Defective Medical Product

In the past 10 years, more than 150 major medical devices have been recalled from the market because they posed significant risk of injury—and in some cases death—to the general public. We rely on medical products companies to create drugs and medical devices that are safe and reliable.

Unfortunately, even products that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can have serious design flaws or manufacturing defects that result in the device failing. The consequences of a defective medical device injury can change your life. It’s even harder to deal with the emotional and financial fallout when the device failed because the manufacturer cut corners to maximize profits, or released a product they knew posed serious danger but decided these risks fell into an “acceptable failure” range. That’s when you should turn to the Novins, York & Jacobus.
