Defective Orthopedic Devices


When an orthopedic device or implant has caused an injury such as infection or permanent disability, you need a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer who understands the implications. Your recovery from debilitating injury is important, and legal protection is critical in minimizing your costs and obtaining fair compensation for an injury that might prevent you from working or even leaving a hospital bed.

At Weisman, Kennedy & Berris Co., L.P.A., product liability attorneys keep ourselves fully informed of the situations that could potentially affect our clients. Our Cleveland law firm and our attorneys are nationally recognized leaders in complex medical cases, working to ensure that defective orthopedic device manufacturers do no further harm to others across the United States. Our law firm invests our full resources to each individual client when we take on a case.

We have been pursuing mass tort claims involving dangerous and defective medical products for thousands of clients across the U.S. for more than 20 years. We understand medical causation, conduct discovery, cross-examination of expert witnesses, and we retain our own experts to disprove the claims of defendants who put nearly limitless resources into their defense.
