Types of medical products liability
Manufacturers and distributors are responsible for the reasonable safety of their products and for adequately warning consumers about potential risks of harm. Manufacturers and distributors have to consider all the reasonable ways a product may be used. This duty is especially important when the product is something you put into your body, such as a medication or medical device. Examples of medical product liability matters are:
- Defective medical devices. Although medical devices have revolutionized healthcare, when they are defective, these devices can have catastrophic consequences. Products such as Infuse bone grafts, Sulzer hip replacements, transvaginal placements of surgical mesh, faulty pacemakers or heart valve implants, and malfunctioning insulin pumps are examples of areas in which medical devices can lead to serious injuries and a products liability lawsuit.
- Prescription drug side effects. Pharmaceutical liability cases often receive significant publicity. Examples include matters related to Accutane, Isotretinoin, Actos, fentanyl pain patches, Yaz and other dangerous medications.
Our legal team is fully equipped to assist you with claims related to the harmful side effects of using these medical devices or drugs.
What is breach of warranty?
In a case involving products liability, an injured party can argue that the harm was caused by reliance on certain promises or warranties made by the manufacturer or seller of the item, which turned out not to be true. A breach of warranty claim can be based on either an express warranty or an implied warranty. An express warranty is one explicitly stated (usually in writing) from the manufacturer or seller to the consumer. An implied warranty is based on the reasonable expectations of the buyer. One of our personal injury lawyers in Atlanta can you determine if your injury is the result of a breach of warranty.
