San Francisco Implant Device Recall Lawyers
Each year hundreds of new and different medical devices are placed on the market by medical device makers, including joint replacement components (knees, elbows, hips, ankles), pacemakers, bone substitutes, orthopedic hardware and cosmetic implants.
The California defective medical device attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger represent patients, and surviving family members of patients, who suffered serious injury or death as a result of a defective medical product.
If you were injured by a defective medical device, it is critical that you speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Defective medical devices are a type of product liability case. They are complex and issues of federal safety and FDA approval may pre-empt state law. Finding a lawyer who is skilled in this type of case is key to a successful recovery.
