Defective Medical Device Lawyers in Northwest Florida
Serving You from Panama City, Panama City Beach, Marianna, & Tallahassee
Manufacturers are responsible for making products that are safe for their intended use. This principle is even more critical when the product is an implantable medical device that can have long-term effects on the human body.
Extensive testing must be carried out in the manufacturer’s development lab by independent testing services and in clinical trials. When testing is successful, the device must be approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.
However, medical device manufacturers sometimes fail to identify design, materials, components, and assembly defects. Other times, they are so eager to bring the product to market that they overlook problematic aspects of the development. The real test of a medical device comes when it is implanted into a living human being, which can be too late if the device has not been thoroughly vetted throughout the entire process.
Such products can lead to injury and even death for unsuspecting patients whose lives are jeopardized.
At Perry & Young, we vigorously represent people who have suffered harm from defective medical devices, drugs, and other medical products. With offices in Panama City, Panama City Beach, Marianna, and Tallahassee, our lawyers handle cases for clients across Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
