We have helped victims who have suffered serious personal injuries, including paralysis, brain and spinal cord injuries, head trauma and other catastrophic injury.

As consumers, we are exposed to danger every day when we get into our car, fly in an airplane, go swimming, use a power tool or simply walk across the street. We accept a certain level of risk and know it is unavoidable in our daily life. However, often that level of risk is greatly exacerbated by the failure of companies to protect the safety of people using their products.

Indiana Medical Device Replacements & Recalls

Medical devices save thousands of lives each year; many, many more lives are improved through the use of equipment which eases pain, enhances mobility or improves surgical outcomes. Unfortunately, many thousands are injured when something goes wrong in the design, manufacture or implantation of defective medical devices. Medical device manufacturers have a responsibility, imposed both by law and by ethics, to make products which are safe and which will provide the intended benefit.

Medical Device Recalls

Companies Can Fail to Protect the Very Customers Their Business Depends on

Most consumers are surprised to learn of the frequent and extreme injuries caused by products we use on a daily basis. Products we assume are safe, properly engineered, and meticulously constructed too often fail and leave lives damaged, sometimes beyond repair.

Our lawyers have successfully taken on the manufacturers and sellers of vehicles, power tools, medical devices and appliances, recreational equipment and more. See: Client Results & Case Studies

What Makes Our Indiana Product Attorneys Different?

Lives can be altered in a millisecond when an accident happens. Serious injuries can quickly leave the victim drowning under the pressure of unpaid medical bills, with the uncertain future of lost income and disability. As devastating as these circumstances are to families, we have also been at the side of families who have lost a mother, father or child to catastrophic events – the greatest loss.

One consideration that sets us apart is our team approach to litigating your claim. We are committed to bringing together the most qualified experts available (irrespective of cost) to uncover what happened. Your experts will come from around the world if necessary. Consumer product claims can be complex, and the proficiency of your experts is crucial in both the investigation and litigation phases of your claim.

Getting the Right Experts on Your Side Is Critical

The opponents in product liability cases are often huge corporations with large amounts of money set aside to fight these claims. These companies have resources, and they are willing to use them to protect their bottom lines and their reputations. We have resources, too.

When you hire our attorneys, you are enlisting the help necessary to take on large corporations and insurance companies. We offer free consultations, and there is no fee for any of our work if we don’t win your case. Contact us at 317-825-5200.
