Defective Medical Products or Medication (including Thalidomide)
We live in a world where technology and pharmaceutical advancements are continually pushing the boundaries of what we can expect in terms of medical products or medication. These products and medications go through a series of highly stringent tests before being used in patients. However, this doesn’t mean that errors don’t sometimes occur in the licensing and utilisation of these products and drugs. For example, recent history has seen certain hip implants, heart valves, corneal implants, contraceptive devices and medicines (e.g. Thalidomide) all to have negative implications.
Manufacturers and Pharmaceutical companies have a legal duty to ensure their products are safe to use. Where this duty of care has not been met, we may be able to help you claim compensation. Sometimes it is difficult to know who is to blame and therefore to be held accountable – we can advise you based on the strength of our experience and knowledge of medical negligence.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
