A defective medical device lawyer could help you when you’ve been the victim of a faulty product. Although these devices have had positive effects on many people, some devices can still cause harm. For instance, many of these products can be fast-tracked to the market if they’re similar enough to an older device. However, this can have some serious consequences on the health of those using them.
A case we dealt with in the past involved metal hip implants. Although they were similar to past implants, the company failed to realize that the product would cause friction. This led to many people getting a form of heavy metal poisoning from metal shards rubbing off the device. With the help of a defective medical device lawyer, these patients were able to file a lawsuit together in what is called a mass tort.
When you’ve decided to take your case to court you may want to consider your options when talking to a defective medical device lawyer. First, you must decide if you want to join a mass tort or file individually. There are pros and cons for both. If you file by yourself you will be going against a pharmaceutical company. This can be expensive to pursue and be harder to prove against a team of lawyers. Should you decide to join a mass tort you will not receive as much compensation but your odds of winning are greatly increased.
Next, you should consider looking for a free consultation. Most lawyers will offer a consultation to help you figure out your options. Finally, if you decide to join a mass tort for your case, your lawyer will direct you on how to join and will guide you to the firm that is attempting one.
In a class action, all of the plaintiffs suffered similar damage from the same source. Mass tort suits are aggregations of a large group of plaintiffs making similar claims. Read more here.

In many cases, you may be able to recover for any damages you have sustained, including your medical expenses, lost income, loss of quality of life, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. Read more about defective retail products here.

I am glad I chose DGMS for my personal injury case ! Sometimes I would call for update’s multiple times and yet they were patient and understanding. Crystal has done a phenomenal job thus far. Mr. Dominic Z. has done an awesome job as well with follow-up emails and ensuring we get the best results. I look forward to the end result as they are determined to get the best.
My attorney was/is Dominic Zambelli and from the very start, my experience with him was amazing. He explained what I needed to do for the case, the timeline, and put my mind at ease immediately. Fast forward six months, my case is settled and I am very happy with the result. If you are ever, and I mean EVER, looking for an honest, transparent, and diligent lawyer, call DGM&S and ask for Dominic. You will not be disappointed.
After an accident, and being inundated with offers from out-of-town lawyers, I called DGMS, and I am glad I did. They took over and I received a maximum payout very quickly after all the medical was done. Especially, Amy K. who always took my calls, and answered all my questions promptly. Thanks Amy K.
