Companies do not like to recall their products, especially medical devices. By recalling medical devices, companies are admitting that their product causes health problems. This can lead to lawsuits and large payouts to injured parties. In order to avoid this, companies can take sneaky tactics like lying and denying any knowledge of negative side effects. They know that Georgia medical device lawyers will hold them responsible for any injuries that a recalled device caused. Essentially, they are putting innocent people at risk in order to save the business some money. Take for example a recent case against the Johnson and Johnson company call Depuy. Depuy had to recall 93,000 hip implant devices in 2010 because they were causing side effects like pain and fiber ingrowths.
Evidence was revealed by a medical device defect lawyer in a trial for a 65 year old man who suffered with complications from the device for 3 years before finally having it removed. His lawyers revealed internal company emails from 2008 and on describing how patients with the implant were suffering and many surgeons were no longer using the implant because of this. It also suggested that the product be recalled. The email chain shows that the makers were aware of the side effects but chose to keep the product on the market for several years anyway putting all of the patients in harm's way. Not should the 65 year old plaintiff be awarded money for his medical fees and surgeries, but he should also be awarded money for his excessive pain and suffering and punitive damages to punish the company for their terrible decisions. If you have been a victim of side effects from a medical device or have had to undergo surgery to remove and replace a medical device, you could be entitled to compensation.
