Defective Medical Products

As a patient, you rely on the skill, competence and care of your doctors; but you also expect the medical products they use to be safe and effective with as few side-effects as possible. The manufacturers of these products are responsible for ensuring this is the case.

What happens if a medical product fails or is defective?

When a product fails, the effects can therefore be devastating. Defective medical products can cause serious health problems or, in extreme cases, even death. The impact of this can be traumatic and long-lasting, leaving you unable to get on with your life. An example is the DePuy hip replacement failure and recall in 2010, which forced thousands of people to seek compensation after being affected.

As specialist defective medical device lawyers, we understand the need to handle medical device liability cases sensitively and compassionately. Our specialist clinical negligence team will take the time to listen to your story, and fight with dedication for the compensation you deserve.

Medical products cover any product used for personal care or to treat health problems.

Some of our more common defective medical device liability cases involve:

  • Defective medical devices such as hip replacements, knee joints and heart valves;

  • Cosmetic implants such as PIP breast implant claims;

  • Equipment such as latex gloves, surgical instruments, laser hair removal systems and chemicals;

  • Drugs;

  • Medicines.
