Defective Medical Device Lawyers
Every year hundreds of new medical devices are brought to market, including joint replacement components, cosmetic implants and surgical instruments. Although these devices are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and are required to be approved before being introduced to the market, the approval process is not capable of ensuring that all devices are safe. Moreover, many defects in the design of medical devices do not come to light until the device is used on a large scale. Often, the companies that make these devices are slow to warn consumers of potential dangers that are observed after the device is in widespread use because they stand to loose millions or billions of dollars in profits.
A recent example of this can be seen in the recall of hip implants made by DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson. Sullivan & Brill, LLP is currently pursuing cases where an individual was implanted with a DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular System or ASR Hip Resurfacing System after 2003. The New York office of Sullivan & Brill, LLP is currently investigating or pursuing lawsuits concerning the following defective medical devices:
