Defective Medical Devices
Companies and industries that manufacture, distribute, and sell medical products must take serious measures and precautions to ensure that their products are safe for patients to use. While the FDA actively works to determine the sound reliability of medical devices, sometimes a product may be in use for years before its defect presents itself. In any event, a defective medical device can have devastating consequences for victims and their families, causing a variety of severe injuries or wrongful death, during surgery and with implanted devices.

Every year, hundreds of new and different medical devices, including:
- Joint replacement components
- Cosmetic implants
- Surgical implants
Improper manufacturing can cause device failures resulting in detrimental injuries and side effects to the individuals who depend on them.
The injuries caused to individuals by defective medical devices are the result of either:
- Defective design
- Manufacturing error
- Failure to warn the consumer about possible harm associated with the product
Under Massachusetts State law, product manufacturers, distributors, and designers have a responsibility to create and distribute safe products. The manufacturer has a duty to design and distribute devices that eliminate hazards from products. If the manufacturer creates a defective medical product or fails to provide reasonable and accurate warnings of the dangers associated with the device, it will be liable for any injury you have suffered.
