Frequently Asked Questions About Wrongful Death Claims Based on Defective Medical Devices
As in many medical malpractice cases, you might not know the root cause of what went wrong. You may have recently learned that the device was subject to a recall. You may have even been contacted by the medical device manufacturing company. Take down all the information, but don’t make a statement or sign anything. If you suspect a defective medical device was the cause, call a wrongful death lawyer with experience handling defective medical device claims to evaluate and investigate your case.
Many facets of law come into play. Essentially, a medical device is a consumer product just like any other. It’s built to serve a purpose and should be safe for its intended use. As in all areas of medicine, no one can promise a perfect outcome. However, when a manufacturer cuts corners or someone makes misrepresentations about the device’s safety, that person can be held accountable.
