Medical Products

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) aims to ensure that all medical products and devices are fit for purpose. As such, all medical items sold in Scotland must comply with the Medical Devices Regulations in order to receive the CE mark. Unfortunately, however, patients and consumers do still sometimes suffer harm as a result of faulty or unsafe products and devices. Thompsons’ personal injury solicitors have helped clients claim for faulty and defective devices including silicone breast implants, metal-on-metal hip replacements, defective blood products and vaginal mesh implants.

The medical negligence solicitors at Thompsons Scotland can help you claim compensation for negligence related to metal debris caused by a hip replacement, for tissue and bone damage, for a loose implant, or for the development of a pseudo tumour.
