Defective medical devices: Warnings not written on the label

Companies in Tennessee and elsewhere that manufacture medical devices are required to inform potential patients of the possible risks associated with their products. However, some might not always receive all the necessary information about a device prior to making a decision, especially when these concerns are concealed. Those who suffer serious harm due to defective medical devices may wish to know about their options for seeking restitution, especially if they were unaware of the level of risk involved.
