Representation For Those Harmed By Defective Medical Devices

Manufacturers, distributors and, to some extent, medical professionals have a duty to make sure medical devices are safe for patients. If you or someone you love has been injured or has died as the result of a defective medical device, significant compensation for your losses may be available.

Michael M. Calabro, Esq., is an Alpharetta, Georgia-based lawyer who represents victims of defective medical devices. He is dedicated to recovering maximum possible compensation for the related damages.

Working To Recover Full And Fair Compensation

A medical device must be tested for several years before being approved for use by patients. Despite the rigorous process required by the Food and Drug Administration, issues with a medical device may not surface until it has been widely disseminated among patients. For example, it may not become apparent that a mechanical implant can cause internal bleeding if it ruptures until it has done so.

Once problems with defective medical devices become known, they are often recalled for future use — e.g., hip replacement recalls. Unfortunately, due to the way in which some devices are used, recovery of the product may be dangerous. In these cases and in other related scenarios, those who suffered as a result of using such devices are entitled to compensation for resulting additional medical treatment and health care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

In rare cases, a manufacturer, distributor or medical professional may have been aware of the potential for problems, but continued to sell and use the medical device anyway without providing proper warning to patients. In such cases, punitive damages may be available.

Exploring Your Options For Financial Recovery

Mr. Calabro will build a product liability claim designed to recover damages on your behalf. He will begin by conducting an investigation to gather information about research and development, production, testing, use and problems caused by use of the defective medical device. He will offer his honest assessment of your case and then pursue a financial settlement through the most effective and efficient means possible.
