The manufacturing of medical devices and consumer products is big business. For the most part, the medical devices help to save peoples lives and promote longer healthier lives and the manufacturing of consumer products (as we all know) improve everybody's quality of life to some degree.
Regrettably however, there are countless numbers of deaths and serious injuries reported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) every year regarding these same products.
The FDA is charged with protecting patients of drugs and medical devices and the CPSC is charged with protecting the public at large from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products. Sadly, both of these government agencies are underfunded and overwhelmed with adverse events and injury reports. The number of medical device and consumer product recalls and warnings issued each and every year in the United States is simply astounding.

Most of the deaths and injuries reported to both the FDA and CPSC are caused by defective or unsafe products. If the agency receives enough reports regarding the same product, they will generally launch a formal investigation into the safety or efficacy of these products. Unfortunately, there are a large number of deaths and injuries caused by defective medical devices and consumer products that go unreported.
At Schmidt & Clark, LLP, we know this to be true because we are contacted on a daily basis by people just like you who are looking for legal representation and information regarding a defective medical device or consumer product.
The medical device manufacturers and consumer product manufacturers have a responsibility to the American people to provide products that are safe and free of manufacturing defects and errors. In addition, these companies need to thoroughly warn consumers when their products have the potential to cause deaths or injuries.
