Defective Medical Device Lawyers

If you or a loved one is harmed by a medical device, it is important to hire a lawyer who understands the technical and engineering complexities of medical devices.

Have you needlessly suffered because of malfunctioning medical device ?

We’ve all heard the promises from your doctor. A better quality of life with a simple operation. Nobody can be faulted for wanting the day to be a bit brighter, free from the constant pain of your ailments. However, those promises of better days ahead all too often turn into nightmares full of chronic pain and in the worst cases, even death.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with ensuring the safety of medical devices before they become available to individuals. However, FDA approval often does not guarantee the basic safety of these devices. If you or a loved one is harmed by a medical device, it is important to hire a lawyer in Los Angeles who understands the technical and engineering complexities of medical devices.

The defective medical device lawyers at Karns & Karns Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys have an extensive understanding of how medical devices are manufactured and used, and the circumstances under which they fail. Defective medical devices are usually the result of rushing a new product to market without carefully designing and thoroughly testing the product. Manufacturers of medical devices must be held accountable for defective and unsafe medical devices that harm individuals.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Karns & Karns Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys, personal injury is all we do. We handle a wide range of injury cases, including all types of motor vehicle accidents. For example, we represent victims of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and rideshare accidents. We also handle wrongful death, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, dangerous and defective products, construction accidents, and many more injury cases.

"Damages" is the legal term for what you have lost in the accident. Damages generally fall into two main categories, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include monetary or quantifiable losses you have incurred, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damages. Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify because they are non-monetary losses. Examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Each state has its own time limit for filing a personal injury claim. This time limit is called the statute of limitations. In California, Nevada, and Texas, most personal injury claims will fall under a two-year statute of limitations. That means you have two years from the date of the injury or death to file a lawsuit. However, there are certain exceptions to these deadlines. Consider discussing your unique situation with an experienced personal injury attorney from our firm. We can help you understand how the statute of limitations in your state may affect your potential claim.

Most personal injury lawyers, like us, work on a contingency fee basis. Working on contingency means that you pay nothing upfront for legal representation. Instead, you only pay if you win your case through a settlement or verdict. You and your lawyer will agree to an amount, usually a percentage. If your case succeeds, that amount will be deducted from the verdict or settlement. If your case is not successful, then you owe the lawyer nothing.
