How common are claims?

Over recent years, claims from failed medical devices and implants have increased dramatically, as more and more medical devices and implants are recalled by manufacturers around the world. Unfortunately, by the time a recall occurs, thousands of people could be suffering from the adverse effects of the device or implant. Sometimes these effects can be severe and create the need for further medical treatment, and even lead to a profound disability.

If you believe you’re the victim of a defective medical device or implant or have been recommended or treated with an incorrect medical device or implant for your condition, you can speak to one of our specialist medical negligence/ product liability lawyers and get advice about what to do. It’s a free call, so it makes sense to get advice and find out where you stand.

What can I claim?

Making a claim for compensation for a defective medical device or implant can be complex, as often these claims are often made directly against the highly resourced manufacturers of the product. This can mean the claim comes under the relevant consumer protection legislation rather than the medical professional that implanted or recommended them for use. In some instances, however, a claim can also be successfully made against the medical practitioner that recommended or implanted the device or implant, based on a breach of his or her duty of care. The practitioner must exercise reasonable skill and care in implanting the device or implant, choosing an appropriate device or implant for your symptoms and condition, recommending a safer alternative or advising you of the risks and implications of implantation. For more information, you could also read our failure to warn and informed consent page, which may also apply to your potential claim.
