What Are Defective Medical Products?

A defective medical product is anything that causes more harm than is does good. This can include any prescription drug, medical device, medical implement or machine. The defect may have occurred due to the manufacturing of the product, the implantation of it, the improper use of it, or its failure to actually do what it's supposed to accomplish.

Some of the most common defective medical products include the following:

knee implant 1
  • Dangerous drugs: Drugs that were falsely advertised, falsely labeled, caused harm, or don't do what they say they will.
  • Defective hip or knee implants: When a person receives a hip or knee replacement, they are often made up of multiple pieces. Sometimes, one piece or the entire implant can fail or even cause a horrible allergic reaction.
  • Defective medical products: This can include anything that has been implanted for medical purposes, such as: stents, pacemakers, birth control types, IVC filters, and transvaginal mesh.

Defective medical products can also include implantable tubes that migrate, medical systems that don't work, and even robotic surgery that fails.

Client Testimonial

"I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. I had an injury that required surgery and physical therapy, not to mention replacing my totaled bike. Chris helped me to get the compensation I was due from my accident. I know with his expertise I did better than if I had pursued working with the insurance companies on my own. He was patient and realistic, and his staff was considerate and kind to work with. I would definitely recommend him to work with anyone who needs help navigating situations where legal knowledge would help."

When to Seek Justice

When you've suffered because of a defective medical device, it may mean that you have to repeat the surgery you already had. It can also mean having things removed and replaced or having undergo multiple treatments to recover from how the dangerous drugs affected you. When these things occur, it can be painful and very expensive, so please don't hesitate to seek compensation.

Our attorney spent 7 full years of his 25-year career doing defective product cases, so he has the insider information that can help you. Also, at Jeffress Law, there is one attorney, so you will always be given personal attention and never be treated like a number. Mr. Jeffress will do thorough research in order to properly approach your case.

Generally, no, physicians are not legally responsible for defects in medical devices. The defects and the harm they caused are the fault of the manufacturer, which a lawyer can help you discuss in detail. In a majority of cases, claims are filed against the device manufacturer, not the prescribing physician.

MDL stands for “multi-district litigation,” and it arises when multiple claims for the same issue are filed against a defendant. This consolidates all of these cases into a single case, which can help make the legal process more effective. It can also ensure that those seeking legal justice receive fair compensation.

If a loved one had wrongfully died due to a defective medical device, the legal representative of their estate must file the claim.

You can use the Food and Drug Administration’s Medical Device Recalls Database to search for recalls. Furthermore, the manufacturers of the defective devices are obligated by law to contact patients and inform them that a device has been recalled. 

A defective device does not perform its intended purpose and poses health risks to users due to improper design or manufacturing. Any medical device with a flaw that makes it unsafe to use is defective.
