When a patient is injured through use of a medical device, a critical question is, “Who is responsible?” Is it a medical malpractice case, a product liability case or some combination? Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., has ample experience reviewing medical malpractice claims as well as product liability claims. We are prepared to investigate your potential injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit regarding harm caused by a defective:
- Breast Implant
- Hip Replacement
- Knee Replacement
We may ask the question, “Did your doctor know — or should he/she have known — that the medical device would cause problems for this patient?” If the answer is yes, then there may be an injury claim against that health care provider.
In other cases, a doctor may have had no reason to suspect that a medical device was defective — or counter-indicated for that patient. Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., has the knowledge as well as the financial resources to dig into the causes of a medical-related injury such as a defective medical device claim. We have access to the engineers and other specialists who can help determine whether a product was suitable for a particular patient — or suitable to be on the market at all. Device manufacturers may be the truly liable party in a defective medical device case.
