Recalling Defective Devices

Like all manufacturers, makers of medical devices have an obligation to ensure their products are safe and free from defects that could cause harm to consumers. Manufacturers do not produce products with the intention of causing harm, rather improper testing or inadequate research can allow a product to reach the market with flaws.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is tasked with ensuring consumers’ safety by requiring new products undergo years of laboratory testing and clinical trials before a device is approved for widespread use.

If a device is found to be dangerous, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to notify the FDA to issue a recall of the product and to take appropriate actions to correct the problems. Unfortunately, manufacturers, who are often solely focused on making a profit, will refuse to pull defective medical devices from the market, will attempt to cover up the problem, or will claim nothing is wrong with their product. At this point, the FDA must step in and remove the product from the marketplace.

Unfortunately, a massive recall often comes too late, after hundreds, or even thousands, of patients have already suffered unnecessary harm. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed because of a bad product, our defective medical device attorneys can help you hold the company accountable and recover the maximum amount of compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.
