Defective Medical Device FAQ
Crumley Roberts Is Here to Answer Your Questions
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.

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.
How long after an injury 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 you have three years from the date of your injury or the date that you reasonably should have known about your injury 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 from 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, taking into account 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.
