When a medical device violates FDA law, the manufacturer is obligated to take action by removing the product from the place where it is used or sold or they must correct the product. Products are recalled when they are found to be defective and don’t operate as intended or if they pose a risk to health. The FDA classifies recalls into three buckets:
Class I: A situation where there is a reasonable chance that a product will cause serious health problems or death.
Class II: A situation where a product may cause a temporary or reversible health problem or where there is a slight chance that it will cause serious health problems or death.
Class III: A situation where a product is not likely to cause any health problem or injury.

Ms Senerth took the burden of filing a claim for me, kept me informed of progress, and even advised that I decline the first offer. Ms Senerth told me how to collect affidavits and she used that info to get me a larger settlement. Highly recommended!
