Sullivan & Brill, LLP: Assisting Victims Since 2001
Medical devices are instruments, apparatuses, implements, or machines that are worn, implanted, or utilized for the purpose of healing, treatment, or enhancing appearance. Although they may provide delivery of medication, pharmaceutical products are not their primary component. Examples can include cosmetic implants, hip joint replacements, and surgical instruments.
Regrettably, sometimes these devices end up doing more harm than good. They may aggravate the ailment they were designed to treat, create an additional disorder, or even cause death.

If you or a loved one has experienced the devastating impact of a defective device, our compassionate New York personal injury attorneys can help. Our team can present the formidable advocacy you require to hold liable manufactures accountable for the injuries they have caused.

Adding insult to injury, repairing the damage caused by such devices can include additional surgeries, lost time from work, pain and suffering, and compounded medical bills. What was looked forward to as a successful treatment may end up resulting in permanent disability or death.

Holding Defective Medical Device Manufacturers Accountable
The medical device industry is big business. Yearly revenue is in excess of $100 billion! The quest for massive profits has led some of these manufacturers to rush testing and falsify results. Sometimes, the defects in these products do not come to light until they are used on a large scale. In these cases, companies who produce the devices can be slow to warn consumers of the potential dangers.
No matter how the product got to the medical marketplace, or how long it has been in use, the manufacturers of dangerous medical devices need to be held accountable for the suffering they have caused.
