How Can We Help?

Clarksville Defective Medical Device Lawyer

Technological advancements in the field of medicine have resulted in longer life expectancies and a higher quality of life for many Americans. It seems that some new, potentially life-saving devices are made available every day.

While medical devices routinely perform a variety of functions that people like you and your loved ones depend on, the sad reality is that medical devices have been known to experience critical failures resulting in injuries and death. Why does this happen? Greedy medical device manufacturers often prioritize profit over safety, and the prospect of being “first to market” may render concerns such as quality control and user safety of lesser importance.

Have you or a loved one suffered a personal injury as a result of a defective medical device? Perhaps you need to undergo surgery or rehabilitation in order to recover. This can be a lengthy and painful process. There is also the matter of cost, both of the treatment itself and lost income due to time away from work. Worse yet, has a defective medical device resulted in a death in your family?

Located in downtown Clarksville, TN, Hughes & Coleman’s team of personal injury lawyers are passionate about their job and ready to help.

What to Do Next If You Have Been Harmed By a Defective Medical Device

After learning that the medical device you have depended on to promote or at least sustain your health is harming you, you may be left reeling. While a breach of trust is always painful, your next few steps can significantly impact where you go from here.

First, you must seek medical attention immediately. Long-term adverse side effects can often be avoided if you visit a health care professional right away. Additionally, early treatment to counteract the personal injury sustained from a defective device can make all the difference. You may well be able to recover the quality of life that you enjoyed prior to suffering personal injury.

Next, we urge you to seek legal advice from a personal injury lawyer well-versed in medical malpractice, especially injuries involving defective devices.

Our lawyers will help you find out if you have a viable claim. From there, we can develop a strategy that’s tailored to your experience, and we’ll pursue the claim until you and your family are justly compensated for your injury.

Product Liability Statute of Limitations in Clarksville, Tennessee

Another important reason to act quickly is that Tennessee law allows for product liability claims within a limited time frame. This means that the clock is running for you to successfully file a medical malpractice claim related to defective medical devices.

The statute of limitations in our state dictates that product liability claims must be filed within:

  • 6 years of the date of injury
  • 10 years from the date on which the product was first purchased for use, or;
  • 1 year of the expiration of the product’s anticipated lifespan

All of this means one thing: Time is of the essence. Don’t risk being left out in the cold by rigid state laws. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been injured by a defective medical device or other medical malpractice, seek out a law firm that cares about you and wants to see justice served just as much as you do.

Seeking Compensation in Personal Injury Cases Involving Defective Medical Devices

Have you racked up costly medical bills after suffering harm from a defective device? Were you unable to work due to the injury or necessary treatment? If so, you will likely be able to recover justly deserved compensation that can help you and your loved ones along the path to recovery.

What kind of financial compensation could you look forward to if you file a medical malpractice claim with Hughes & Coleman? Take note of just a few examples:

  • Hospitalization and ambulance costs related to your injury
  • Lost wages, including loss of future income prospects, if you are unable to work
  • Compensation for medical bills paid and projected treatment costs
  • Coverage for special services required as part of your recovery program, such as home nursing or rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering experienced by you and your loved ones
  • Funeral and burial costs, if your loved one has died from complications caused by a defective medical device

When seeking compensation, it is vital to pair up with a lawyer who understands medical malpractice lawsuits and knows how to deal with greedy pharmaceutical companies. That’s exactly what you’ll find when working with a lawyer from Hughes & Coleman.

Years of experience in defending Clarksville clients like you have given us a wealth of experience, allowing us to hone our skills and develop into a successful medical malpractice firm in TN.

What If Your Medical Device Hasn't Been Recalled Yet?

Just because your defective medical advice hasn’t been recalled doesn’t mean it didn’t cause harm. Nor does it mean you shouldn’t pursue a claim against its manufacturer.

Unscrupulous pharmaceutical companies rush products to market each and every week, and key quality-control steps may be omitted in their attempts to get ahead of the pack. At Hughes & Coleman, we know how these companies work.

Decades of practicing personal injury law in Tennessee and Kentucky have helped us build a wealth of experience in medical malpractice. We know how to pursue negligent and reckless medical device manufacturers, even if your claim is the first to be brought against them.
