When a medical device fails or is recalled because it is defective, people often wonder whether the doctor who recommended it knew it was unsafe or why the manufacturer continued to sell the defective product. All too often, manufacturers do know (or should know) their products are dangerous long before they are taken off the shelf. Sometimes, doctors also recommend devices for the wrong application, or without realizing they are dangerous.
At Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, we are not afraid to take on companies that sell dangerous products to the public. We have experience in these cases and know how to handle them in the way that is best for the client, whether that is as part of a class action or as an individual claim. We also know how to handle complicated product cases where there is also a potential claim of negligence against one or more healthcare providers.
When a medical device is recalled, patients may face additional surgery to remove implanted devices. It is helpful to talk to a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to gauge the full extent of potential damages.

There is no charge for us to review your potential claim. If we take your case, we do so on a contingency basis, meaning that you don’t pay our fees unless we successfully resolve the claim in your favor. Contact us for a free, confidential case review or call us at (800) 809-2234.
How SGB helps.
SGB attorneys have deep experience with and knowledge of product liability cases. In recall cases, the defendants are often huge multinational companies. We have taken on these giants—and won—in a variety of claims. We investigate our cases thoroughly and work with nationally recognized experts. And our opponents know we have the resources to take a case to trial if settling is not in the best interest of our clients. In some recall cases, it is hard to know whether a problem you’re having is related to the defective medical device.
