured by faulty products. Our attorneys have been helping patients with cases against some of the largest device companies and corporations in the country, including:
