Patients, AAJ Push For Law To Hold Medical Device Companies Liable

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that patients “injured by faulty medical devices want Congress to pass legislation that would override the Supreme Court decision in Riegel v. Medtronic, which found that consumers can’t sue medical device companies over medical devices that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.” Also, “Gerie Voss of the American Association for Justice, a trial lawyers group promoting the bill, says it’s unclear when the bill will go through, given Congress’ packed schedule.” She said, “We are hopeful we can move on this sooner rather than later so no other patient loses the right to hold manufacturers accountable.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
