Connecticut Defective Medical Device Litigation

Contact an experienced product liability attorney at Adelman Hirsch & Connors LLP in Bridgeport, Danbury or Middletown if you or a family member has been severely injured or killed by the failure of a medical product or device. We litigate personal injury and wrongful death claims related to defective medical devices in both state and federal court. Our experience with the complex jurisdictional, technical, and liability questions raised by these cases can help you maximize your financial recovery for the injuries caused by the malfunctioning product.

Among the medical devices that we are familiar with are the following:

  • Artificial joints
  • Stents for arteries, veins, or ducts
  • Pacemakers
  • Medical screws
  • Helical baskets for kidney stones
  • Dialysis machines

Many medical device cases present complicated issues concerning state or federal jurisdiction, due to the fact that bringing such products to market involves a complex approval process through the federal Food and Drug Administration. If the case is initially brought in Connecticut Superior Court, the defendant manufacturer or distributor might remove it to U.S. District Court. With decades of trial experience in both the state and federal systems, our attorneys can achieve favorable results for our clients in either forum.

Other cases involve disputes concerning the assignment of fault for the patient's injuries or death—was the problem the result of a malfunctioning device, or the fault of the physician who inserted or prescribed it? In those cases, our dual familiarity with product liability issues and the proof of medical malpractice claims gives our clients a distinct advantage.
