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.

Our attorneys have been helping patients with cases against some of the largest device companies and corporations in the country, including:
