Compensation for malpractice in defective medical devices National lawsuit nets $2.4 billion dollar settlement amount

Can I sue for being given a faulty medical device?

If the defective device caused you harm, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the device for the damages it caused. A personal injury attorney can help maximize your medical product liability case. Warshafksy won a $2.4 billion dollar settlement for a product liability case when defective jaw implants were being used to treat patients with TMJ.

Medical liability lawyers persuade FDA to remove TMJ jaw implants from market

The Methodist Hospital in Houston contributed to the development of Proplast jaw implant devices designed to treat TMJ (also called TMD). Half a million patients a year are treated for TMJ, while nearly 10% were affected by this device. Common facial pain and headaches were known to increase, in some cases permanently.

Despite the hospital being in Texas, over 100 Wisconsin residents were harmed by the manufactured implants. For decades, the producers of these prosthesis parts continued to profit, unscathed by endangering patients who were paying for professional help. Warshafsky Law Firm immediately filed a class-action suit, proving the devices were detrimental once implanted.

Over 40,000 victims of medical malpractice became eligible to file for a share of the achieved settlement. Due to the percentage of applicants, average settlements ranged as high as $60,000 per victim. Our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys, led by Ted Warshafsky, created another successful Society Changing Judgment.

Along with harmful TMJ jaw implants, Warshafsky has fought against the use of dangerous prosthetic implants and other medical devices. From penile implant lawsuits to defective dental implant lawsuits and negligent use of birthing device lawsuits, our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys have defended many victims of medical malpractice, bringing about noteworthy injury cases and Society Changing Judgements.

When people choose their Wisconsin personal injury lawyer based on the endorsement of a football player or actor, they risk choosing an attorney who has never won more money in a courtroom. Settlement mills forward your paperwork and take a cut of your damages. Hundreds of times we have prepared cases like yours beyond the brink of trial. Facing unlimited liability AND an expensive jury trial, insurance companies fess up what your case is worth. They HATE when you choose Warshafsky.
