Defective Medical Devices

When it comes to medical devices, the stakes are obviously high. While mistakes happen, manufacturers are obligated to test their products extensively before they become a source of serious injury to patients. At Huber, Slack, Thomas &Marcelle, we hold medical manufacturers accountable when their products cause harm.

Product defects are often the result of rushing a product to market without careful product design and testing. Sometimes, individual components are the source of the defect. No matter the cause, we have significant experience investigating defective medical devices and taking cases to trial.

If you’d like to discuss the details of a defective medical device case, please contact us. We represent clients in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, and nationwide.

Pharmaceutical Liability

In the United States, pharmaceutical sales represent an industry with profits in the billions. Occasionally, complications can arise when pharmaceutical products are irresponsibly marketed, insufficiently tested, or incorrectly prescribed. The repercussions of dangerous drugs and practices can be serious and can include birth defects, illness, and even death, and can be eligible for substantial compensation.

At Huber, Slack, Thomas &Marcelle, we take pharmaceutical liability cases seriously—as they represent a breach of the trust we hold for our medical professionals. We are experienced in the field of pharmaceutical litigation and class action efforts.
