Defective Medical Devices

Dangerous or defective medical devices -- such as faulty surgical instruments, implants, pacemakers, and prosthetics -- can give rise to a product liability claim if a person who undergoes surgery or uses a medical device is injured or dies as a result. Although closely monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a product can be defective in its design, manufacturing process, or marketing strategy. In most instances, state lawsuits over federally-approved medical devices face stringent legal obstacles and often receive increased national attention. Below, you will find resources that highlight common high-risk medical devices such as stents and defibrillators, and links to product liability lawyers in your area, as well as helpful forms and other resources.
