A group action claim for compensation could ensue for issues in respect of contaminated products, and anyone who has come to harm could be eligible to pursue a legal case.
Group Actions and Multi-Party Litigation matters are what we specialise in. Having recovered millions of pounds in damages for clients in civil cases for many years, and with thousands of happy clients having settled their cases, our experience speaks for itself.
Group action compensation for contaminated products
Anyone who has been harmed by contaminated products could be eligible to pursue personal injury compensation for any suffering and loss that has been caused. If the contamination is widespread and affects many people, it may be that a group action or a multi-party legal case ensues, where people can join their claims together to pursue the justice that they deserve. Claims can still be treated individually for the purposes of the impact and suffering, but it can be much more efficient to bring legal proceedings together when many of the issues are similar or the same.
Depending on how the claims proceed, we may be able to reach an easy out-of-court settlement and there may be no need for any formal issuance of legal proceedings. In some cases, we may need to fight for your right to justice, so we may form the claims together into a Group Litigation Order (GLO) which is practically the same as the US Class Actions that you may have heard of.
We can use an array of experts to verify that the contaminated products have caused harm to people, as well as calling on our long years of expertise in this area of law.
Medical product compensation claims
When it comes to compensation claims for contaminated products, one of the worst-case scenarios can be where the products are medical implants or devices. If such devices or implants are fitted into people, the risks could be severe, and even life-threatening. Patients could be left with significant suffering and losses, and it is vital that they are able to access justice for what they have had to go through.
One of the most infamous examples in recent times is that of the PIP Breast Implants Scandal that arose earlier last decade. Implants did not contain medical-grade silicone and instead contained industrial-grade silicone which was deemed to be potentially dangerous. We have recovered over £1.3m in damages for victims affected by that scandal to date, with some claims still ongoing. Unfortunately, all our deadlines have passed for new cases and we are not looking to take any additional claims forward at this time.
