Medical Device Litigation
Litigation by patients and their families related to health care often include claims implicating a medical device. These types of claims can create unique defense concerns and strategies when questions arise regarding alleged defects, maintenance, training and proper use. Knowledge of the law pertaining to design, manufacturing, and the use of medical devices is critical, but no more so than understanding how the maintenance and use of that device fits into the delivery of care to the patient.
