MEDICAL DEVICES AND IMPLANTS
When you purchase a product, such as denture cream, a lawn mower, toaster, an ATV including Yamaha's Rhino, you most likely don't expect the item to cause injuries. Consumers generally trust manufacturers and retailers to sell products that are safe and reliable. Unfortunately, companies sometimes place profit before safety, spending more on marketing than on safety testing.
At the Odom Law Firm, in Fayetteville, Arkansas, we represent individuals who have been injured by defective products. We strive to not only obtain fair compensation for clients like you, but also to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions. Working together, we can hold companies to a high standard of safety.
No one should be put at risk due to a defective product. Contact our product liability attorneys to start building your case.
THE ROLE OF THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION
As skilled attorneys, we are knowledgeable about the process of approving a medical device or implant. A division of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) is responsible for testing and approving medical devices.
If the CDRH finds a medical device to be defective, it will not be approved. In some cases, the FDA will issue a recall or request a manufacturer recall.
Recently, several medical devices have received a lot of attention in the medical and legal communities due to their defects, including DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement hardware and Zimmer Hip and Knee Replacement hardware.
The Odom Law Firm is committed to holding negligent manufacturers accountable for the harmful products they produce. We are dedicated to arriving at fair compensation for our injured clients through negotiation and litigation.
If you or someone you love was injured due to a medical device or implant, we can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Contact us online or call our office locally at 479-935-8425 or toll free at 866-935-2070 to schedule a free initial consultation.
