What to Know: Defective Medical Device Law

Defective medical device cases fall under the form of law known as product liability found under Ala Code § 6-5-521, meaning any action brought by a natural person for personal injury, death, or property damage caused by the manufacture, construction, design, formula, etc.

These failed defective medical devices could cause any number of injuries to victims. A few of the most common failures we’ve seen at DeGaris Law include:

How Do I Prove Liability?

Defective Medical Devices are generally associated with strict liability, which holds the third party liable for producing the device, regardless of their intent or knowledge.

Third parties can be held liable for any of the following categories:

  • Incorrect or insufficient manufacturing: the medical device was built incorrectly using parts that could cause harm.
  • A design defect causes injury: the company responsible for the device’s invention and user experience fails to prioritize consumer safety from the beginning.
  • Failure to notify consumers with a warning: the party fails to disclose the known health risk of the device to the patient.

When Should I Start My Case?

Victims in Alabama have two years to file a product liability injury or death lawsuit and one year for any actions against the original seller, according to Ala. Code § 6-5-502.

To avoid claim dismissal, the time to act is now. Contact the Birmingham defective medical devices lawyers at DeGaris Law to fight for you. In the event a death occurs due to medical device complications, our Birmingham wrongful death lawyers can help navigate your case for fair compensation.
