If you have suffered an illness or injury as a result of a defective medical implant, you may be able to make a claim for compensation against the parties responsible.
The majority of medical implants used throughout Scotland to treat a variety of medical conditions are of a very good standard, and most patients do not suffer from any side effects or issues from the implant. However, as has been widely reported recently, some people can suffer from a number of health problems after having a medical implant.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a medical implant, or were not properly advised of the risks involved, you may be able to make a claim to compensate you for your pain, suffering and loss.
Claiming compensation for a defective medical implant will usually fall under one of the following categories:
- the medical procedure was not carried out properly, i.e. you have contracted an infection, or the implant was incorrectly fitted, or you have been left disfigured
- a faulty implant was inserted
- the medical professional carrying out the procedure did not properly advise you prior to the procedure of any side effects or health problems that you could suffer as a result
- the wrong sized medical implant being inserted
The most common devices that can cause medical problems include:
- Vaginal mesh implants
- Hip and knee implants
- Contraceptive implants
- Cosmetic implants, such as breast implants
- Heart devices
- Corneal implants
Despite there being strict guidelines in place in relation to medical products and how they are tested, implants can still be defective, or fail to meet the appropriate standards. Unfortunately, this can result in ongoing health problems, with some issues being life-threatening.
Our lawyers have a significant amount of experience in handling medical implant liability claims, and we are able to provide you with the advice and support you need when looking to make a claim for compensation. Our goal is to make the claims process as simple as possible for you. We are also able to assist with any access to medical care, and rehabilitation services that you may require.
If you have suffered from health problems because of the failure of a medical device, such as a replacement hip or knee joint, you may be entitled to compensation for such problems. There is a three-year period limit in which you need to raise legal proceedings to recover damages caused by a defective medical implant resulting in physical or psychiatric injury. It is therefore essential that if you have experienced any side effects from a defective medical implant inserted by a medical or any other healthcare professional you seek expert legal advice as soon as you can.
