Defective Medical Products

Lawyers specialising in defective medical device, drugs & medicine supplies

When undergoing any medical procedure, you should be able to expect not only that the procedure is carried out with reasonable skill and competence by the medical professional involved, but also that any medical products, appliances, drugs and/or medication being used are safe, effective and have as few side-effects as possible. So when products fail, it can be particularly devastating. They can cause serious health problems, or in extreme cases, even death.

If you believe you have suffered due to a defective medical product or that you might have a medicines claim, contact Longden Walker & Renney’s clinical negligence solicitors on 0191 5666 500. You can also use our no obligation online enquiry form to tell us what happened, and we’ll get back in touch.

You may even be covered by our No Win No Fee agreement, also known as a conditional fee agreement. This means there will be no financial risk to you if the case is unsuccessful.

Cases such as those involving the DePuy hip replacement failure and subsequent recall show how far-reaching the consequences of defective medical products can be, with thousands of people forced to seek hip replacement compensation after being affected.

Our clinical negligence team have experience in representing clients in a large variety of product liability cases. Some of the more common types of clinical negligence claim involve:

  • Defective medical devices, including hip joints, knee joints and heart valves;
  • Cosmetic implants, such as PIP breast implant claims;
  • Drugs;
  • Medicines;
  • Devices used as part of personal care or medical treatments, such as contact lens solutions, laser hair removal systems or chemical treatments;
  • Products used in the course of treatment such as latex gloves and other surgical instruments.

It is the responsibility of any manufacturing company of these products to ensure that they are effective and have as few side effects as possible.

If a medical device or product is found to be defective, the Consumer Protection Act (1897) enables individuals to recover compensation from the manufacturers of the device or product for any injury, death and financial loss caused by the defect.
