Defective Medical Products
There are very strict standards and tests which medical products need to meet before they can be used on a patient. Unfortunately, however, on occasion 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
- 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. Our experienced team, including former Morgan Jones Pett experts Sara Westwood and Simon Bransby, 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.
