- Defective Medical Devices – There are a broad range of medical devices that have caused injuries to thousands of patients worldwide. These are often the result of a lack of testing before the manufacturer releases them for sale to the general public. Sometimes, manufacturing companies will keep information about potential risks from the public in an effort to make money. Medical devices that have been accused of causing harm to patients include the Ortho Evra Patch and the Bard Mesh Patch.

There are certain factors that need to be shown in these cases, for instance you were in fact injured by the product, that the defective products were actually defective and that you were using the product properly.
