Defective Medical Devices and Products FAQ

We represent individuals and families of individuals injured or killed by defective products, as well as defective or dangerous medical devices.

Defective Products

If you have been severely injured or your loved one has been harmed or killed by a product, you may have the right to file a claim against the product manufacturer or vendor. While many products are safely designed and pose no special risk to the person using them, some products are improperly designed, defectively manufactured, or fail to warn consumers about hidden dangers associated with use of the product. Manufacturers of defective products may be held strictly liable for all defects or potentially dangerous components. Plaintiffs may also have a cause of action if the product has been misrepresented, a warranty associated with the product has been breached, or if negligence of the manufacturer can be established.

At Marynell Maloney Law Firm, we seek full monetary compensation for all injuries related to defective products. Defective product claims are expensive and difficult to maintain. Large companies have legal staff and major insurance companies defending their interests. Engineering experts and other qualified experts must be hired to testify regarding the product’s defects. Therefore, if you’ve been injured by a defective product it’s imperative that you retain an experienced and competent attorney with the resources and reputation to fight for your rights. Some of the defective products cases we will consider are as follows:

  • Roof crush cases,
  • Seatbelt failures,
  • Tire defects,
  • Automobile rollovers,
  • Child restraint defects,
  • Airbag Injuries,
  • Boat accidents,

  • Electrical injuries,
  • Explosions caused by faulty products,
  • Industrial equipment defects.

Medical Devices

Medical device makers develop and market products that are supposed to help health care consumers. The entity for determining the effectiveness and safety of medical devices on the market is Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is a government agency and not a consumer watchdog group. In fact, the FDA often relies on manufacturers to provide them with proof of safety of the products. When medical device makers place profits above quality control and public safety, innocent consumers can be injured or even killed. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a medical device, you need an experienced attorney to represent your interests. We work with medical professionals, researchers, engineers, and other experts to expose design flaws inherent in certain medical devices and to protect you.
