Misbranding of Medical Devices

It’s crucial that medical device manufacturers properly and clearly label their products before shipping them. The Food and Drug Administration has strict rules regarding the labeling of medical devices. If manufacturers put a misleading label on their product, innocent people can get hurt.

At The Cochran Firm, our personal injury lawyers have seen how medical devices can hurt people when they are improperly or misleadingly labeled. Under federal law, the labels on medical devices must:
  •          Not be misleading or false in any way
  •          Contain wording that the FDA has required
  •          Contain accurate instructions for proper use of the device
  •          Not provide dosage level instructions or recommendations that can cause health problems


Even when the product is not a defective medical device a misleading label can result in a patient or doctor using the product incorrectly. When a medical device is used improperly, significant pain and injury can result.

Medical device manufacturers have serious obligations. We rely on their products to keep us healthy. When their labeling results in you getting hurt instead, our personal injury lawyers can help.


If you’ve been hurt by an improperly labeled medical device and you need a personal injury lawyer with experience in the field, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
