Defective Medical Device Lawsuit Claims

A lawsuit for product liability can name the device designer, the pharmacy, the manufacturer, the retailer and the distributor. Your physician who treated you can also be sued for malpractice. Claims have been brought that if the device was designed correctly and not unreasonably dangerous, the patient would not have been injured. Other claims have been brought that there was negligence by the maker in the manufacturing and development of the device. Victims of a defective medical device may seek to recover financial compensation for lost income because of the illness that was caused by the device that lead to time off of work, lost companionship and pain and suffering, and the jury can also choose to award punitive damages intended to punish the designer or maker of the device for placing a dangerous device on the market. A claim can also be brought against the physician who implanted the patient with the defective medical device.

How an Oklahoma Defective Medical Device Attorney Can Help

Device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.

People injured by defective medical devices may be eligible to recover money for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
