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.

Sodium Valproate claims for compensation

experts warn of buying diet pills online

Sodium Valproate claims for compensation can be pursued for damages for any injury and suffering that has arisen from the use of the drug.

The risks of using the drug during pregnancy can be significant and can lead to birth defects and serious developmental problems in infants. Unfortunately, consent and the explanation of risks to mothers has been an issue, leaving many not knowing that their unborn child could be at risk when taking the drug.

We are offering free, no-obligation claims assessments and you can speak to the team here now.

Compensation for revision surgery in Group Actions

medical device recall

Claimants engaged in group and multi-party legal actions can be entitled to recover compensation for revision surgery where this is an applicable factor.

As Group Action Specialists (hence our name – The Group Action Lawyers) we have recovered substantial damages to cover this element of a legal case where it has applied in the many group actions that we have launched. Victims of negligence can be entitled to recover such damages as a claim is designed to help them as much as is reasonably possible, so corrective treatment is sometimes a must.

For anyone who needs this factored into a legal case, we may be able to help you now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

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.
