Strict Liability Claims and Negligence Claims in Defective Medical Device Cases

Depending on state law, we can take different approaches to pursue financial recovery for your injuries and losses in a products liability action. Strict liability claims allow you to receive damages without the requirement of proof of negligence on the part of the defendant. Instead, we demonstrate that the medical device was defective and resulted in your injuries. Strict liability laws vary by state, but in principle, they allow you to obtain compensation by showing that your injuries were caused by a defective product that was manufactured or sold by the defendant by proving:

  1. The medical device has an “unreasonably dangerous” defect.
  2. The device was being used in a way that was reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.
  3. The device had not been substantially altered from the condition in which it was originally sold.

Negligence claims are based on the premise that the defendant owed a duty of care to those who were going to make use of their product. In the case of defective medical devices — especially those that get implanted into the body of the patient — the manufacturer’s negligence could stem from:

  • Faulty research and design
  • Insufficient product testing
  • Faulty manufacturing practices
  • Failure to issue a warning to discontinue use 
  • Failure to recall the product

Manufacturers have a Duty to Notify the Public of a Defective Device

As soon as a medical device is found to cause problems or show defects, the manufacturer is required to notify the FDA and warn the public about the defect and the problems it has caused. Failure to notify the FDA about the known defect is considered an act of negligence and makes the manufacturer liable for any illness, injury or death that occurs as a result of the failure of the device.
