Scovern Law Holds Medical Device Manufacturers Accountable for Serious Injuries Caused by Their Products.
Mistakes happen, but when you are the manufacturer of a medical device, you need to find your mistakes before they become a source of serious injury to patients. Most of us have come to trust in the safety of these devices. After all, our doctors recommend these procedures. Surely the companies that manufacture medical devices would not sell them without sufficient testing to ensure the products’ safety. Unfortunately, the American public’s trust is all too often undeserved. Each year, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is deluged with more than 200,000 reports of medical devices that have malfunctioned or been involved in an injury. In addition, over 2,000 device-related deaths are reported annually. Within just the last few years, recalls have more than doubled for high and moderate-risk medical devices.
