Over 30 Years Protecting the Injured
Peoria Defective Medical Device Lawyer
Handling All Types of Complex Pharmaceutical Product Liability Cases
Every surgical procedure has some level of risk. Procedures that involve the implementation of medical devices can carry a higher level of risk because of the patient's health or because surgery is inherently dangerous. However, sometimes a negative outcome is the result of a faulty medical device. Our firm accepts cases where there has been an injury caused by defective medical devices, such as failed hip, knee and joint implants, transvaginal mesh failures, failed pain pumps, and more. With more than 25 years of experience, our Peoria defective medical device attorney is adept at navigating the complexities of this particular area of law. We understand that every situation is unique, which is why we take the time to listen to our clients’ stories and provide them with the uncompromising advocacy they need.

Common Recalled Medical Devices
Product recalls are often a good indication that a medical device was faulty from the start. In many cases, recalled medical devices cause extensive, long-lasting harm and are typically not recalled until many victims have suffered serious injuries.
Some of the most common recalled or defective medical devices include:
- Orthopedic devices, including knee replacements and metal-on-metal hip replacements
- Transvaginal mesh
- Intrauterine devices (IUDs)
- Birth control rings
- Infusion pumps
- Ventricular assist systems
- Humidifiers used with patients with tracheotomies
- MRI systems with magnet rundown units
- Suctioning endotracheal tubes
- Blood glucose test strips
- Vascular stents (IVC filters)
Even if the defective medical device or equipment that harmed you or your loved one is not on this list or was never recalled, there may be cause for legal action. An investigation will help determine where negligence lies, as well as your opportunities for pursuing compensation.

As in defective drug cases, there are many potential negligent parties in a given defective medical device case, including the manufacturer or vendor, a medical professional, a hospital, or another responsible party.
