Types of Defects that Could Affect Medical Devices

Each year technology is becoming more involved in the medical world than ever before. Now, patients rely on technology for diagnosis, tests, treatments and even some medication. There are a vast range of devices that are being used on patients, including scanners and surgical tools.

However, not all of the devices have to be technologically advanced to cause injuries with a defect. Even some of the most basic items can be faulty and cause problems. Some of the possible defects that could cause injury include:

  • Design defects – When the initial design of the tool or item is faulty, leading to all of the items with the same design having the same issue, it is considered a design defect.
  • Defective manufacturing – If a product was designed safely and it successfully completed the task it was meant to do, but it was manufactured in an unsafe way, it is considered defective manufacturing.  In this case, the manufacturer of the product may be held liable.
  • Marketing defects – If the risks or cautions associated with the product are not safely outlined in the product's instructions or packaging, it could be considered marketing defects. For example, if medication does not explain it should not be taken with another drug, you could become ill. 

If a patient is misdiagnosed or mistreated because of a minor flaw in a product, the manufacturer could be held liable. The manufacturer could be forced to pay for the patient's medical bills, in addition to lost wages, pain and suffering.
