California Defective Medical Device and Implant Attorney
Protecting Your Right to Fair Compensation
There are several complex and dynamic areas of law that govern the responsibilities of pharmaceutical and medical device companies. When victims suffer injuries or illnesses as the direct result of using a medical device or implant, they have the legal right to pursue compensation from the responsible manufacturer. Unfortunately, these legal areas are constantly evolving and large corporations tend to defend themselves aggressively. In order to provide yourself with the experience, legal support and resources you need to hold companies liable for your damages, you need to work with The Senators Firm.
Our defective medical device and implant practice has been a strong suit of our firm and we are prepared to represent victims who have experienced any of the following adverse effects or complications:
AlloDerm Skin Graft
AlloDerm is an acellular human dermis (AHD) product used in hernia and breast reconstruction procedures. Several studies have linked AlloDerm to serious injuries and complications, including a high risk for hernia recurrence.
Defective Hip Replacement Systems
Defective hip replacement systems, especially metal on metal hip implants, have been heavily scrutinized by the healthcare community for their high failure rates and numerous complications. Injured patients can pursue compensation against manufacturers of defective or recalled systems.
Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant
After it was discovered that Stryker Rejuvenate hip implants pose several serious hazards to patients, Stryker Orthopaedics issued an Urgent Field Safety Notice to recall their product and warn consumers of potential dangers caused by the corrosion of the implant's metal parts.
Transvaginal and Pelvic Surgical Mesh
Transvaginal and pelvic surgical mesh has been used in a number of medical procedures. In recent years, there have been thousands of reports of serious complications following the use of these devices, including infections and pelvic organ prolapse, among others.
Zimmer Durom® Hip Replacement
In 2008, Zimmer Holdings, the largest producer of orthopedic devices in the United States, suspended sales of its Durom® Cup hip replacement after it was discovered that the product had a high rate of failure. Our California attorneys can help you during your Zimmer Durom® lawsuit.
Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacement
Zimmer Holdings also recalled 65,000 NexGen knee replacement components due to their susceptibility to loosen after only minimal use. With proven representation, injured patients may be able to recover compensation for their pain and suffering and any additional corrective surgeries they were forced to endure.
A Practice Dedicated to Medical Device Injury Cases
Drawing from decades of experience spent litigating corporate liability cases, our California attorneys have been able to establish a proven and successful practice representing victims injured by defective medical devices and implants. Our lawyers have also been appointed to state and national leadership positions in many of the nation's most significant medical device injury cases. Our ability to successfully resolve cases against powerful corporations has also been demonstrated in a recent $4.2 million settlement for a client injured by a dietary supplement. The settlement is believed to be one of the largest to date involving the dietary supplement industry.
