Medical Devices Can Be Dangerous To Your Health
Defective medical devices can cause serious injuries and in some cases death. We represent clients who have been victims of dangerous medical devices. We also represent those people who have lost loved ones because of these defective products. When you put your trust in a manufacturer of medical devices, you’re not expecting to become ill, injured or to die. Manufacturers of medical devices should be held accountable when their products fail. These companies need to be held responsible.

Don’t Let Time Run Out
In Montana, a three-year statute of limitations exists. This means you have three years from the date of the injury to bring a case against the negligent party. Don’t delay. Contact us to discuss your medical device case with a lawyer.
We generally handle injury claims on a contingent fee basis. This means our fee is a percentage of what we recover for you. If you don’t recover, you owe no attorney’s fees.
