Why Do You Need a Defective Medical Device Lawyer?
Going up against a medical device manufacturer or seller can be hard without an attorney. The manufacturer’s insurance company may try to offer an extremely low settlement, or deny your claim altogether. Once you approach insurance settlement negotiations with legal representation, however, an insurer is more likely to take your case seriously. Hiring a lawyer shows you won’t be taken advantage of and that you’ll fight for fair compensation through all available outlets.
The Impact of Defective Medical Devices
Past lawsuits regarding defective medical devices have alleged that they worsened patients’ prognoses, perforated veins and organs, shortened lifespans, caused serious personal injuries, and led to wrongful death. Often, patients rely on medical devices for survival. A defective product cannot carry out the mission for which manufacturers designed it. This can lead to major injuries, illnesses, and deaths.
After a defective medical product injures you or a loved one, explore your right to file a product liability case in the state of New Mexico. State law holds product manufacturers strictly liable for injuries or deaths their defective items cause consumers. This means you won’t have to prove negligence to receive a settlement or verdict. In some cases, however, you may have to show evidence of the manufacturer’s negligence in causing your injuries.
Damages You Can Recover
Working with one of our lawyers in a defective medical device case could help you obtain fair compensation for your related damages. Damages you may be able to recover include past and future lost earnings, medical bills, pain and suffering, and wrongful death damages. Although we can settle most cases before trial, we can go to court if that will garner better results for you and your family.
