Defective Medical Products

If you have been injured or a loved one has had their health affected by a defective medical product, you may be able to receive compensation from the manufacturer.

When you have been injured by a device intended to improve, rather than compromise your life, you may have cause for legal action, making it important to contact a Minnesota defective medical products lawyer as soon as possible.

Types Of Defects

  • Design flaws
  • Insufficient manufacturing quality
  • Insufficient warnings to consumers and physicians

Many medical products have well-known risks associated with them, which patients and the FDA deem necessary given the amount of benefit they can give. However, when these risks have not been made known to the consumer, this represents a clear breach of trust from the manufacturer of a device that must go through years of research and testing first.

Common Defective Products

  • Artificial knee joints
  • Defibrillators
  • Heart valves
  • Hip replacements
  • Pacemakers
  • Silicone breast implants
  • Intrauterine devices and other implanted contraceptives
  • Heart stents
  • Vaginal mesh

If a manufacturer has significant issues with products on the market, the FDA may step in to see what is happening. In the meantime, the manufacturer opens themselves up to numerous lawsuits. Typically, these lawsuits reach class action status. If there is already a class action lawsuit in place for a product that has caused you to sustain an injury or has caused the death of a loved one, contact your Minneapolis defective medical products attorney as soon as possible.
