Defective Medical Equipment Injury Claims

Those who rely on implants and other medical devices depend on those devices to improve their condition. At the very least, they expect that the device will not make their condition worse. Unfortunately, the companies that make medical products are often more concerned with making money than with helping people get better. They spend millions pressuring the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) into making early approvals of devices. Sometimes, FDA approval is bypassed altogether. This has led to a flood of serious injuries across Illinois caused by dangerous and defective medical devices.

At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, we represent people in DuPage, Will, Cook and Kane counties who suffered injuries due to problematic medical devices. Our law firm also handles wrongful death claims on behalf of families that have lost a loved one due to complications related to implants and other medical products. Since the mid-1990s, our lawyers have pursued maximum compensation for injured victims in Illinois.

Our firm has the resources, skill and experience to handle personal injury claims against major device manufacturers. Contact us online or call 630-848-9294 to learn how we can help you. We offer free consultations.
