DEFECTIVE MEDICAL DEVICES

We rely on doctors, surgeons, and specialists to maintain and protect our health. As patients, we trust their opinions as they’re generally qualified by years of schooling and medical training. For instance, when undergoing a procedure such as hip replacement surgery, we trust it will improve overall quality of life. Unfortunately, certain manufacturers produced defective medical devices which led to serious complications, and in some cases, death. What’s more troubling is many manufacturers produced, marketed, and sold devices while aware of high failure rates. To make matters worse, medical professionals and patients were often never informed of these risks.

As a result, The law firm of Di Pietro Partners, LLP is pursuing cases against certain manufacturers whose products cause health complications in patients. As AV Preeminent® rated trial attorneys that work with board certified, medical professionals, we understand your legal and medical rights. Therefore, if you’ve been injured anywhere in the United States by one of the devices below, call our offices for a free and confidential case review. 1.800.712.8462
