Defective Medical Devices

What is a Defective Medical Device Lawsuit?

A defective medical device lawsuit is a personal injury lawsuit where the injured party has been harmed because of a defect in or a failure of a medical device.  Medical devices fail for a variety of reasons, from poor design, to faulty assembly and improper implantation.  Medical devices can also be deemed defective if a patient is not adequately informed about the risks and benefits associated with the device.  Some medical devices have protection from lawsuits based on a doctrine known as preemption.  If you intend to pursue a medical device lawsuit, it is critical that the law firm representing you understands how to overcome preemption and other legal defenses.
