Experience In Medical Negligence Claims From Irwin Mitchell

The procedures for testing medical products are extremely rigorous and it can take years for products to ever reach a human patient. Unfortunately, even with extraordinarily stringent checks, some faulty medical products do slip through the net – with distressing results for both patients and their loved ones.

Cases like the recall of De Puy hip implants show how defective medical products can end up being used in patients, affecting thousands of victims. With a clear responsibility to patients, those who manufacture medical products, drugs and medicines have a legal duty to ensure their products are safe for human use. Where that responsibility is not met, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
