Types Of Medical Device Defect
There are three categories of product defects that can be recognized in your faulty medical device case:
- Design defect. When there is a flaw in the product design, the items become inherently defective no matter how properly they are manufactured, handled, or used. A design defect usually results in many cases of injuries among users and can lead to a massive product recall. For example, there are warming blankets that electrocute users even when turned on to safe settings.
- Manufacturing defect/Production defect. Sometimes, mistakes occur during the manufacturing, handling, or shipping of the product, resulting in a dangerous condition of a particular item or items. An example is a thermometer with a weak or broken part.
- Marketing defect. “Marketing” in this context refers not just to promotion and advertising, but also to product packaging, labeling, and information. Marketing defects include false advertising, unsuitable packaging, inadequate labeling, and lack of critical instructions. An example would be if the seller of an implant failed to warn the purchaser about potential risks and side effects.
Given these various defects, it is possible that several different parties may be held liable in your medical device injury case. These may include the manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, doctor, or healthcare provider that led you to use the faulty device. To pinpoint all liable parties and fearlessly stand up to them, let the Brod Law Firm investigate and build a case for you.
