Medical Device Manufacturers
Patients and people in South Carolina rely on advanced medical devices for their well-being and health. Such products and devices are intended to correct health problems that inhibit a person’s ability to enjoy life. Advanced pharmaceutical products and medical devices have revolutionized the medical field, but too frequently patients suffer debilitating harm caused by these medical devices and pharmaceutical products because they are defective. It is no secret that the federal agency designed to oversee the medical device and pharmaceutical industries–the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)–and to protect the public from dangerous products, is overly cozy with the very same industry over which it is supposed to keep watch. Drugs and products are being rushed to the marketplace, without adequate analysis, and the public frequenlty suffers the consequences of lax screening and standard enforcement.
A growing number of patients experience severe complications with devices such as joint replacements, especially hip and knee replacements, as well as transvaginal mesh. South Carolinians used these products and devices because they wanted a better life, but too often these South Carolinians were simply not aware of serious risks inherent in these devices and the procedures employed to implant them.
Companies such as DePuy Orthopaedics, Johnson & Johnson, Zimmer Holdings Inc., and Stryker Corp. have rushed advanced devices to the market, while research on the long term effects of these devices and procedures lagged significantly behind. Not enough legwork had been done to understand the safety concerns that always goes along with joint replacement and implant technology.
The above mentioned device manufacturers should be held responsible for painful, and frequently life-changing effects of their devices. South Carolinians implanted with poorly-tested devices can utilize Traywick & Traywick to file lawsuits in order to recover for their damages against DePuy, Zimmer, Stryker, and other companies that negligently manufactured, marketed and designed medical devices. South Carolinians can choose to impose upon the manufacturers the responsibility to back up their wares and devices and to provide compensation when things go wrong – to ensure that South Carolina consumers are not left holding the bag when medical devices and products harm consumers. South Carolina patients and consumers engage Traywick Law Offices attorneys to demand just compensation – for disfigurement, pain, suffering and the costs of follow on surgery to repair the damage done by the defective product.
