Every area of medical law has its risks, but none more so than medical products.
This part of medical law covers everything from syringes to pacemakers; breast and hip implants to prosthetics. It also covers things such as medicine trials and blood transfusions.
Claims can also arise from the use of rehabilitation or mobility systems that fail.
The law in this area is clear and applies to producers, suppliers and importers of medical products.
The claim may well be brought in Negligence but this will often be secondary to a claim under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
We are regularly instructed on medical product cases of the following types: -
- Failure of implants including breast implants
- Failure of contraceptive systems
- Failure of diabetic monitoring equipment
- Failure of medical systems such as hoists and power assisted wheelchairs
If you have been affected by a failed medical product it is important that you seek specialist advice.
This is also a particular area of specialism for Jerard Knott, who has advised on many successful and high value medical and general product cases.
