We Will Review Any Type of Defective Medical Device Case
At Tosi Law LLP, our defective medical device lawsuit lawyers understand how frustrating it can be to suffer pain and injuries because of a medical device meant to treat another condition or improve patient outcomes. Unfortunately, though, defective medical devices make it to market every year — and many remain on the market despite thousands of complaints of injuries and preventable harm.
A member of our team will review your case, explain your rights, and help you understand your legal options. We will evaluate any defective medical device case. Some we are currently reviewing include:
Surgeons use surgical staples to close wounds and seal internal tissue. Stapler misfiring, failure to fire, and difficulty firing can cause serious injury to patients undergoing surgery. In a letter to healthcare providers, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed that it has received more than 41,000 medical device reports related to surgical staplers and staples for internal use between January 2011 and March 2018, including 366 deaths and thousands of serious injuries.
Essure was a birth control device implanted into the woman's fallopian tubes. While it was supposed to permanently block these tubes and prevent pregnancy, many women report severe pain, internal bleeding, and damage to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and other internal organs. Bayer stopped selling and distributing these devices in December 2018.
Surgeons commonly use hernia mesh in the surgical repair of a hernia. However, some people report that this mesh can shrink, migrate, and harden. Some people claim problems with their implanted hernia mesh include increased risk of infection, bowel obstruction, damage to other organs, adhesions, chronic pain, and the need for revision surgery.
Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are tiny filters placed in the IVC to prevent blood clots from reaching the heart and lungs. These filters are most common after surgery or for short-term use. When left in the body for more than a few weeks, the risk of problems increase. Patients and their doctors report broken parts from IVC filters migrating to the heart or lungs, penetrating vein walls, or causing other serious concerns.
Let Tosi Law LLP Evaluate Your Case Against a Defective Medical Device Manufacturer
When a company designs a medical device, they must get approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market it. This generally requires some safety testing, although this is not always adequate. At the same time, some receive approval without going through the testing and review process because of similarities to products already on the market.
If you suffered injuries, pain and suffering, or other negative health effects and a defective medical device may be to blame, Tosi Law LLP wants to review your case and help you understand your legal options. A defective medical device lawsuit lawyer may be able to file a civil suit on your behalf, join in a class action suit, or pursue multidistrict litigation. Let us go to work for you today. Call 888-312-2518 to get started with your complimentary case review.
You can count on us to build a strong case to prove how the medical device affected you and your family. We will gather evidence that includes:
- Your relevant medical records
- Testimony from medical expert witnesses
- Information about your prognosis and ongoing and future care
- Documentation of any related expenses and losses
We will also identify other similar cases, and check to see if there is a mass tort already in progress. Joining multidistrict litigation or another type of mass tort can greatly reduce the cost of taking on a large medical device manufacturer.

- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Wrongful death damages, if your loved one passed away because of a defective medical device
State Law May Limit How Long You Have to Hold the Device Manufacturer Liable
Each state sets its own deadlines for how long a defective medical device victim has to hold the designer, manufacturer, or distributor liable. When we review your case, we can identify the best jurisdiction for your case and explain the statute of limitations that applies. If we miss this deadline, the courts may refuse to hear our case. Reach out to us as early as possible to ensure this does not happen to you.
