Leigh Day road shows to meet victims of alleged failed hip replacements

Lawyers to host one-to-one sessions for people concerned about metal on metal components

Metal on metal hip implant

18 June 2015

Law firm Leigh Day has arranged four roadshows to meet people affected by metal on metal hip components which they allege have failed prematurely.

The roadshows in Middlesbrough, Manchester, Bristol and London are to update clients on the on-going group claims as well as to meet people who think they may have a claim but have not yet begun legal action.

Leigh Day currently represents over one thousand people affected by the metal on metal hip replacements and are the lead lawyers in the country’s group actions.

Many of those taking legal action allege that they have suffered significant pain and injury caused by the metal-on-metal implants and may have had to undergo early revision surgery. The Claimants are seeking to recover damages from the manufacturers of these medical devices for their injuries.

Each session will feature various eminent orthopaedic surgeons, who will deliver a presentation on issues in relation to metal on metal failures.

Those making a claim will also receive further insight into the claims process, how the claims are valued and the next steps in the litigation followed by a one-to-one session with their specialist legal advisors.  

EVENT DETAILS

  • Middlesbrough : 16 June 2015 - 11am start

  • Manchester : 18 June 2015 – 11am start

  • Bristol : 23 June 2015 – 11am start

  • London session 1: 25 June 2015 – 10am start

  • London session 2 : 25 June 2015 – 2pm start


Michelle Victor, a partner in the Consumer Law and Product Safety team at Leigh Day, said the firm was hosting the session to ensure that clients were ‘kept abreast of developments’, and also so others who have failed metal on metal components can seek advice and support.   

She said: “It is essential that anyone with a failed metal on metal implant seeks urgent legal advice. It is important that there is public awareness about the strict time limits in which to pursue a product liability claim arising from a failed metal on metal component. If this time limit is not adhered to it may not be possible to pursue a claim.

"If anyone thinks they have been affected by one of these devices, we would urge them to contact us on the number below so that we can arrange individual one-on-one sessions with one of our specialist advisors.”

Please contact the Leigh Day team on 0800 689 7230 or postbox@leighday.co.uk for further information or to request a meeting.
