Defective Medical Devices
When working properly, medical devices can greatly improve the lives of those suffering from an abnormality, chronic illness or disease. However, if a medical device is defective, serious health risks can be involved. Millions of people use an assortment of medical devices with the assumption that those devices are safe and do not pose a serious health risk. When devices are defective, patients are at serious risk for suffering a debilitating injury or even death if the defect is not detected and is left to cause more harm. Kentucky Defective medical device lawyers can help those at risk get the compensation they deserve.
Manufacturers of medical devices have the responsibility to provide a safe device for its recipients. When an injury or even death occurs as a result of a defective medical device, manufacturers are responsible for every product that they have marketed that has caused harm. Manufacturers are also responsible for performing tests on their products to determine product safety. Thus, they are liable for any injuries or deaths that occur because of a defective medical device.
Many medical devices perform as they were intended; however, errors in design or manufacturing can mean serious and life-threatening complications. In some incidents, manufacturers know that their medical devices have defects yet continue to market them to sell their product before it is recalled resulting in unnecessary pain and suffering. Unfortunately, there are some products that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yet still have defects that can cause serious complications. The ill effects of defective medical device complications can be life altering. It is hard enough to deal with any injuries from a defective product, but even harder to deal with the injury plus the emotional stress knowing the device failed because shortcuts were made by the manufacturer just to save money or a product was marketed even when manufacturers knew it could pose serious consequences.
