Defective Medical Devices
Patients depend on medical devices to keep them healthy, and in some cases, alive. When a manufacturer releases defective medical products into the marketplace, the consequences can be devastating. It's important to hold these companies liable for any damages their defective medical devices cause, not only to help victims to be made whole, but also to prevent further tragedies.Responsibilities of Manufacturers | Protections for Consumers
Medical devices can be defective as a result of an inherent design flaw, a manufacturing defect or a deficient warning about the dangers of the device. Generally, manufacturers are held strictly liable for any defective products they sell. Consumers have the right to be protected from unreasonably dangerous products and to make fully informed decisions about the risks they choose to undertake.
