Defective Medical Products Lawyers in North Carolina
Helping You Through Life's Most Difficult Moments
Medical devices can provide cutting-edge treatment for serious conditions. Hip implants, blood clot filters, surgical mesh, and other devices can bring patients considerable relief and can save lives. When they have inherent design or manufacturing defects, however, they may do more harm than good. Crumley Roberts is committed to helping patients and families who have been adversely affected by defective medical devices. As injury attorneys, our mission is to stand up for our clients and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.

We can investigate your claim in order to determine not only the full extent of your injuries and their current and future impact on your life but to determine how the defective device caused you harm.

Defective Medical Device FAQ
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.
If you don’t see the answer to your question below, we invite you to contact Crumley Roberts to speak with one of our caring and knowledgeable staff members.
What types of defective medical devices are you currently investigating?
We are currently investigating cases involving hernia mesh, transvaginal mesh, DePuy hip implants, Stryker® hip implants, Riata™ defibrillator leads, IVC filters, morcellator cancer, and more. We welcome you to call regarding any type of medical product.
After an injury, how much time do I have to file a medical device defect lawsuit?
The statute of limitations varies by state. For example, in North Carolina, the statute of limitations for product liability lawsuits is three years. This means that from the date of your injury or the date that you reasonably should have known about your injury, you have three years to file a lawsuit. For wrongful death actions involving defective medical devices, the statute of limitations is two years. It is also important to consider that your lawsuit must be filed within 12 years of the date of the product’s manufacture or sale.
What is my claim worth?
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.
Do I have a viable case?
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.
