Contaminated products

Here at Moore Blatch, we understand the emotional stress having major surgery can cause.

Any significant injury that occurs during these procedures can raise several complications from both the legal and the medical standpoints.

Our clinical negligence solicitors understand your needs are unique, and can provide our clients with a service which puts their best interests at the heart of the work we carry out. While all medical products must go through rigorous testing before being used, faults and negligence can still occur.

  • Contaminated blood products – While all blood is tested in labs before it’s used the test can never be 100% accurate, it is therefore possible for infected blood to enter the system.

  • Heart valves – Faulty or contaminated heart valves can result in infection, excessive bleeding or blood clotting.

  • Defibrillators – If faulty, these can send false signals, resulting in wrongful shocks to the heart.

  • Joint replacements – Implants can be placed at the wrong angle or depth or the wrong size, a faulty product will not last.

  • Stents – It’s important that products such as this are properly sterilized to reduce the chance of the body rejecting them. Stents should be coated with a substance to reduce chance of this happening.

If you have been affected by a faulty or contaminated medical product, Moore Blatch could help you claim compensation. 

Our specialist team have extensive knowledge with some formerly working as doctors, nurses or midwives, putting us in a excellent position to understand your claim from both the medical and the legal standpoints.

Our entire team is knowledgeable of the investigation process and techniques used to gather evidence in a personal injury claim.
