What duty do medical device manufacturers owe to the patients receiving their devices?
Medical device manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products are properly tested, designed, manufactured, and safe for use. Failure to meet this duty can put millions of people at risk and cause untold amounts of harm.
What is product liability?
When filing a product liability lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove that the drug or device that injured them is defective or not safe for its intended use.
Medical devices can be defective in the following ways:
- Design defect
- Manufacturing defect
- Lack of adequate warnings or instructions

Determining who is responsible for injury or illness caused by a defective medical device can be complex. Further complicating matters, multiple parties may be responsible for the condition, including:
- Designer of the medical device

What Our Clients Have To Say
On the basis of Mark Altemose’s handling of my personal injury case, I give him my highest recommendation. You simply can’t do better. I was involved in a bicycle accident in a section of the road undergoing construction. My case was complicated for many reasons, and because of the strength of the case that Mark established, the insurance company settled for a monetary amount very close to what Mark predicted. A couple of other reasons for recommending Mark: 1) Mark pursued every possible direction to obtain information providing me with the best likelihood of a positive outcome. 2) Mark could recall extensive knowledge of my case without notes, including a better knowledge of my past medical history than I had. I have no doubt he would have been an incredible trial lawyer if the need had arisen. 3) He, in fact, has won awards from his professional associations for his professional accomplishments; and also “gives back” by serving his professional organizations in a variety of official capacities and by mentoring up-and-coming younger lawyers. He clearly is a leader in his field. 4) It was obvious to me that Mark also has the highest ethical standards.
Very professional, made us feel relaxed & comfortable. Treated us with respect and fought hard for what we deserved. Highly recommended!
I had never had to do something like this before and I heard a lot of bad stories about cases dragging on. Mr. Altemose and Mrs. Zancofsky handled every part of my case with urgency and in a timely manner. They made the whole process easy to follow and kept me continually updated. After everything was finished, I know I certainly made the right choice.
