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.

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.

Can you make an Oculentis claim?

surgeon claims

You may be eligible to make an Oculentis claim with our No Win, No Fee representation as part of the action for compensation that we’ve launched.

If you’re one of the hundreds of people who have been affected by the Oculentis recall, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Patients who are suffering with opacification (bling spots / cloudiness in the vision) may be required to have further surgery. The corrective procedure is to replace the previous lens.

Any need for further surgery as a result of a medical device can allow a patient to claim personal injury compensation. As an area of law, we have helped many people in the past with these very problems, and we’ve already launched legal action following the Oculentis recall.

Dietary supplement dangers

heart surgery survival rates

Do we know enough about dietary supplement dangers?

A recent study suggests not. Hundreds of dietary supplements reportedly contain potentially dangerous ingredients.

In an age where many are keen to look and feel good, dietary supplements are a common part of modern life. Many people use them specifically to avoid using drugs, but research has indicated some of them contain the very drugs people may be trying to avoid.

There are risks to using such ingredients, particularly when use of them isn’t being monitored. In cases of dietary supplement dangers that stem from a lack of monitoring, it can come down to people simply not knowing.

Online retailers and dangerous electrical appliances

Dangerous Product

According to a recent study, the online retail world is rife with fake items and dangerous electrical appliances. Consumers may be at risk of injury and property damage.

It’s thought that as many as one-in-three consumers may have bought a fake or counterfeit electrical item online. Popular sites like amazon and eBay are said to be full of them.

Third-party sellers who are out to dupe UK consumers appear to be getting away with it. Consumers are at risk of electric shock and fires caused by fake and dangerous electrical appliances bought online.
