Learned Intermediary Must Be Sufficiently Warned

01 Feb 2002

The "learned intermediary" doctrine does not shield a medical device manufacturer from liability where the manufacturer has failed to sufficiently warn the medical profession of hazards. The adequacy of warnings to the profession is a question of fact, not law, for the jury to decide. Hansen v. Baxter Healthcare Corp., No. 89043, 2002 WL 93106 (Jan. 25, 2002).
