Leigh Day is unique in the size of its large and growing team dedicated to product liability, or defective products, and is ranked as the No. 1 firm in this field by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners legal directories.

The team’s specialist product liability solicitors and lawyers have expert knowledge in the area of defective products and the team has gained an enviable reputation for taking on challenging cases and achieving excellent results with claims for compensation relating to a range of defective products.  These include claims relating to medical devices such as heart valves, orthopaedic implants, drugs and other consumer products, especially defective hip prostheses.

The team has had many considerable successes in recent years and is set to maintain its dominant position as the leading practice in the field of product liability.  We are currently representing clients in claims relating to DePuy's ASR hip replacement components and Medtronic's Sprint Fidelis defibrillator leads. The team also successfully represented a group of people who became seriously ill after being involved in a clinical trial at Northwick Park. The team's group action experience covers products such as Allergan breast implants, and contaminated blood products.

The team also has specialist expert knowledge in obtaining compensation for clients who have been injured because of faulty consumer goods, including white goods such as fridge freezers, cosmetic products, sports equipment, or who have contracted food poisoning in the UK or on holiday abroad.  The consumer law team works for groups of people affected by such cases as the VW emissions scandal.
