New York City Defective Medical Device Attorneys

Defective Medical Devices Put Lives at Risk

Medical devices are designed to improve our lives ― and, in some cases, save our lives. Unfortunately, not all medical devices are as safe or effective as others.

In fact, many medical devices that have hit the market over the years were eventually found to be dangerous due to a defect in the manufacturing process or simply because they were defectively designed. In many cases, these defective medical devices made the condition they were designed to treat significantly worse.

At Keith Silverstein & Associates, we understand how overwhelming it can be when a defective medical device threatens your health and well-being. Fortunately, our attorneys will fight to protect your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve. If a family member has died because of a defective medical device, we can help you pursue a wrongful death suit.

You should not have to suffer because a medical device manufacturer rushed a dangerous product to market without adequate testing. Contact Keith Silverstein & Associates today to schedule a FREE consultation with an experienced New York City defective medical device lawyer.

You can contact us online or call our office at (646) 813-3922.

No Matter the Device, We Can Help

While there have been hundreds of alleged defective medical devices throughout the years, some devices involved in recent legal disputes include:

  • Defective inferior vena cava (IVC) filters: While IVC filters were designed to prevent blood clots and pulmonary embolisms, IVC filters in some patients have allegedly fractured, thereby piercing tissue and sending deadly shards to the person’s lungs and heart.
  • Defective transvaginal mesh: According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, thousands of complications have been reportedly linked to transvaginal mesh, including pain, infection, bleeding, scarring, and organ perforation.
  • Defective metal-on-metal hip replacements: Metal-on-metal hip replacements have been known to wear over time, often leading to tissue damage and metallic poisoning. Issues have been reported with several hip replacement systems, including certain devices manufactured by DePuy, Zimmer, Stryker, and Wright.
  • Defective knee replacement parts: Serious issues such as premature loosening and high failure rates have been associated with knee replacements, including various Zimmer knee implants.
  • Defective pacemakers and defibrillators: When a pacemaker stops or fails to keep proper rhythm, the patient’s life is at risk.

Whether your injury involves any of the above-mentioned products or another defective medical device, we can help you seek justice, so contact us today. The best way for you to hold negligent manufacturers accountable for their actions is to file a lawsuit. Let us help.
