Defective Medical Device Lawyers in St. Louis, Missouri
At The Gogel Law Firm, our St. Louis medical malpractice attorney knows a wide range of equipment is used to diagnose and treat patients throughout the U.S., commonly referred to as medical devices. From pacemakers and defibrillators to joint replacement and birth control devices, these medical mechanisms are designed to replace body parts and treat or prevent disease.
Unfortunately, once implanted into the body, these medical devices can do more harm than good, leaving users more injured than they were before their use.
When medical device companies fail to properly test their products, or withhold information about their side effects or potential harm, it can have devastating repercussions. If you or someone you love has been injured or lost their life because of the use of a medical device, our Missouri medical device injury attorneys can help you hold the manufacturer liable for your damages.
