Doctors and patients both depend upon companies to market new medical products to produce the best outcomes for patients. Any time we discover that a device manufacturer has been accused of putting profits over consumers, our attorneys begin the search to identify those entities who have responsibility for the damages incurred. In some instances, the company or distributor will have already taken steps to recall the device or to provide adequate warnings and instructions. It can be vital for the injured party to seek legal counsel as soon as they learn of a defective product.
