Safety of Medical Devices Thrown into Question by Supreme Court Decision

In a recent landmark decision, the Supreme Court moved to limit consumers’ right to sue for damages related to design flaws in medical devices. According to the highest court in the land, FDA approval of a medical device should be evidence enough of its safety and reliability – and consumers are therefore prevented from bring lawsuits challenging device safety at the state level. The controversial decision is seen as a boon to the rapidly growing medical supply industry, already a $75-billion-dollar-a-year behemoth.

If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a faulty medical device or another treatment, you should talk things over with a highly-qualified personal injury lawyer.
