The Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children's Hospital conducted a 22 year period study and discovered that about every three minutes on average a child is treated in an emergency room for a toy related injury. That equates to about 175,000 children each year. How many thousands more are injured but do not go to the hospital for treatment?
The truth is, there are products that are injuring and killing people, and the families of those injured or killed deserve compensation and justice. The personal injury and defective product attorneys at Cherry & Irwin are experienced in litigating defective product lawsuits. Some of Samuel Cherry's lawsuits have resulted in product redesigns that have potentially saved countless people worldwide from injury and death while bringing positive changes to an entire industry.
Medical products are designed to make us healthier or to solve health problems but they can be even more dangerous when they fail to work as intended. Recalls on surgically implanted devices like the DePuy Hip Implant and the Medtronic Kappa and Sigma pacemakers require additional surgeries, pain and suffering to replace, not to mention thousands of dollars in otherwise unnecessary medical bills left for the patient to pay. The Food and Drug Administration recalled about 60 health-related products in 2014. Every one of those recalls represent a group of people who were potentially hurt and negatively impacted and should receive compensation.
