Defective Medical Device Lawyers in New York
Consultations Available 24/7
Medical equipment must be approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), but the manufacturer of the device is ultimately responsible to ensure the safety of the product. When a medical device is discovered to be defective, the manufacturer is responsible for informing the FDA and the public about the flaw and any potential risks. If the manufacturer of the medical device does not properly inform the public and the FDA in a timely manner about the defect, that can be considered an act of negligence and the manufacturer is liable for any injuries, illnesses, or deaths that occur. At The Paris Law Group, PC, our New York defective medical device lawyers are devoted to seeking justice for clients who have been harmed by the devices they’re supposed to trust to work properly.

Common Medical Device Defects
Every day people use all types of medical devices such as hip replacements, transvaginal mesh, pacemakers, and more. They use these devices in the hopes and expectations that they will make their lives better without pain or the likelihood of death. However, negligence on the part of the manufacturer can leave users of a medical device at risk for a multitude of debilitating injuries. These risks are of serious concern for those who require the devices for long-term use.
Common defective medical devices include:
- Defective knee replacement or hip implant parts
- Malfunctioning insulin or pain pumps
- Faulty pacemakers
- Non-sterilized devices
- Leaky heart valve implants
Many people rely on medical devices in order to remain healthy, so when problems occur, it’s important you bring up the matter as soon as possible so others can avoid the same situation. If you become injured by a device, you and your family should be compensated for your pain and medical expenses.
