DEfective drugs and device Recalls - what should you know?
Be careful what you sign: Don’t sign a waiver or any other document before talking to a lawyer. Anything you sign may may keep you from filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
If you call a helpline representative be careful! Medical device makers collect information from you during these calls. It’s not uncommon for them to try and use this information to limit your claims. Remember that you may not yet know the full extent of your injuries. It’s best to talk to a lawyer first to avoid saying anything that could hurt a future claim.
Device makers often have close relationships with doctors. It’s not unheard of for Doctors to sometimes help device makers or pharmaceutical companies. Your doctor may have records, or the device itself, that could help the manufacturer. Doctors may also try and talk you out of filing a lawsuit. We are not saying to distrust your Doctor but you should only take legal advice from your lawyer.
Compensation is usually limited under recalls. In fact, compensation offered Under a recall may not cover your future medical expenses and other losses. If this is the case, a lawsuit may be the only way to be compensated. For example, a a device or drug recall notice may not cover losses like lost wages or pain and suffering. A company may offer to pay some of the “necessary” medical costs but these may only be a fraction of what is needed. You may choose treatment other than what’s offered under the recall. You need to talk to your doctor, and perhaps get a second opinion, before choosing to get revision surgery. Make sure the treatment that’s being suggested is appropriate for you.
