Defective Medical Device Lawyers
Whether it’s a medical device implanted in your body or an item you buy from a store, you expect all products you purchase to be tested for safety and reliability. But some products may be unsafe and have been linked to health complications, including serious illnesses, injuries, and even death.
If you or someone you love was injured by a consumer product or defective medical device, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the product manufacturer for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, it’s our goal to stand up for the rights of innocent victims against big companies and their legal teams.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently released warnings for several medical products known to cause injuries and serious side effects. These products include:
- Essure® Birth Control
The FDA announced that Bayer must conduct a new mandatory clinical study to evaluate the risks Essure may pose to patients after reports of painful internal injuries requiring hysterectomies and abdominal surgeries.
- Mirena® IUD
Mirena® is a hormonal intrauterine device that’s placed into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. The device is linked to serious side effects, including internal bleeding and uterine perforation.
- Transvaginal Mesh
Women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence may require the surgical insertion of transvaginal mesh to hold their organs in place. This device is linked to several complications, such as pain, infection, scarring, and more.
Product Liability Cases We Handle
We handle several other types of product liability cases, including:
- Defective Medical Products
Doctors prescribe and use a variety of medical products to help patients get better. But many of these products have been to found to cause health problems and side effects.
- Defective Consumer Products
You expect the items you buy for your home or for medical use to be safe. But product manufacturers often don’t fully test their items. Victims of table saw injuries or improper colon cleansing procedures can become permanently injured or disabled.
