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.

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.

Cyberattacks targeting medical devices: a cause for concern?

pelvic mesh inquiry vaginal mesh implants concerns

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.

Hernia mesh compensation case – we can help

hormonal contraceptive cancer study

Despite their use in patient treatment for a long time, hernia mesh implants have become a huge cause for concern after many patients have come forward to report complications resulting from the use of mesh. According to some estimations, as many as tens of thousands of patients who have undergone mesh surgery in recent years could face complications further down the line. In a hernia mesh compensation case, people could pursue compensation claims for any suffering from harmful consequences from hernia mesh, and it may be that they were victims of medical negligence.

Prior to recent shocking revelations, many patients who agreed to undergo surgery to implant hernia mesh may have had little to no knowledge of the potential dangers associated with the medical device. Where doctors may have offered the treatment with little regard for potential pain and injuries, they may have breached their duty of care, and their actions could constitute medical negligence.

If you are among those who have been affected by mesh implants, we know that the pain and suffering may have taken a severe toll on your life. We are here to support you through this difficult time, and to give you the chance to claim the compensation you deserve.

The difficulties of vaginal mesh removal

pelvic mesh inquiry vaginal mesh implants concerns

As stories of vaginal mesh complications continue to emerge, many of those who have suffered from the implants are seeking treatment to lessen or stop the pain and injuries they have faced. However, the difficulties of vaginal mesh removal can mean that some of the harmful consequences are, unfortunately, irreversible.

Vaginal mesh implants, used to treat things like urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, have been the subject of controversy for many years. While approved by the UK regulator, the MHRA, the issue of serious complications can be shocking, with many women speaking out about the complications that they have suffered. In response, we have taken on claims from many women affected by the implants, who we believe are eligible to claim compensation for the harm they have been caused.
