Defective medical devices, such as hip and knee implants, and other defective medical products can be just as dangerous as defective medications. A defective medical device can kill you and a survivable defect can change your life forever. Implanted medical devices cannot always been removed safely, and some defects can require multiple surgeries. If you have been harmed by a defective medical device please talk to one of the experienced drug injury lawyers listed in this website right away.
