Defective Medical Devices

Exploring Your Legal Options After a Medical Device Injury

Innovations in medical devices have opened up new opportunities to patients afflicted with many different illnesses and injuries — but when these products are defective or unsafe, the consequences can cause more serious conditions or even death. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we serve as aggressive advocates for individuals who have been injured by defective medical devices. Our knowledgeable attorneys support clients throughout the legal process in dangerous product cases. We serve as local advocates for those who can benefit from taking part in a mass tort claim.

What are Mass Tort Claims for Defective Medical Devices?

Mass tort claims consolidate claims from plaintiffs across the country into a single lawsuit against one or more manufacturer defendants to recover damages for widespread harm, like the distribution of unsafe medical devices. Often, liability is established through one or more trial cases, followed by a large overall settlement for all plaintiffs in the group. If no settlement is achieved, the cases are directed back for individual plaintiffs to proceed with trials in their home courts to identify their individual damages.

Mass tort claims make it easier for plaintiffs to seek justice, by limiting the expense and time required to build a solid case. However, these large-scale claims often leave participants without a local advocate to guide them through the process.

Our Role in Your Case

At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we work in conjunction with many well-respected national firms that handle mass tort cases. Our attorneys will serve as local representatives who can answer your questions, communicate with the national counsel and fight for your rights.
