Medical Device Classification
The responsibility of the Food and Drug Administration is to ensure that all new medical devices, including medications, are tested and then approved before they are placed on the market. However, there have been thousands of products, food or drug, that have been recalled because of their unsafe nature. The FDA is just not able to test every single device for safety and efficiency and so many devices become available to the public and are placed into medical facilities that are actually unsafe. If you have suffered serious injuries or illnesses because of a defective medical device, then contact Florida Attorney Group today to discuss your case and determine your legal options. We will match you with an experienced Florida defective medical device attorney who will fight to protect your rights.

Medical Device Lawsuits
In most cases manufacturing companies are the ones to blame for a defective medical device. However, in some cases the injury can be blamed on the physician for poor care while using the device or doing the surgery. Regardless of who is to blame, it can often be quite daunting to face filing a lawsuit against a manufacturing company or a physician. This is the reason it is important to discuss your injuries and concerns with a qualified product injury attorney who has years of experience with filing lawsuits against major companies. Just because they are a well known, large company or physician does not mean it is okay that you should suffer. Our member lawyers will work diligently on your behalf to fight against any defective medical device that has brought you pain and suffering.
How a Florida Defective Medical Device Attorney Can Help
Device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by defective medical devices may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
