Representation for Patients Injured by Medical Products
Personalized representation and staunch advocacy have been our trademark from the beginning
Personal injury cases are inherently emotional and often involve significant injuries and loss. At Osborne & Francis Law Firm PLLC, our primary goal when we take on your case is to provide the highest level of legal guidance while providing personalized representation and open communication. We accept all types of medical device liability cases and have successfully tackled even the most challenging cases involving the largest manufacturers.
Common medical devices and products with known risks, side effects and complications
It’s not hard to find television commercials, radio or magazine advertisements describing the latest and greatest medical intervention designed to cure all types of conditions. Conversely, there is also a great deal of attention regarding medical device lawsuits that are currently being pursued. The most common medical devices that have led to litigation include:
• Transvaginal mesh – used to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and made by manufacturers such as Boston Scientific, Ethicon, Inc. (Johnson & Johnson), American Medical Systems, Coloplast Corp. and C.R. Bard, Inc.
• Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters – cone-shaped device implanted in the inferior vena cava just below the kidneys designed to catch blood clots that break off from a leg vein before they travel to the heart or lungs
• Hip products – hip replacement devices from manufacturers such as Stryker Orthopedics, DePuy Orthopedics, Biomet Inc., Smith & Nephew, Zimmer Holdings, Inc. and Wright Medical
Medical device liability is a complicated area of the law that requires an enhanced understanding of medical procedures and significant experience with medical device manufacturers. Our mass torts attorneys have successfully litigated complicated cases against the largest medical device and pharmaceutical companies. Most recently, two of our attorneys have been part of a transvaginal mesh lawsuit that resulted in a $26.7 million dollar verdict for the plaintiffs. Regardless of what type of medical device you’ve been adversely affected by, we are here to help you understand your options and achieve a favorable resolution.
