“If you have been injured or suffered other damages because of a product you used, you may have a defective product liability claim. Though the range of defective product cases is broad, the claims typically fall into three categories of product liability: (1) defective manufacture; (2) defective design; or (3) failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions concerning the proper use of the product.” https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/types-of-defective-product-liability-30070.html

Defective medical devices

“Dangerous or defective medical devices — such as faulty surgical instruments, implants, pacemakers, and prosthetics — can give rise to a product liability claim if a person who undergoes surgery or uses a medical device is injured or dies as a result. Although closely monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a product can be defective in its design, manufacturing process, or marketing strategy. In most instances, state lawsuits over federally-approved medical devices face stringent legal obstacles and often receive increased national attention. Below, you will find resources that highlight common high-risk medical devices such as stents and defibrillators, and links to product liability lawyers in your area, as well as helpful forms and other resources.

Defective auto parts and defective cars and automobiles- vehicle recalls

“Vehicle recalls and defects are not only an inconvenience but can also lead to serious accidents and injuries. If your car or vehicle is subject to a recall, you have certain rights as a consumer. In addition, if you were injured as a result of a vehicle defect, a product liability suit may be in order. This section provides an overview of vehicle defects and the recall process, information on your legal rights if you have a defective vehicle, and more. Here, you can also research the safety ratings and recall history of vehicles and equipment like tires and children’s car seats.”  https://injury.findlaw.com/product-liability/vehicle-recalls-and-defects.html

Bad drug lawsuits- defective prescription medication

“Defective Drugs Law falls under Product Liability law, is closely related to Pharmaceutical law and often overlaps with Medical Malpractice law.  As in all product liability claims, defective drug claims are based on three defect categories:  – Manufacturing defects – the pharmaceutical drug is manufactured improperly or the drug has become contaminated during the process and causes harm to the end user.  – Design defects (Dangerous side effects) – the pharmaceutical drug was manufactured correctly, but the side effects caused by the drug cause harm or injury. – Failure to Warn (Defective marketing) – a failure to provide sufficient or appropriate instructions, warnings, or recommendations for the use of the drug.  Defective drug claims can result in a great many different defendants: the manufacturer; testing laboratory; pharmaceutical sales representative; prescribing physician; clinic or hospital; and the pharmacy. When suing a hospital or physician for a drug product liability claim, the plaintiff may also have a medical malpractice claim.” https://www.hg.org/defective-drugs-law.html
