Defective medical device lawsuits arise when patients receive products that are unsafe because of a design or manufacturing defect. Such products can cause further injury—or even death. If you suffered injuries as a result of a defective medical device, the product manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be held liable.
Injuries caused by a defective medical device vary widely depending on the condition of the patient and the type of medical device involved. Some examples of recent defective products and related injuries include:
Overlaps exist between defective product liability and medical malpractice claims, so it is best to consult with a West Virginia medical malpractice attorney about your options. Manufacturers may claim they fulfilled their duty to warn about potential dangers by informing medical professionals—who were then expected to inform patients. Or, medical staff may fail to properly maintain devices or neglect to ensure recommended products are free of defects and have no known recalls. Such instances are complex and require the experience of a skilled malpractice attorney.
