Common Defective Medical Devices

At The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm, we accept a vast array of cases involving defective medical devices, such as:

  • Knee implants
  • Hip implants
  • Hernia mesh
  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters
  • Essure, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and other birth control implants

Defective medical device cases can be difficult to prove without the help of an attorney. It is common for the company or corporation responsible to attempt to cover up the harm done by a defective medical device. It may claim that your injury was unpreventable, a rare side effect, or the like. Remember, you have the right to know the true cause of your injury. If that cause is a device defect, you also have the right to be compensated for your damages related to the injury. You can, therefore, sue the defective medical device designer or manufacturer for damages, such as pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of quality of life, rehabilitative care, etc.
