Serious Injuries Result from Defective Devices

  • Blood clots

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Severe infection
  • Inflammation of tissue

  • Was there a defect in the product’s design?
  • Was there a manufacturing defect that prevented the device from working properly?
  • Did the manufacturing company fail to warn patients and healthcare providers about the risks associated with the device?
  • Did the product come with adequate instructions for use?

how not to be a lawyer

according to eric t. chaffin

“My father was a union witness at an arbitration in a steel mill. After the hearing, my father, dressed in blue jeans and a sweatshirt, stuck out his hand to shake hands with the company’s lawyer. The lawyer refused. The lawyer was not upset because my dad got the best of him but because he frowned upon working class people. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. My dad used this story to remind me to respect others, to remember where I came from and as an example of how not to conduct myself as a lawyer.”
