Product Liability Claims in a Medical Context
Nova Scotians rightly expect that the services provided to them by provincial healthcare providers will be safe and free from unknown risks. We rely on our doctors, nurses, and other care providers to give us the finest quality of care. After all, they’re the experts.
Unfortunately, sometimes medical or pharmaceutical products, devices, or drugs do not work as well as they should. When this happens, the consequences can be devastating. Faulty healthcare products have the potential to harm a lot of people and may even cause death in extreme cases. Often, the effects are long-lasting and are difficult to fix.
Oftentimes getting the necessary information to advance your medical product liability case provides very challenging. The Defendant may be reluctant to provide information. Others may be wholly evasive or rely on bland product information. One main issue which may arise, especially in a surgical context, is the existence of a signed waiver. A waiver may be a stumbling block for your case – but only if the adverse outcome was only a contemplated risk and the outcome was arrived out despite quality medical care.
If a medical device or a drug harmed you or had undisclosed side effects, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses you sustained. Medical product liability cases are exceptionally complicated, and you owe it to yourself to have an experienced and dedicated lawyer on your side.
