The medical device lawyers of Ratzan Weissman & Boldt represent people seriously injured by defective medical products, and the families of people whose wrongful deaths were caused by defective medical devices.
Medical and surgical products are used to save lives, improve a patient’s quality of life, and to help doctors diagnose and treat medical conditions. What happens when the medical device you rely on is defective? The results can be devastating and extensive.
Our Medical Device Lawyers Take On Cases We Believe In
Our attorneys have a career focus on medical device litigation. When you retain Ratzan Weissman & Boldt, you’re hiring an experienced team of medical device lawyers committed to getting justice for our clients.
We devote great time, resources and energy to each case we prosecute. For this reason, we are selective in the cases we accept.

Compensation for Victims of Defective Medical Devices
Medical device failures can happen with many types of products such as pacemakers, stents, implants, prostheses and dialysis equipment.
Medical device manufacturers are obligated by law to ensure the devices they sell are safe. They are responsible for making doctors and patients aware of any defects in the manufacture or design of their products as they become known.
However, medical device companies could put concerns for their profits before their legal duties to consumers. In addition, to keep up with the flood of new medical devices, the FDA approval process for medical devices appears to have become less rigid in some cases.
A medical device lawyer must be ready and able to hold the manufacturer accountable for the harm they impose upon the public. When a faulty medical device harms you or a loved one, these injuries deserve compensation from the responsible party. This compensation can include payment for monetary losses, pain and suffering, as well as damages awarded to punish the responsible party.
Medical Device Recalls
Each year, hundreds of new medical devices are placed on the market. FDA posts information about the most serious medical device recalls. The products they name are viewed as those that could cause serious health problems or death.
The tally of FDA medical device recalls and drug recalls is constantly growing. A brief list of examples of medical device recalls includes:
- Artificial hip and knee replacement parts, such as DePuy Hip Implants
- Cosmetic implants
- Defibrillators, such as Guidant heart defibrillators
- Heart valve implants
- Infusion pumps
- Intrauterine devices
- Kidney dialysis filters
- Pacemakers, such as Medtronic and Guidant
