What Types of Medical Device Defects Can Cause Injuries? 

Many factors can cause a medical device to be defective. 

Common medical device defects include:

  • Design Defect – The original design for the medical device makes it unreasonably dangerous to use. Inadequate testing and fast-track approval can put defective devices on the market.
  • Manufacturing Defect – An error during the manufacturing process causes the medical device not to work correctly. Changes in the design, use of inferior materials, and lack of oversight can cause a manufacturing defect.
  • Marketing Defect – Failing to disclose the risks or include adequate instructions for use can cause medical device injuries. 

Numerous parties could be liable for a defective medical device claim. The original designer or manufacturer could be responsible. However, doctors, hospitals, distributors, retailers, testing laboratories, and other parties could also be liable. 

Our Chicago defective medical device lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim to identify all parties liable for your damages.
