Defective Medical Device

Hurt by a medical device? call (855) HURT-MED

Medical devices include a broad array of equipment that run the gamut from complex machines used in hospitals to common everyday products used by patients at home. While intended to improve a patient’s health, medical devices sometimes are designed with defects or flaws that lead to serious personal injury or death.

In the beginning of 2010, twenty one medical devices were recalled by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA): http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/default.htm

Types of problems with medical devices

  • Design Defects: although manufacturers must submit their designs to the FDA for approval, sometimes a device enters the market and later errors are uncovered in the design.
  • Manufacturing Defect: meaning the product is made incorrectly; issues with quality control and the manufacturing process.
  • Warning Defect: if the manufacturer knows of an existing issue but fails to warn patients of the danger.
