Medical Device

Wooden & McLaughlin has defended a number of medical device manufacturers in complex actions related to purported warnings, manufacturing, and use of devices. In directly representing of Cook Group, Inc., of Bloomington, Indiana, whose subsidiaries comprise the world’s largest privately held manufacturer of medical devices, and include Cook Medical, Cook Urological and Cook Endoscopy and others, the firm has had to litigate or act as coordinating counsel for matters throughout the United States.

Our representation is also often requested by specialty insurance carriers such as Medmarc, a leading expert in the products liability risks facing medical technology and life sciences companies, or by specialty groups within commercial general liability insurance carriers. We are active participants in the Indiana Medical Device Manufacturing Council and take pride in our skills in defending medical device manufacturers and suppliers in personal injury cases.

The lawyers in this group thrive on learning about the technical aspects of a particular device and applying those facts to Indiana’s product liability laws, as well as federal law. Not only do the lawyers in this group have an understanding of the products – the medical devices – but they know how to utilize that understanding to protect the interests of medical device manufacturers and suppliers in court.
