Medical malpractice has been known to claim more deaths than motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS within a single year. People who are the victims of medical malpractice can lose income and household productivity in addition to being injured due to negligence.
Despite the serious nature of medical malpractice claims, the state of Michigan has made it increasingly difficult to file a medical malpractice claim within its jurisdiction. It can be difficult for someone without extensive legal experience to navigate this complex system without feeling overwhelmed and intimidated, so the valuable advice of a skilled attorney and Registered Nurse like Eileen Kroll at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can be beneficial when attempting to prove negligence and malpractice in court.
Another area in which Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. have extensive experience is with defective medical devices. This is a specific form of malpractice where the blame will most likely fall not on the doctor who administered a certain procedure that went wrong. Instead, the blame is placed on either the manufacturer of a defective product or on the hospital who neglected to replace their medical equipment with a functional one if the manufacturer informed them of an issue.
There are several well-known class action cases regarding defective medical devices. These suits relate to products like Essure birth control, hernia and vaginal mesh, and recalls of products used in hip replacements.
Product liability suits are also something that Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can help you with. Our attorneys are already helping clients who are involved in suits like the 3M earplugs lawsuit, the lawsuits regarding talcum powder and ovarian cancer, and the IVC filter suits.
If you have a claim to file as a part of any of these suits, Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can help you navigate the process of adding your claim to the ones already compiled on a national level.
