Defective Implants and Prosthetics

Countless medical device manufacturers spend millions of dollars annually to develop, sell and profit from implantable orthopedic devices, trauma products and technologies for hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists, elbows and the spine. 

From time-to-time, products are rushed to the market and implanted into patients before manufacturers have time to run sufficient tests to determine the safety and efficacy of the product.  When those products fail, they are often recalled by the manufacturer to prevent harm (or further harm) to the public.  Recent medical device recalls affecting patients in New York, and around the county include :
Commonly, products are recalled after they undergo investigation by the FDA because of a higher than expected number of adverse incidents (i.e., bad outcomes).  Presently, a number of products are under regulatory review:
  • Zimmer Durom Cup
  • Biomet M2A-Magnum
  • Corin Cormet
  • Wright Medical Conserve
If you received a defective implant or prosthetic and it has caused harm, you may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.  The trial lawyers at Bottar Law, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict product liability cases concerning defective implants and prosthetics.
