The Supreme Court recently handed down a ruling regarding defective medical devices that may have serious ramification for the victims of Florida defective medical product injuries. A Florida defective medical device injury can be life-altering and extremely painful; injuries suffered from devices that were negligently manufactured—such as an artificial hip implant laden with bacteria or a painkiller patch that leaks and exposes users to harmful levels of dangerous drugs—can even result in death.
The Supreme Court ruled that a medical device manufacturer, despite if one of their devices is later proven to be defective, is not liable for damages to a harmed individual if the device was originally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This ruling comes as a huge surprise to most Americans, who expect our courts to be able to help us if we fall victim to a Florida defective medical device injury.

A North Carolina company has issued a nationwide recall of heparin and saline pre-filled syringes because people in several states have become seriously ill due to a bacterial infection found in the syringes. The syringes are used for a variety of home medical uses, such as cleaning out catheter tubes.
The bacterial contaminant is known as Serratia marcescens, which according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “could present a serious adverse health consequence that could lead to life-threatening injuries and/or death.”
The bacteria can potentially cause serious Florida personal injury and death.
