Defective or faulty medical equipment can cause serious and long-term complications and prolong your recovery time.
For example, if you’ve been given a defective joint in a hip replacement procedure, you may need corrective surgery which will involve a hospital stay, time off work and cause you pain and discomfort that could have been avoided.
Other types of defective medical equipment
Other medical products that can become defective include:
- Replacement knee joints
- Breast implants
- Heart valves
- Contraceptive devices
- Monitoring equipment
We can help you find out if you could be eligible to claim. After a short consultation with one of our friendly legal services advisors, they will let you know if they think you may be able to claim compensation, and explain how we can help you through the next steps.
I was receiving private care, can I still claim?
You’re entitled to claim compensation for injuries or suffering caused by defective medical products regardless of whether your treatment was given by a private or an NHS healthcare provider.
