Defective products & medical implants
During our busy daily lives we all come into contact and use many different types of products – they help and improve all our lives. As well as products we use in our personal day to day routines, specific and highly technical medical products are used to improve our quality of lives, and implants now form a vital part of the restorative surgery many of us will have that help us live happier and pain-free lives as we get older. It is not just the ageing population that faces the need for implants, at different stages of our lives we will need or choose to undergo surgery that requires the use of such products.
The consequences when a product fails, can be serious. Pryers know that it is not sufficient to prove that a product, device or implant has failed. It must be shown that it was less safe than an individual was entitled to expect and that it caused injury or harm. In medical areas, this can be particularly difficult in cases where the devices are innovative, or in situations where failure cannot be prevented entirely. It can be particularly difficult to prove that the outcome would not have occurred if a different device had been used or if the device had worked as expected.
