Drugs and medicines go through very rigorous testing regimes before they even reach a human test subject – let alone being given as prescriptions or made available for sale over the counter. But even with such strict standards, there are cases where drugs don't work the way they're supposed to.

If you've been injured, become ill, or had a condition get worse, because a drug has had serious unexpected side effects or has failed to work because of a manufacturing defect, then our solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.

We may also be able to help you if you've become ill or suffered injuries while participating in a clinical trial. There are specific guidelines around whether or not you can claim, and our experienced defective drug lawyers have helped many clients get the compensation they deserve for this in the past.

In the past we have supported clients through claims involving a number of different types of drug, including:

During the claims process, we'll work closely with you to handle every aspect of your case, as well as ensuring you're able to access all the medical care and support you need to assist with your rehabilitation following an injury or illness.

Our personal injury team has a great deal of experience with medical negligence and product liability claims, and our exceptional knowledge and caring staff has seen us ranked in the top band of law firms for defective product compensation claims by Chambers & Partners.

We'll talk you through what's happening with your claim in clear and simple terms. Our experience of these types of claim means that we know what needs to be done to help you achieve the best possible compensation settlement.

The majority of the claims we handle are on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that there's nothing for you to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim isn’t successful*.

If you have any questions, or are interested in making a claim, call us today on 0800 056 4110 for a free initial consultation about your case, or contact us online and we'll get back to you.
