Recalled/Defective Medical Devices, Implants and Prescription Drugs
Helping those harmed by corporate products.
All too often medical devices, implants and prescription drugs turn out to have devastating or even deadly complications.
SUGARMAN attorneys have pursued and litigating cases involving numerous defective or recalled medical devices, implants and prescription drugs, including recent Multi-District Litigation proceedings involving metal-on-metal hip implants and transvaginal mesh. These lawsuits may be brought under a variety of theories, including misrepresentation or deceptively-advertised drugs or devices, negligence in the design, testing and manufacture of the product, breach of warranty, strict liability, and failure to warn of the dangers associated with use of the product.
Fortunately for patients who receive recalled and defective medical implants and prescription drugs, Massachusetts has strong laws in place that provide several protections to those harmed by these products, including for the recovery of double or treble damages in some instances. SUGARMAN’s lawyers have a long history of success in representing those injured or killed as a result of these defective products.
