Bard sells bad blood filters

Medical Device Manufacturer Knowingly Sells Dangerous Blood Filters to Innocent Patients

People entrust implanted medical devices to make their lives better and keep them healthy. Although it is understandable that medical devices may sometimes fail, it is unconscionable to think a medical device manufacturer would knowingly enable inherently dangerous medical devices to be implanted into patients. C.R. Bard has put hundreds of thousands of patients at risk with their G2 and G2 Express blood clot filters.

The G2 Express devices were put on the market after the G2 devices were known to cause deaths to several patients in Florida. However, the G2 Express was nearly identical to its predecessor and confidential documents from the company show that Bard knew that the G2 Expresses were as dangerous as the G2 units. Defective medical device attorneys say that people in the Boca Raton area are particularly at risk for having one of these faulty implants due to the local demographics.

The executives at Bard made a profit-driven decision to endanger people’s lives in order to maintain their bottom lines. They deserve to be held financially responsible for all of the victims they have put at severe risk and harmed. According to Boca Raton defective medical device attorneys, punitive damages are more likely to be applicable in cases like this where a business knowingly risks peoples’ lives. Bard has some accountability owed towards every one of the more than 160,000 people that received one of the G2 Express devices.

There is only one way to get corporations like Bard to stop putting profits before the lives of consumers. Defective medical device victims need to hire our experienced Boca Raton personal injury attorneys to recover financial compensation and nullify the profits recovered from their nefarious actions.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

“I am so thankful for EVERYONE, the entire staff at Osborne & Francis Law, for mentoring me through the mediation process with my hip replacement failures. I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.
