Columbus Defective Product Lawyer
Medical devices and products continue to evolve, with new products entering the marketplace each year. These devices are essential for many people to help them manage chronic conditions or overcome physical limitations. Because they are so important, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates them and will remove any that are defective.
Sadly, thousands of people die each year from defective medical devices, and many more suffer serious injury. If you believe a device or product has harmed you, contact Oliver Law Office today. Our Columbus defective product lawyer will listen to your story and offer an initial assessment of your claim.
Attorney Jami Oliver can assist anyone hurt by a defective device or product. She has extensive experience with the following:
- Recalled Drugs
- Defective Medical Devices
- IVC Filters
- Surgical Staplers
- Hernia Mesh
- Philips CPAP machines
- Monsanto Roundup Litigation and MDL
- Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
- Exactech Implants
Many lawsuits based on dangerous devices or products are brought as class actions, where multiple people join their claims together. Class actions help those with similar claims bring their lawsuits in an efficient manner. Multidistrict litigation also centralizes these cases in one federal court.
The Oliver Law Office can help our clients join an MDL or ongoing class action. We can also file an initial lawsuit if that is more appropriate. There are many considerations, such as the type and extent of your injury, as well as the location of evidence.
Devices and products are recalled for certain defects, such as:
- Defective design—the design is dangerous and can cause a product or device to not work properly.
- Defective manufacture—the way a device is put together or the materials used in the manufacture make it dangerous.
- Defective packaging—poor packaging can expose implants to oxygen, leading to degradation.
- Defective instructions—inadequate instructions make medical devices more dangerous than they need to be. Improper labeling also fails to disclose side effects or complications.
We stay abreast of the most recent recalls and work with many expert witnesses who help us identify when a product is dangerous. New products get pulled all the time, and some dangerous products are never recalled by the manufacturer or government.
Jami Oliver Has Your Back
Taking on the government or a giant corporation is a tall task. Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers have some of the largest NYC or Chicago law firms representing them. You need a seasoned advocate in your corner who can push for fair compensation. No one who uses a defective product or device should have to pay for the cost of its replacement, as well as medical treatment for other conditions, like cancer. Defective products cost the nation billions of dollars each year, and powerful manufacturers should end up paying the bill. Our firm can help you get the justice you need.
