ASR hip claims

Why choose Leigh Day?
We act exclusively for claimants who have been injured or treated unlawfully by others. We take on the fight for the consumer and endeavour to get answers, even if it means going up against the biggest corporations. 

Experience
We have a specialist Consumer Law and Product Safety department which has extensive experience and in-depth of knowledge in this area.

We are the lead solicitors in the ASR and metal on metal hip litigation and act for over 1000 clients with metal hip components that have failed early.

Transparency
We know that people can be concerned about the costs of bringing a claim and that’s why we are totally transparent about any fees from the outset. We represent most of our clients on ‘no-win no-fee’ agreements. 

Recognition
Our Consumer Law and Product Safety department is ranked in Band 1 in both Chambers and Legal 500 with many of our lawyers ranked as leading individuals in this field. 

Leigh Day is accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the majority of the solicitors in the ASR team are accredited APIL litigators. 

‘Pre-eminent in its field’, Leigh Day’s practice has particular strength in disputes relating to medical devices and white goods.  – Legal 500 

Relationships 
We recognise that, for most people, bringing a claim isn’t just about compensation. That’s why we can put you in touch with client representatives from different geographical locations who can be a “friendly ear” and provide practical advice about living with early ASR failure.

We have been handling ASR hip claims for a number of years and so have developed long-standing relationships with leading experts from a range of disciplines meaning you can be confident the independent evidence we obtain is of the highest standard.  

We offer a holistic service from legal representation to referral to companies that work with us to provide, for example, access to early rehabilitation and benefit protection advice.

Service
Within the department, we have a dedicated ASR team with vast experience of handling ASR claims. Our solicitors pride themselves on maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of all medical and legal issues related to ASR hip failures. 

We know that sometimes people can be anxious about being overlooked in a big group action. We act for over 600 claimants, but we pride ourselves on providing a friendly and first-rate personal service. If you decide to work with this, a solicitor will be directly appointed to work on your claim and you will have their direct contact details.
