DEFECTIVE MEDICAL PRODUCTS
Georgia Defective Medical Products Lawyer
Serving Georgia and Other States for Medical Product Injuries
As a patient or family member, you have every right to trust that medical equipment will aid in your recovery, not cause additional medical problems. When a defective medical device causes serious injury or death, you need to understand your legal options.
The Regulation and Recall of Medical Devices
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health, a division of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, regulates the manufacture, packaging, labeling, and importation of medical devices sold in the United States. The FDA can recall a dangerous or defective product and either require corrective action or mandate its removal from the marketplace. In 2012, the FDA recalled 1,190 medical devices and radiation-emitting products.
What Can You Do?
When poorly designed, medical devices can cause devastating injuries to the very patients they were meant to help. Fortunately, the manufacturers who sell many defective devices can be held accountable, and injured patients may be able to get compensation for their expenses, pain and suffering.
