For people suffering from the affects of defective medical devices or pharmaceutical drugs, Hendler Lyons Flores provides expert legal counsel.
The destructive nature of many defective medical devices has come to light over the past decade. For example, DePuy Orthopaedics ASR Hip implants were recalled after 93,000 were already implanted into patients worldwide. There's also the case of Stryker “Rejuvenate” and "ABG II” hip replacement systems, both of which were recalled in 2012 after serious complaints began surfacing the year before. In fact, nearly 100 percent of the Stryker hip implants will have to be replaced.
The components used in these defective products were determined to cause a range of conditions, including necrosis, which kills cells in healthy tissue, and metallosis, a build-up of metal debris in the body's soft tissues and blood from the metal in the device.
Defective pharmaceutical drugs are another serious issue. People who take Pradaxa, Xarelto or who are taking testosterone replacement therapy may also develop life threatening conditions due to the side effects of these medications.
If a faulty medical device or a dangerous pharmaceutical drug has injured you or a loved one, it’s important to get legal advice early so you don’t allow your rights to expire.
