We’ve Recovered Over $1 Billion for Injured Clients
Year after year, innovations and improvements in the medical community continue to push the boundaries of what we once thought was possible. Today, state-of-the-art medical devices offer advanced care to patients suffering from a wide range of conditions.
Unfortunately, these devices are not immune to defects. Additionally, some manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies avoid claiming responsibility for inherent flaws in their products, leaving dangerous medical devices on the market and putting more lives at risk. Even recalled products can remain on shelves to be purchased by unknowing patients.
If you or someone you love has been injured or impacted by a defective medical device in Washington DC, Maryland, or Virginia, consult with Ashcraft & Gerel as soon as possible. We can investigate your claim and determine the best path forward to pursue justice.
Thoroughly Investigating Defective Medical Device Claims
Every day, Americans are left suffering the consequences of a large manufacturer or powerful corporation’s blatant negligence. Medical devices that should help people heal are leaving too many people hurting.
Common examples of defective medical devices include:
- Pacemakers that stopped or failed to maintain the patient’s heart rhythm
- Malfunctioning pain pumps and insulin pumps
- Leaking or broken heart valve implants
- Unsterilized gynecological devices
- Defective breast implants
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we have experience handling claims against people hurt by Medtronic insulin pump and infusion sets, and power morcellators.
File a Claim for Damages
If manufacturers and retailers don’t want to claim responsibility for their shortcomings and the harm they cause innocent patients, our attorneys will fight to hold them accountable.
By filing a defective medical device claim, you may be able to recover damages for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death, if the product led to your loved one’s death
On top of the financial compensation you receive, you are also helping protect others from the harms of these defective devices. If we can prove negligence, we can help pull harmful products from shelves and prevent others from suffering the same pain.
Ashcraft & Gerel can meet you at home, in the hospital, or at one of our many office locations in Washington D.C., Silver Spring, Baltimore, Landover, Rockville, Fairfax, and Manassas.
