Defective Medical Devices
Alabama Defective Medical Device Attorneys
The FDA is responsible in making sure that all medical devices sold or implanted in the U.S. meet high standards to protect the public. These products must go through rigorous tests to prove their safe use in patients before wide distribution of the product. Unfortunately there can be hidden problems that arise with an approved product that was not known prior to approval. Sometimes these issues may have been known but unlawfully covered up by the medical device manufacturer. When this occurs, innocent victims can suffer great pain or even death because of a company’s greed to make large profits, instead of protecting the patients they claim to be helping.

Improper Marketing of Medical Devices
Sometimes FDA approved medical devices are improperly marketed to doctors for off label use on patients. These products have previously been proven to be safe for a particular use but in some cases the manufacturer marketed the product for an unapproved use. This is known as “Off Label” use. This off label use could have also been the result of a doctor, hospital, sales representative or other medical personnel that might have given bad advice as to how the product could be used. Many times, this off label use practice can lead to great pain and suffering for the patients that unknowingly trusted their medical professional.
