Victims of Defective Medical Devices Have Legal Options

Serving all of the Upstate New York Region

The Hacker Murphy law firm regularly helps people who have been injured by defective or dangerous products. Despite federal laws and regulations designed to protect consumers, each year thousands of Americans are severely injured or killed as a result of dangerous medical products.

While any product may cause an injury, one specific product responsible for a large number of consumer injuries continues to be defective medical devices. Each year brings news of another medical product recall following news that a popular medical device has injured consumers or poses an unacceptable risk of danger to consumers. One well-known example is the FDA product recall for DePuy hip replacement devices.

If you or a family member have been injured by a dangerous or defective medical device, contact the experienced product liability lawyers at Hacker Murphy today.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
