Defective Surgical Implants
Columbus Attorneys Representing Patients Injured by Defective Surgical Implants
Medical product liability claims in Ohio
Advances in medical technology give patients more opportunities to regain their health and feel and look better. However, a defective surgical implant can cause substantial pain, discomfort, disability, disfigurement and, potentially, chronic and fatal illnesses.
Columbus personal injury law firm Lawrence A. Riehl Law Offices was founded in 1981 to protect the rights of patients to safe medical procedures and products. We pursue the maximum possible compensation for injuries caused by defective surgical implants, prosthetics and medical devices.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with the review, approval and recall of medical devices. Just because a device is on the market, that does not mean it is safe. Unfortunately, recalls are often triggered by a patient’s serious injury or death. An otherwise safe product can cause serious harm if defects occur during the device’s manufacturing, distribution or surgical implantation.
If your device has been recalled or if you are experiencing adverse symptoms after surgery, our Ohio personal injury attorneys guide you toward the medical care you need while pursuing the compensation to which you are entitled.
Negligent manufacturers, distributors and sellers
Our dedicated personal injury lawyers fully investigate all aspects of a defective product to determine who is responsible for your injuries. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, we may file a claim against the manufacturer, distributor or seller of your defective medical device or implant, including:
- Breast implants
- Cardiac pacemakers
- Heart defibrillators
- Hip implants
- Intrauterine devices
- Knee implants
- Stents and shunts
- Transvaginal surgical mesh
In addition, we seek damages against the medical facility and doctors if you were injured by mistakes made during surgical implantation.
