Representing Clients Injured by Dangerous or Defective Medical Devices

Like all manufacturers, medical device manufacturers have an obligation to ensure that the products that they provide are safe and free from defects. If medical device is dangerous or defective, the manufacturer then has an obligation to warn the public about the dangers, remove the unsafe product from the market, and correct any defect. The failure to take appropriate action could result in liability for any injuries or deaths that occur as a result of the product defect.

Strict Liability for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

Under the legal theory of strict liability, manufacturers – including the makers of medical devices – can be held liable for injuries and deaths caused by their products, regardless of whether they knew or should have known that the product was unsafe. In order for a plaintiff to recover under the theory of strict liability, he or she must prove that an unreasonably dangerous condition or defect existed in the product at the time the product left the manufacturer’s control.

Medical Malpractice Claims

If a doctor continues to use a medical device that he or she knows to be dangerous or defective, the injured party may also have a medical malpractice claim against the doctor or hospital.
