We – The Group Action Lawyers – have been fighting for the rights of people pursuing emissions compensation claims since the start of the ‘dieselgate’ issues in 2015.

Thousands of people have signed up for cases with us since 2015 against a range of vehicle manufacturers embroiled in recalls and alleged scandals. This includes the Volkswagen cases (please note we can no longer take claims forward for that one), the Mercedes cases and others. In recent weeks, a large number of new clients have signed up for cases with us, and we are still taking new claims forward on a No Win, No Fee basis for Mercedes and Nissan/Renault owners.

Mercedes emissions compensation claims

Mercedes emissions compensation

We are taking forward Mercedes emissions compensation claims in the same way that we have represented thousands for cases against Volkswagen, Porsche and Jaguar.

When we first took action against VW for their huge emissions scandal back in 2015, we strongly suspected that they would not be the only manufacturer to be investigated. Since then, other vehicle makers have been involved with legal actions and have initiated recalls around the world over emissions irregularities.

As we suspected, the VW scandal was the tip of the iceberg.

We are taking claims forward for Mercedes (Daimler) owners whose vehicles have been subject to recalls. We can represent clients on a No Win, No Fee basis for claims.

Drugs recall compensation claims advice

liver disease drug warning

Drugs recall compensation claims can form into group and multi-party actions when users have suffered as a result of a problem with the manufacturers or the suppliers.

The impact for the victims in these kinds of cases can, of course, be severe; especially if the drugs being recalled are for serious or even life-threatening conditions. Even the fact that there is a recall can be worrying for the patients who are told to stop taking their medication and seek replacements.

When these kinds of recalls happen, they can lead to group action compensation claims if the impact on the victims is severe enough. Groups could range from just a small number of victims who were unlucky enough to be affected, to thousands of people who may have suffered.

Patient information leaflet errors

experts warn of buying diet pills online

Patient information leaflet errors can, in the worst-case scenarios, cause severe problems for those who have used the wrong medication or used meds incorrectly due to the error.

When these scenarios happen, a recall will usually be launched and announced via the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Information about the recall will normally be distributed so that patients can be made aware, but this won’t always stop an adverse incident from occurring.

With this in mind, here’s a little advice about what to do if you have suffered harm as a result of following the incorrect information for medication or a product in general.

Stanmore hip implant recall

The Stanmore hip implant recall published earlier this year relates to the potential for some Modular Femoral Heads being contained in the incorrect packaging.

The urgent Field Safety Notice issued by Stanmore Implants – who are a part of the Stryker Corporation – outlines the issue and the potential dangers. It may be that patients could be fitted with the incorrect implant heads if the problem is not identified by surgeons and medical staff at the time of an operation.

As with most medical implant problems, this recall is a serious matter, and we have seen the damage that can be done to patients when things go wrong with hip implants.

Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist

A medical device alert has been issued and published by the MHRA in relation to Ethicon surgical staplers, which have reportedly caused injury to some patients.

It’s understood that there’s a risk that some of the devices manufactured from March 2018 have not been working properly. Reported issues include the devices misfiring or failing to fire the staples during surgery. The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) say that there has been increased complaints of malformed stables with some devices being returned.

With this issue involving invasive surgery, the alert is one that needs to be taken incredibly seriously.
