Defective Medical Device Lawsuits
A medical device is defined as any instrument, machine, apparatus, implant, or other object intended to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Medical devices are regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH). But even with FDA regulation, faulty and defective medical devices make it to market with disturbing frequency. In certain cases, the FDA even allows medical devices to come to market without human testing
A medical device may be defective for any number of reasons. A design defect may result in a device that is inherently dangerous as soon as it hits the marketing. Manufacturing defects, on the other hand, make an otherwise safe product dangerous. In both cases, however, defects are usually not uncovered until a medical device has been used on or implanted in thousands of patients. As a result, a single poorly designed or manufactured medical devices has the potential to harm large numbers of people
