Denton County Medical Device Injury Lawyers
Vigorous Representation in Medical Device Claims & Litigation
With advances in medicine, many types of medical devices have been created by manufacturers to handle various negative conditions suffered by patients throughout this country. These medical devices range from hip implants to knee replacements, breast implants, and more. The medical device companies who create these items are responsible for providing products that are safe for the public. They are also responsible for providing warnings about any potential risks involved in their use.

Defective Medical Device Cases in Texas
The public has a right to expect – and medical device manufacturers have a duty to provide – medical devices that have been rigorously tested and shown to be safe. However, flaws in the FDA approval process and negligence on the part of manufacturers has led to the discovery of many medical devices that have caused additional harm to the public. In some cases, such devices may be recalled by the FDA or it issues additional warnings about the risks of their use.
Defective medical devises that cause further injury to patients is an especially dangerous situation as these products are generally used on people whose health is already compromised. These individuals may then suffer further complications such as serious infections, tissue perforations, bone damage, organ damage or loss, allergic reactions, heart attacks, strokes, and more. They may require additional and multiple surgeries as well as ongoing medical treatment. In the most serious cases, permanent disability or death may result.
Common defective medical device cases include but are not limited to:
- Hip implants
- Knee replacements
- Elbow implants
- Hernia mesh
- Transvaginal mesh
- Juul and e-cigarettes
- Breast implants
- Complications from the use of IVC blood clot filter devices used to prevent lung clots in individuals who have been involved in accidents or have had surgeries
- Surgical robot devices used in surgical procedures
- Drug-coated stents used to minimize complications when placed in arteries or blood vessels
In many cases, defective devices like those above will have to be removed and/or replaced which requires new surgeries and additional medical care.
