Thousands of people are injured or killed every year as a result of products and medical devices that are poorly manufactured, negligently designed, or wrongly labeled.
A product liability lawsuit is a difficult matter as the usual defendant is a large corporation involved in manufacturing, distributing, supplying, or selling the defective product. To prevail in these cases, considerable experience, resources, and access to expert witnesses is required.
Defective products have the potential to cause enormous harm, and can occur with nearly every item in widespread use, including: automobiles and automobile products such as tires; dangerous drugs; household products; dangerous toys; all terrain vehicles; machinery defects; vitamin supplements; and defective household items.
In addition to these products, defective medical devices is an area in which Spinella & Associates has had considerable experience. For example, we have successfully represented multiple women plaintiffs who suffered significant internal injuries arising from the use of the Cooper 7 IUD (internal uterine device) which was sold by the manufacturer with known design defects. In another set of ongoing cases the firm represents numerous plaintiffs with defective metal-on-metal hip replacements where the moving metal parts break down in the body causing blood-poisoning and other life-threatening problems.
