Manufacturers of medical devices often promise that their products will provide an improved quality of life for an ailing patient. Unfortunately, these products can fail to do so, causing patients to be seriously injured or even die as a result of a defective medical product.
In some cases, manufacturers are aware of issues with their devices but fail to disclose those facts to patients. All patients have a right to know everything about the medical devices that will be assisting with their health and well-being. If a manufacturer, medical professional or hospital fails to adequately disclose information pertaining to potentially defective medical devices, they may be liable to pay compensation settlements to the injured parties.
