Victims are often overwhelmed over a serious injury. Many victims placed their faith in a medical device, medication, or a life-changing treatment, which only changed their life for the worse—and to add insult to injury, they are expected to pay for the medical costs of the failed treatment.
If you feel betrayed by the doctors or hospitals who treated you, you should know that there may be someone else who is responsible for your suffering. Victims who are hurt by a dangerous product can take action against the manufacturer of the product that resulted in their injury, getting much-needed compensation and holding the companies accountable for causing unnecessary suffering.
Our Product Liability Legal Team Helps Injury Victims Nationwide
The McGartland Law Firm has been representing injured individuals and their families for over 25 years. Together, we have gotten justice for people harmed by dangerous and defective medical devices, and fair compensation from the negligent manufacturers who caused their injuries. We guide our clients through the entire claims process, keep them informed of their case status, and handle all legal aspects of their case so they can recover in peace.
We understand that people who have been hurt by a dangerous product may be unwilling to place their trust in an attorney. You have already lost enough, so we make it easy for injured consumers to fight for compensation with as little risk as possible. Our firm is proud to represent injured victims on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will not owe us legal fees unless we win a settlement in your case.

We help victims who are suffering from many different kinds of physical and emotional injuries, including:
- Metal Hip Implants. Many patients rely on a hip implant to restore their lost mobility and improve the quality of their lives. However, thousands of patients who have received these devices suffered metallosis and failure of the device, leading to additional surgeries and prolonged healing times. We can help you take action for injuries caused by many different devices, including Depuy ASR, Zimmer Kinectiv, Wright PROFEMUR device, and Stryker implants.
- Dangerous Drugs. Too many prescription drugs are released into the U.S. market before their effects are fully understood. Pharmaceutical companies often choose profits over safety, pushing unsafe drugs into millions of hospitals and homes. Patients have suffered greatly due to Actos, Benicar, Ocella, Taxotere, Vioxx, Xarelto, Yaz, Yasmine, Zofran, testosterone, and numerous other prescription medications. By pursuing a case, you can get compensation for your losses, but also stop company practices to prevent these drugs from harming others.
- Defective Medical Devices. Consumers should be protected from defective medical devices by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, companies have increasing power over this regulatory agency, pressuring the FDA to speed up the approval process. As a result, many medical implants become available before they are fully tested, including the Essure implant, Bard IVC filter, and forced air warming blankets. We take action on behalf of victims who have suffered serious or permanent injuries as a result of a defective medical device.
- Personal Injury. Accidents may happen, but that doesn’t mean a victim should be expected to cover the costs of his injuries. Medical bills, physical therapy, and time off work can place a victim under significant financial strain, all while he is coping with overwhelming pain. We regularly help clients recover from car and truck accidents, oil field accidents, construction accidents, and other catastrophic injuries. If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, we can help you take action in a wrongful death claim, and we do not charge legal fees unless we secure compensation for you and your family.
