Do You Have Questions About a Defective Medical Device Claim?

Three of the most frequent questions we receive about filing an injury claim for a medical device includes:

How much do you charge?

We understand that you are probably very concerned about how you are going to pay an attorney to represent you. You need an attorney to fight the large medical device company responsible for the defective machine; however, money may be very tight because you are out of work because of your injury. Our attorneys accept most cases on a contingency fee basis. We will not charge any attorney fees up front. In other words, you will not pay any attorney fees until and unless we recover money for your claim. Our law firm wants you to have access to experienced, dedicated attorneys without worrying about how you can afford legal representation.

Will I need to file a lawsuit to receive money for my injuries?

Defective medical claims are different from other types of personal injury claims. In many cases, numerous lawsuits have already been filed against the device’s manufacturer and other liable parties. You might be able to file a claim or join the current lawsuit without filing a new lawsuit.  However, it is difficult to know the answer to this question until we learn more about your situation. Our lawyers take the course of action that gives you the best chance of recovering the most money for your claim. In some cases, that may involve filing a lawsuit.

How much money can I receive for my claim?

The amount of compensation you are entitled to receive depends on several factors, including the type of injury, the length of your recovery, the severity of the injury, the amount of financial damages, and whether you suffered a permanent disability. In addition, court decisions and state/federal laws impact the amount you can receive for an injury claim related to a defective medical device. Our lawyers pursue each course of action available to you to increase the chance you recover full compensation for your claim. We also pursue each party that could have any potential liability for your injury because this also increases the chance you receive full compensation for all damages.
