Defective Products

What you can do

Those who manufacture or supply medical products have clear responsibilities to patients. When those responsibilities are neglected, defective medical equipment or inappropriate medication can have a devastating impact on the lives of patients and their families. If an injury or illness has occurred because of a product used in treatment a claim can be made under the Consumer Protection ( NI ) Order 1987.

Issues we can help with

Cases of defective medicine or medical products often result from negligence in the manufacture, testing or supply of a product. Recent cases involving faulty medicines, equipment or medical products include:

  • Corneal implants
  • Contraceptive devices
