We Can Help You Get the Money You Need After a Defective Medical Device Injury
Taking on a medical device company such as Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, or Bard can be exceptionally difficult. These manufacturers have large, experienced legal teams and a seemingly bottomless pool of resources. However, you do not need to handle this process on your own.
Our defective medical devices team can help you determine if you have a case and help you navigate the process, recovering the compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses. To do so, we will handle the following:
Establish Liability in an Albuquerque Dangerous Medical Device Case
New Mexico’s product liability laws allow us to hold the designer or manufacturer of a defective medical device liable for the injuries you suffered without having to show exactly how it acted negligently. This is known as strict liability.
Take Bard’s IVC filters as an example. To recover compensation for injuries you suffered from their use, we only have to prove:
- The manufacturer made the device
- You used the device
- It was defective
- You suffered injuries
Investigate Your Defective Device Case in Albuquerque
We thoroughly investigate every claim we handle, building a strong case against the liable party and using the evidence we uncover to fight for the full compensation our clients deserve. Investigating a defective product can require discussing your case with expert witnesses, in addition to collecting and analyzing other evidence.
We may enlist the help of any of the following for help with your case:
- Product testing experts
- Industry and manufacturing experts
- Medical experts
We will also need to document your full range of damages by collecting all bills, receipts, and other paperwork related to your expenses and losses.
Navigating the Insurance Claims Process or Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit
After we establish liability and can show how the defective medical device caused your damages, we will prepare our case. Usually, we then approach the responsible manufacturer and demand a full payout. This may allow us to negotiate a fair settlement agreement based on the case we present for compensation.
If the manufacturer refuses a fair settlement, we will file a product liability lawsuit and take it to court. We are not afraid to take on any corporation and will fight to get our clients the payout we believe they deserve.
Meet All Deadlines
Under New Mexico law, you have three years to file suit to recover compensation. We will file all necessary paperwork and suits within that three-year period to ensure you retain the right to sue. We will also research any circumstances that may toll (i.e., pause) this statute.
