Todd Muchnick and Aaron Haber obtained a $695,000 personal injury settlement against a multi-national medical implant device manufacturer for a woman who suffered severe injuries from a failed medical device surgically implanted into her body. After a lawsuit was filed, it was discovered that the medical implant was faulty because it failed to properly attach to the surrounding bones, which allowed it to move within her body. The movement of the implant caused severe pain with most movements. The plaintiff was forced to undergo additional surgery to remove and replace the defective device. During the investigation of the cause of the failure, it was revealed that the device was defective and was not adequately tested prior to requesting approval from the Federal Drug Administration and the release into the chain of commerce.
