Product Liability Claims for Defective Medical Devices

by David Peel on February 21, 2014

Product Liability Claims for Defective Medical DevicesUnfortunately, there are times when people need to use medical devices for health reasons. And, sometimes instead of helping people, the medical devices cause injury instead. When this happens, the injured person may be able to bring a product liability claim to recover for his injuries. Because of this, it is important to know when a person can bring a product liability claim. It is also important for the injured person to know who he can bring a product liability claim against.

A product liability claim can be brought for defectively manufactured medical devices. In these cases, the injured party is claiming that the medical device was improperly manufactured or damaged. The defect can be any defect that occurs anywhere from the place the medical device was made to the place where the injured person received the medical device.

Product liability claims can also be brought for a defective design of the medical device. Here, the injured person is claiming that the design of the medical product was unreasonably dangerous. If the injured person can prove that the manufacturer knew or should have known that the product was dangerous, he might be able to recover his damages.

And, a product liability claim can be brought for defectively marketed medical devices. These claims can be brought by an injured person who is claiming that there were inadequate warnings on the product or there was a failure to warn about the dangers of the product.

Product liability claims for defective medical devices can be brought against several people. The injured party can bring these claims against the manufacturer of the medical device or the laboratory that tested the medical device. Claims can also be brought against medical sales representatives who sell the medical devices and recommend how to use them. And, claims can also be brought against the doctor or the hospital or the retail supplier. It is important to know that these claims can be brought against anyone who is in the chain of distribution of the medical devices.
