Defective Medical Device Lawsuit
People who have injuries to their hips or knees, or who have a degenerative or painful condition of the body may find relief from certain medical devices. The technology in today’s medical devices is nothing short of miraculous and offers a truly life-changing opportunity for those whose experience with the devices is good. But for some, such devices can cause significant injury and harm often because of a faulty design or manufacturing which renders them defective. In an alarming number of cases, the manufacturers may be aware of the defects, yet put the product on the market anyway so as not to jeopardize company profits.
The New York product liability lawyer team at The Sanders Firm is dedicated to helping those who have been injured as a result of defective products in New York. Each year, medical device manufacturing companies pay millions of dollars in settlements to people who are injured by defective medical products, many of which also require painful revision surgeries to correct and, in some cases, may cause permanent damage to the body.
If you or a loved one has suffered injury due to a defective medical device, you may be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering, lost earnings, medical bills and rehabilitation costs.

Liability for defective medical devices
There are often several defendants in cases involving defective medical devices. The respective roles of manufacturers, distributors, and doctors must be carefully examined to reveal who is liable for the resulting injuries. The injuries must also be thoroughly researched and understood to verify that the harm suffered was in fact caused by the defective medical device and not some other pre-existing condition or outside force. The Sanders Firm works hard to ensure that you will receive compensation from the responsible parties.
Each year in New York, victims recover significant compensation in the form of settlements and jury verdicts for injuries that they suffered as a result of defective medical devices.
