Medical Device and Product Liability
When the medical device and other product manufacturers put their corporate profits ahead of safety concerns, it is innocent consumers who rely on the marketing promises of those large corporations that pay the price. Defective medical devices and products can cause serious and often very painful injuries that can affect the way of life for victims and their families for many years, while at the same time resulting in massive medical bills and loss of income. In the worst cases, fatalities can occur.
But there is a way for consumers who have been injured by defective medical devices and products – and the surviving family members of deceased victims killed by such products – to hold manufacturers and retailers of dangerous products responsible while winning financial recovery for all of their damages over their lifetime. As the founder of The Law Offices of Farris Ain, APC, my mission is to do everything I can to pursue full recovery for my clients when they are injured by defective products and medical devices, so that they are cared for and their needs met while large defendants are made to answer for their defective products.
Pursuing Justice in all California Medical Device and Defective Product Actions
Despite state and federal regulations meant to keep us safe, many thousands of Californians are injured by defective medical devices and products each year. Under California law, however, manufacturers and sellers of those products are strictly liable for the injuries their products cause when there was any of the following:
- a manufacturing defect, meaning something went wrong in the manufacturing process that made the product defective, e.g. a protective guard on a power tool was not properly installed,
- a design defect, meaning that the product or device was designed in a way that was not reasonably safe relative to other potential designs, or
- a failure to provide adequate warnings or other proper instructions
If you or a family member has been injured or killed, and you suspect a defective medical device or product may have played a role, our team can investigate the causes of injury or death as well as the product or device to determine whether you have a potentially successful lawsuit for damages and, if so, litigate aggressively on your behalf to obtain a significant settlement or verdict. Common types of medical devices or products that can cause injury include:
- Body implants (hip, breast, etc.)
- In-home medical devices
- Surgical devices
- Defective drugs that cause side effects
- Power tools
- Household appliances
