Breast surgeon Ian Paterson – hundreds of potential victims yet to be contacted

doctor talking to female patient

Despite the fact a year has passed since the independent review into breast surgeon Ian Paterson and his treatment of patients, it is understood that hundreds of his former patients have yet to be contacted in the ongoing patient recall. It may be that approximately 6,500 of Paterson’s patients have been contacted, but a total of 11,000 may still need to be reviewed.

Paterson is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being convicted of wounding with intent. His unnecessary practices, such as mastectomy procedures that were not required, were not only dangerous, but also incredibly traumatic for the victims, leaving them with physical and mental scars.

We believe that it is not only Paterson who should be held accountable – the hospitals in which he worked in have a lot to answer for too. It is shocking that such treatments completely bypassed hospital management, and it suggests that systematic failings allowed Ian Paterson to get away with his harmful actions. As such, we believe that there are many of Paterson’s patients who may still be able to make a medical negligence claim. If you have been contacted by the hospital involved, or if you believe you have been affected, do not hesitate to contact us for advice on your potential claim.

Product liability compensation claims

updated mom hip replacement advice

Product liability compensation claims is an area of law that we specialise in and work in quite a lot, and we can represent our clients for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.

One of the reasons we’re often involved in these kinds of cases is because they’re commonly linked to large consumer actions. As a firm, we specialise in consumer actions and complex litigations, and a great deal of the large injury actions involve products; often, medical products.

This doesn’t mean that we don’t represent victims for singular incidents as well, because we do! Here’s some advice about how we may be able to help you with a product liability case.

PIP implant claims – French Court of Appeal says TUV Rheinland NOT liable
