The assumption is that medical devices are properly designed, manufactured, and utilized in ways that are both safe and helpful. Unfortunately, this assumption can prove incorrect. Hundreds of people are harmed every year by defective medical devices. At Crumley Roberts, we are dedicated to helping those injured by these dangerous products. One way we do this is by offering free consultations to provide guidance to those who may qualify for legal representation in this area. Another way is by providing answers to common questions people have about medical device defects.

Q:What types of defective medical devices are you currently investigating?
A:We are currently investigating cases involving the following: Hernia mesh, Transvaginal mesh, DePuy hip implants, Stryker® hip implants, and IVC filters.. We welcome you to call regarding any type of medical product.
Q:After an injury, how much time do I have to file a medical device defect lawsuit?
A:The statute of limitations varies by state. In many states, the statute of limitations is about 2 years. This means that from the date of your injury or the date that you reasonably should have known about your injury, you have two years to file a lawsuit. It is also important to consider that your lawsuit must typically be filed within 12 years of the date of the product’s manufacture or sale. Our firm handles cases nationwide, so when you explain the circumstances of your case, we can use the state-specific regulations to determine your filing deadline and create a solid legal strategy in your favor.
Q:What is my claim worth?
A:Every case is different. Assessing the value of your claim will require a complete investigation into the injury or loss you have experienced, and allowing for medical bills, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and more. We recommend talking to an attorney about your specific case to get a better idea of its potential value.
Q:Do I have a viable case?
A:The best way to determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit involving a defective medical device is to review it with an attorney. At Crumley Roberts, we are here to answer your questions and review your case to decide whether you have a viable lawsuit. We will work closely with you to help make sure your needs are addressed and your interests placed first so you can seek a positive result.
