Almost £600m in Xarelto compensation settlements

medical

Xarelto compensation settlements have been agreed in the sum of $775m (which is almost £600m) for some 25,000 cases being pursued in the U.S.

The Injury Lawyers have been fighting for justice for UK users of the medication, that’s also known as Rivaroxaban. Although the settlement is for the U.S. only, we’re pleased to see it has happened.

The settlement has been agreed without any admission of liability from the two companies behind the drug, Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson. They reportedly maintain that the drug is fine for use and strongly deny the allegations that have been made against them. That includes previous allegations of a “cover-up” where important information was reportedly withheld from regulators.

Compensation advice for elbow implant problems

compensation

You may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you’re suffering with elbow implant problems. If they’re related to the recent Stryker recall, there may also be a case to make.

When a medical implant or device fails, a patient can be left suffering with severe complications. There may be a need for revision surgery and lengthy treatment to correct any additional issues.

As a law firm, we have a lot of experience fighting for the rights of people affected by medical implant recalls and problems. The Stryker recall initiated from the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) came into force in February 2019. Affected devices – rHead Radial Head and the Uni-Elbow prosthesis – are to be quarantined and no longer used.

Criticism over new vaginal mesh guidelines

The new vaginal mesh guidelines introduced by NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) have already been hit with heavy criticism.

A lack of focus on the long-term impact to women who have suffered complications, as well as a lack of clarity on the use of non-surgical methods, have been questioned.

The guidelines appear to accept that there’s a lack of knowledge about the long-term impact, yet there are thousands of women who could tell their stories. As a law firm who are representing women whose mesh procedures have failed, we can tell you from experience just how bad it can be.

The Injury Lawyers investigating valsartan side effects

drugs

The Injury Lawyers are investigating certain valsartan side effects and the potential links between the recall and the possible contamination issues.

In 2018, a Class 1 Medicines Recall was initiated by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). This is understood to be Europe-wide, and is for the products supplied by Actavis Group PTC (now Accord) and Dexcel Pharma Ltd. The recall came into immediate effect, and healthcare organisations were asked to quarantine unused lots of the blood pressure meds right away.

The issue is quite a worrying one. The potential contamination that’s understood to have stemmed from the manufacturing process could be linked to cancer.

Advice about the Bard mesh recall

surgeon claims

You may have heard about the Bard mesh recall that has been initiated this month, together with the announcement that the company is ceasing its mesh operations in Europe.

C.R. Bard (Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD)) announced the recall together with confirmation that they’re no longer producing and distributing vaginal mesh in European markets to treat POP (pelvic organ prolapse) and SUI (stress urinary incontinence).

Steps have been issued for those in the healthcare industry to follow in order to quarantine any remaining products. A patient information leaflet has also reportedly been distributed.
