If Defective Medical Devices, Faulty Implants or Hazardous Drugs Hurt You, Contact a NY Attorney

Dangerous drugs can also apply to defective medical devices, such as malfunctioning kidney dialysis equipment, breast implants, IUDs, heart stents and pacemakers. Here are just a few surgical implants, artificial joints and medical devices that have been recalled by the Food & Drug Administration or have been the subject of patient complaints:

  • DePuy Hip Replacement
  • Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads
  • Medtronic INFUSE® Spinal Fusion Bone Graft
  • Stryker Hip Implants
  • St. Jude Heart Defibrillator
  • Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) Injuries
  • Thoratec HeartMate II LVAS heart pump
  • Wright Pro Femur
  • Conserve Plus Hip Implants
  • Zimmer NexGen Knee Implant Failure

The harsh reality is that pharmaceutical companies often launch a new drug, medical device or other healthcare-related product onto the marketplace without adequately testing the product beforehand to ensure that it is safe for public use. Only after receiving reports of injuries or death will the FDA, drug manufacturer or device company order a drug recall. This “profits before safety” approach is what has so many people like you contacting us to help them obtain compensation for the injuries they’ve suffered.
