Who is Liable for a Medical Device Injury?
Who is Liable for a Medical Device Injury?

The medical device market has grown significantly in recent years, and it is now a $133 billion industry in the U.S. More and more individuals are being treated with medical devices, from hip implants to pelvic mesh devices. Unfortunately, these devices can be defective, which can result in injuries to patients.

Defective Device Liability

Typically the manufacturer of the device would be liable for injuries caused by the product. This could be due to a design defect, such as construction of the device with material that disintegrates. It could also be due to the manufacturer’s failure to give adequate warning on the risks associated with the device. Or perhaps the product was rushed to market without adequate testing, and it does not perform as promised and actually does more harm than good. In all of these scenarios, the device manufacturer could be held liable for injuries caused by the defective medical device.

In certain circumstances, the doctor or medical practice that recommended the device could also be held liable. If the doctor failed to warn you about the risks of the device, or failed to provide you adequate instructions on how to use the device, you might have a medical malpractice case.
