There are very strict standards and tests which medical products need to meet before they can be used on a patient. Unfortunately, however on occasions problems can arise which result in a patient being injured or their condition becoming worse as a result.

Examples of defective medical product cases include:

  • Metal-on-metal hip replacements
  • Surgical and vaginal meshes
  • Joint replacements
  • Breast implants
  • Pacemakers/Defibrillators
  • Contraceptive devices
  • Hair dyes and chemical treatments
  • Defective drugs
  • Contaminated blood products in cases of hepatitis C

If your injury was caused by a faulty medical device you may be able to claim in negligence and/or under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

Your claim could be against the hospital where you underwent the surgery, the manufacturer of the product, the importer, or the supplier.  We will identify the correct organisation to whom the claim should be directed.

If you think you have been adversely affected or injured by defective equipment or medicines please contact our expert team of lawyers who will be happy to advise.

 

Accident and Emergency

Our Accident and Emergency departments provide an invaluable and often lifesaving service. With an estimated 21 million admissions to A&E departments every year, occasionally things do go wrong. A&E staff are often under pressure to make prompt diagnosis in circumstances which can be very challenging. When there are failures of care, the impact can be devastating for patients and their families.

Medical errors in accident and emergency medicine can arise in many ways. We have experience of handling a wide range of cases relating to A&E negligence, including those involving patients treated by paramedics, as well as A&E hospital doctors and nurses.

We will fully investigate the circumstances of your case and aim to make the process as easy as possible, guiding you through every stage. We know that often you want to understand why the A&E system failed you, to ensure the same thing doesn’t happen to someone else.

If you have suffered an injury or illness because of poor management, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose you may be able to recover compensation.

Get in touch with our friendly, expert team for a free initial chat to discuss your case.

Examples of accident and emergency claims

  • Delays in ambulances reaching patients 
  • Failure by paramedics in treating patients correctly
  • Failure to correctly interpret test results such as scans, x-rays and blood tests
  • Misdiagnosing a medical condition
  • Failure to operate when necessary
  • Failure by junior staff to seek the opinion of a consultant or specialist doctor
  • Discharging a patient from hospital too soon
