Los Angeles Defective Medical Device Lawyer
As a patient, you trust the treatments your physician or surgeon recommends are in your best interests. You also trust that the devices coming from medical manufacturers are reasonably safe and effective. Unfortunately, not all manufacturers verify the safety of their products before releasing them to medical providers. Defective products can slip through the cracks and cause significant patient injuries and deaths.
If you or someone you love has suffered serious injuries because of a defective or dangerous medical device in Los Angeles, our plaintiff’s attorneys can help. The lawyers at Rose, Klein & Marias LLP offer free consultations at our local law office.

When to Contact Our Law Firm
Pursuing a product liability claim alone could expose you to insurance bad faith practices. Insurance bad faith means the provider fails to treat your claim fairly and honestly. You may not realize that an insurance company is giving you the runaround and may accept a settlement that is far less than the true value of your damages. Hiring a lawyer, on the other hand, can protect you from insurance claims adjusters. Your attorney will fight for fair compensation on your behalf.
Examples of Defective Medical Devices
While modern technology has opened the doors to cutting-edge medical innovations, it has also left room for mistakes. In our decades helping patients with defective and dangerous medical device lawsuits, we have seen many different treatments gone wrong.
- DePuy hip and knee replacements
- Da Vinci surgical robots
- Bard IVC filters
- Transvaginal mesh
- Drug-coated heart stents
- Mirena IUDs
- Power morcellators
- Breast implants
No matter what medical device you believe caused your injuries or a loved one’s death, speak to our lawyers about a potential product liability lawsuit. We can analyze your case, collect facts, search for evidence of a defect and potentially help you go up against the creator of the product in question for damages.
How to File a Product Liability Lawsuit
You have two years from the date a defective product injures you, or the date you discover your injuries, to file a product liability claim in California. If you do not discover your DePuy hip replacement is depositing metal into your body until five years after your implant, for example, you will have two years after that to file your injury claim. As soon as you suspect a defective/dangerous medical device caused your health problems, contact an attorney from Rose, Klein & Marias LLP.
Once you contact our law firm, we will review your case and let you know if we believe you have the elements of a product liability claim. If so, we can file the proper paperwork to bring your claim with the Los Angeles County civil courts before the deadline. Then, our lawyers can negotiate a full and fair settlement from an insurance company on your behalf. We can also take your liability claim to court if a product manufacturer refuses to settle your case for a fair amount.
