Specialist product liability
solicitors at Leigh Day have extensive experience in representing large numbers of people who have reported severe medical problems after being fitted with medical devices that have failed. People who have suffered from health problems because of the failure of a medical device, such as a replacement hip or knee joint, can find that their lives are utterly devastated because of their injuries and, in rare cases, these injuries can be fatal.
The Consumer Protection Act 1987 was brought into English law to provide protection to individuals who have been injured by a medical device if it can be proved that the product was defective and that it was responsible for the injuries suffered.
Such devices can include:
- Replacement hip joints
- Replacement knee joints
- Heart devices, such as pacemakers, valves and defibrillator leads
- Cosmetic implants
- Corneal implants
- Contraceptive devices
- Medical apparatus used in the treatment or follow-up care of patients
