Gainesville Medical Product Liability Lawyers
Were You Surprised by a Medical Device Failure or Product Recall?
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, design flaws, questionable test results, shortcuts in the manufacturing process, and failing to warn unsuspecting doctors or patients are faults that can lead to tragic results. It's hard to believe that in today's world of "checks and balances" that companies still become so anxious to get their product to market that they simply ignore potential problems or dangers — but they do. Thus, the purpose of product liability law is to ensure that the costs of injuries or damages resulting from a defective product are borne by the manufacturer or sellers who placed the product or failed to adequately warn the consumer about the product's potential dangers.
Medical Device Recalls
Under provisions for recovery, a manufacturer or seller of a defective medical product or dangerous device can be held liable for negligently placing that product in the hands of healthcare professionals. Since a defective product case is a strict liability claim, success is not typically dependent upon proving someone's negligence.
If you or a loved one were injured due to the failure of a manufacturer or seller to exercise reasonable care or provide a safe product or service, contact a lawyer at (352) 261-6767.
