Every day we are bombarded with commercials for new drugs and medical products.  It is clearly a profit driven industry.  Unfortunately, this drive for higher profits can lead to safety shortcuts and the rush of a dangerous product to the market, resulting in life changing injuries or even death.  If you or someone you know have been the victim of dangerous medical equipment, drugs or items with defects and have injuries because of them, the Chattanooga defective products legal team at The Higgins Firm will fight to obtain the compensation that you may be legally due.

Our Tennessee lawyers will assess any injuries you may have, do any research that may be needed to determine the cause of the problems with item or equipment you used and make sure that the makers of the items or equipment are held responsible for what you have suffered.


According to state laws, a medical product is thought to be faulty or full of defects if the problem is one made in the production of the product or in how it was designed. These defects can include but are not limited to malfunctioning or damaged wires in the product, flawed programming in the corrective product or another production flaw or problem in the way the medical product was structured that can cause injuries to occur.

Also, if a company or maker of faulty products does not provide adequate notices about these issues or possible side effects to a physician or medical team as well as to the general public, this violates state laws and means that you may have an injury case due to the problems with the item or equipment. The people of Tennessee deserve to be informed and provided with an explanation of the possible dangers of all items and equipment they may need to use. If people that make these items fail to adequately warn people about these dangers and sell these items anyway, they can be legally responsible if any injuries occur while someone is using their product.


Damages allowed in medical products liability lawsuits include compensation for past pain, future pain, medical expenses and lost wages. If you required revision or corrective surgery, needed to be hospitalized, or were unable to return to your job, these are all losses that we can seek compensation for. In order for a lawsuit to succeed, the skills and knowledgeable of respected lawyers are needed. These lawyers work with the Chattanooga Higgins Firm.

State laws decide compensation amounts that are permitted for faulty corrective products and an injury that may result from the negligence of a medical team. These amounts are determined based on the degree to which the production company was aware of the injuries that people could suffer. The compensation that you could be eligible for includes but is not limited to:

  • Monetary compensation- In this state, this kind of compensation is for the costs of any treatment that you already had as well as for any you may need later, any loss of income now any income you would have had later on. This also covers any promotions that you may have received had you not been injured.
  • Non-monetary rewards- This is for any discomfort you may have experienced including damage to your emotions, losing friends or a spouse, as well as any other kind of discomfort or hardships you may have experienced because of your injury.
  • Punitive Damages- In this state, these rewards are given to punish the production company or makers of the faulty corrective products if they were aware of the injury their product could cause or if their careless actions led to the faulty product.
