Medical product claims for compensation

patient

The Group Action Lawyers has a leading team of experts who have been representing victims in medical product claims for compensation for over a decade.

Patients who suffer due to defective and/or dangerous devices and medicines can, in some cases, end up with serious or permanent injuries. When it comes to medical devices, any form of invasive surgery has risks, so any need to repeat surgeries and remove and/or remove and replace devices can lead to huge risks in some cases. It can also lead to unnecessary suffering, and this is a factor that people deserve to be compensated for.

Our history when it comes to medical group actions is extensive, and our team is always happy to provide free, no-obligation advice to anyone in need of us.

Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust maternity scandal

Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust

Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust has been in the media recently over the maternity scandals and the condition of care and treatment provided for over a period of two decades.

The findings of the independent review are tragic and terrible, and we are left questioning how the scandal had been allowed to go on for so long. There can only ever be the hope that the conclusion of the investigations brings some form of closure to those affected, but nothing can change what has already been done. Some victims have been left with lifelong and permanent, serious injuries, and others did not survive as a result of negligence and inadequate care.

Preventing medical implant problems is key for the future

hernia mesh compensation claims

It may sound obvious when we talk about the importance of preventing medical implant problems before mass scandals occur, but it is a key point to raise given our line of work.

As specialist Group Action Lawyers, we have represented thousands of people engaged in group and multi-party actions. Some of those have been for medical implant scandals, including the PIP Breast Implant Scandal, the Vaginal and Hernia Mesh issues, and the Metal-On-Metal Hip Implant cases. What this means is that we have seen first-hand just how badly patients can suffer when things go wrong, and we do not want to see a repeat of such scandals and the awful consequences that ensue. Whilst it can be difficult to prevent problems like the PIP Breast Implant cases where deceit was involved, preventing medical implant scandals through better testing and warnings is a development to push forward with.

It is easy to look back in hindsight and see what could have been done differently. But it is important to look to the future to make sure that there are no repeats of mistakes that could have been prevented.

Data breach group actions for accessing medical records inappropriately

Data breach group actions is a particular area of law that we have a great deal of experience in, and we represent thousands of clients who are currently engaged in dozens of them with us. For eligible clients, we work on a No Win, No Fee basis, and we are pursuing actions right now where the breach stemmed from medical records being inappropriately accessed.

Cyberattacks targeting medical devices: a cause for concern?

pelvic mesh inquiry vaginal mesh implants concerns

The idea of cyberattacks targeting medical devices is not so much a theory nowadays, but more of a real cause for concern that needs to be addressed.

As specialist Group Action Lawyers, we are used to seeing the harm caused to real people when things go wrong on a large scale. Whilst we are always here to help, prevention is always better than having to deal with the aftermath. As such, hacks and how they apply to an increasingly digitised world is something that we all need to be wary of; especially when it comes to the healthcare sector.
