Every product intended for use as a medical implant, medication or treatment device in the United States must first be approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). But FDA approval for a medical device or product does not remove liability for damages resulting from harmful side effects or injury if the product is shown to be defective by design or manufacture.
Any defective product may cause serious injury but medical implants, drugs and devices often result in serious and life-changing injuries and death because of their use in the body or with the body's natural systems. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury because of a possible defect in a medical implant or device, talk to an attorney at DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Attorneys at Law.
