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.

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.

Product liability claims advice

Product liability is when a product you have purchased from a supplier is not safe to use or has not been made with the proper care and attention that it should have been – and as a result this has caused an injury to you as the consumer.

The law doesn’t just cover physical things though; any service you purchase also comes under the same regulations, such as purchasing a taxi ride or hiring a builder. These still should be supplied with proper care and attention. A Product Liability or Service Liability claim can be successful when the supplier of the product has been found to be in breach of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1992.
