Experienced in Medical Device Litigation

Law partners Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland bring 80 years of experience in personal injury litigation, with many verdicts and settlements in product liability cases.

Dempsey & Kingsland has the experience and resources to take on major manufacturers of medical devices in pursuit of rightful damages for our clients. We have handled complex, multi-district litigation and class action lawsuits. Our firm also hires experts in product engineering and manufacturing, surgical implantation, medical electronics, and related fields to demonstrate the failure and to establish a connection between the device and the adverse patient outcome. We also examine implied consent and whether our client was a suitable candidate for an implantable device.
