San Antonio Defective Medical Device Attorneys
Drug companies and the manufacturers of medical devices often profit without considering the overall safety of their products. When a medical product is unsafe or is not properly tested, it can cause serious injury, even fatalities. At Rush & Gransee, L.C., we have experience in the investigation and pursuit of claims related to medical device and drug injuries. Our firm represents individuals and families who have suffered as a result of a serious injury or a wrongful death.
When you suffer as a result of negligent or intentional distribution of a harmful medical product, we will investigate your case and aggressively pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. Contact a San Antonio defective medical device lawyer for an initial consultation or case evaluation.
In one recent case, our firm was contacted by a family to pursue claims against a physician for injuries resulting from a medical treatment. After our investigation we were able to determine that the manufacturer of the medical device used by the physician was actually responsible. Instead of pursuing a claim solely against the doctor (a claim that would have had limited non-economic damages of only $250,000 under Texas law) we were successful in obtaining a multimillion-dollar settlement from the manufacturer of the device.
If you or someone you love has suffered an injury from a defective medical device or a drug, or you believe that a product caused an injury or wrongful death, it is important to begin an immediate investigation to preserve evidence for your case. We have significant experience asserting the rights of victims in litigation involving dangerous drugs and defective medical products cases and will seek to maximize your compensation for any injury or loss.
Defective Devices • Dangerous Drugs • Inadequate Testing • Poor Instructions
The manufacturing and marketing of medical devices is regulated by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), a department of the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Devices sold and used by medical or health care providers are classified by the FDA according to necessary abilities and/or qualifications required to use the device safely and effectively. Reports on devices which have malfunctioned or caused death or serious injury are collected by the CDRH and stored in the Medical Device Reporting (MDR) database and the Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database.
We will thoroughly investigate the products and devices involved in any claim and will aggressively pursue responsible corporations that have improperly manufactured a device, improperly labeled a device, or provided improper training and guidance on the use of a device.
