The lawyers at our firm appreciate that even a single act of misconduct can affect hundreds or even thousands of people. That is because we live in an interconnected society where the ramifications of an incident are rarely isolated. The potential for expansive harm is perhaps most acute in situations related to product liability and mass produced materials. Of course anything from toys to window blinds can pose unnecessarily high risks of danger. Because of the mass use of those products, even one faulty error can have significant consequences.
The same is true for products like medical devices. If those devices are not manufactured or designed appropriately, then hundreds or thousands of medical patients might be harmed. These risks are well known, which is why these medical device manufacturers and designers are held to reasonable standards of conduct. They cannot make products that pose high risks of harm to patients. Unfortunately, sometimes those standards are not followed, and serious harm results.
