What information is important to my case if I have been injured by a medical device?
It is absolutely critical that the manufacturer and serial number of the device that caused your injuries be identified. Without that information, you may not have grounds to file any claims against any manufacturers. That information oftentimes can be obtained from the medical records of the practitioner that put the device in you, the hospital that you may have had that done at, but it’s absolutely critical that we identify the device. If the device is removed, demand that it be given to you and not destroyed. That way you’ll have a better case against the manufacturer. You’ve got the device, you can have it examined by your own expert, and proceed accordingly.
