Claims involving medical products

Claims involving medical products

Michael is a direct access barrister who has dealt with claims involving medical products for over 15 years. These medical negligence claims are complx and Michael has dealt with a number of them. 

Claims involving medical products can be challenging. The causes of injury can be complex and prognosis can be tricky. It may take skilled analysis and application to extract an early admission of liability from the practitioner responsible. These claims are really product liablity claims and not clinical negligence at all. 

Michael in many cases has been able to secure such an admission on behalf of his clients and therefore secure an early settlement for his client. Michael worked extensively on metal on metal hip replacement claims which were alleged to have caused infection in many of those who had them installed.

In addition the valuation of a claim involving medical products can run into millions of pounds and it is important to use someone who has experienced these heads of claim already.
