More Than 30 Years of Fighting Hard and Winning Big For Injured New Yorkers
Some people have to rely on medical devices every day to maintain their health and even to stay alive. We trust the manufacturers of medical products such as pacemakers, insulin pumps, hernia patches and defibrillators when they say their products are safe for our bodies. In most cases these medical products perform as we expect them to and our lives are better for them. However, sometimes the push to get these devices on the market forces the device companies to cut corners, resulting in injury to the patients who depend on these devices.
If you have been injured as result of an unsafe or faulty medical device, you may be entitled to compensation. Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is a personal injury law firm that specializes in medical device malfunction. Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to help injured patients and consumers obtain fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered. We have what it takes to successfully handle your claim, while providing you and your family with the support that you need.
The race to design, manufacture and introduce to the public new technologies is a double-edged sword, one which has saved the lives of many individuals but harmed the lives of many when a device is defective, faulty or poorly designed. However such harm and injury is not limited to only new devices. Even longstanding devices can be improperly manufactured or have a flaw that results in injury and harm to patients.
At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our medical device malfunction attorneys can help you hold the liable parties accountable for the harm their negligence has caused you and your loved ones. We can aggressively fight for your rights in a variety of faulty device cases, including those involving:
Many individuals, including doctors and hospitals, rely on a variety of machines, devices, or pieces of equipment every day. If you or a loved one has been injured or even died as a result of a medical device malfunction, our legal team can provide you with the guidance that you need to obtain the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
Before a medical device can be introduced into the market, it needs to be extensively tested and approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Despite the need for approval by the FDA, the manufacturers of the devices ultimately are responsible for ensuring the product’s safety.
When a medical device malfunctions or is discovered to be faulty, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to inform the FDA and the public about the discovered flaw and any potential risks. If the manufacturer fails to take this important step in a timely manner, it can be held liable for its act of negligence. This can ultimately put the manufacturer at risk of being held accountable for the consumers’ injuries, illnesses of deaths.
Reporting medical device malfunction is the only way that manufacturers and regulators can understand what is wrong with their equipment and how the failure affects the users and patients. This is important information that may prevent similar, or even more serious, injuries and illnesses in the future to other consumers. In fact, in certain situations, if your medical device has failed, you may be required to report it to both the manufacture and the FDA.

When you are injured, you need to focus on your course of treatment. You should leave everything else to our legal team. We will take every step necessary to hold the negligent parties responsible for the injuries you have suffered and to prevent others from suffering serious similar injuries as a result of the faulty medical device.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
