When you need to have a medical procedure done, you rely on the skill and experience of your doctor to complete the procedure safely and efficiently.

Product Liability Counsel in Oak Forest and Homer Glen
The experienced product liability attorney at our firm understands that medical device manufacturers do not develop and market products with the intention of harming patients. Unfortunately, however, time constraints and economic factors often push a manufacturer to rush a device to market before it has been thoroughly tested or researched. Despite strict regulations by government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), many poorly designed and improperly manufactured products reach the marketplace each year.
In most cases, it takes a number of reports of injuries or harmful effects before recalls are issued and improvements are made. Sometimes, a dangerous device may injure hundreds or thousands of victims before any real action is taken to address the problem.
Common dangerous or defective medical products include:
- Insulin pumps and other medication delivery systems;
- Tools that transmit infections because they cannot be properly cleaned and sterilized;
- Hip, knee, and other joint replacement devices;
- Implanted products such as transvaginal mesh and heart valve implants; and
- Breast implants or other products that can damage the immune system.
Dangerous Products or Improper Use?
If you or a loved one has been injured by a medical device that you believe is defective or dangerous, Attorney Allen N. Schwartz is prepared to help. He understands that there are many factors that could affect the direction of your case. The product could have been poorly designed or manufactured, or it could have lacked proper instructions and warnings. Additionally, the doctor or medical professional who used the product may have used it incorrectly or in a way that was not intended by the manufacturer.
Mr. Schwartz and his team will carefully investigate the circumstances surrounding your treatment and your subsequent injuries. It is our goal to help you get the compensation you deserve from any and all liable parties. We will not be intimidated by large companies or insurance carriers into accepting a settlement that fails to meet your needs. Instead, we will continue to fight until you recover the damages necessary to put your life back together.
