If you have been affected by the Sodium Valproate scandal, we may be able to launch a No Win, No Fee claim for personal injury compensation for you.
Sodium Valproate is an anticonvulsant that is used to manage conditions such as epilepsy and bipolar disorder, as well as being used for women who suffer from migraines. The Sodium Valproate scandal stems from a lack of consent and advice about the substantial risks that an unborn baby can be exposed to when the mother has been taking it.
Anyone who has been affected by the scandal could be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation now.
There can be many ways in which medication can become a problem: from the incorrect drugs being provided, to the incorrect diagnosis leading to issues not being resolved. There can also be problems that stem from the medication products themselves, which can be related to contaminated batches, to the incorrect contents or erroneous instructions being provided.
If you have suffered due to problems with medication, and the issues have arisen from negligence, that is when we may be able to represent you for a compensation claim.
Following the initial allegations of alleged malpractice against former consultant Daniel Hay, the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation went on to inform more women of their potential involvement in the ongoing review of his patients. To date, the doctor has reportedly been found to have “unnecessarily harmed” 8 women who had undergone significant surgery under his care.
Further developments emerged toward the end of 2020 that reportedly pushed up the total to 382 of the gynaecologist’s former patients being implicated in the investigation. It is understood that the majority of these women reportedly have no need to worry about immediate health concerns, according to the trust. However, given the length of his service at the hospital, we would not be surprised if the investigation further widened as it already has done so far.
Any women who have suffered at the hands of the gynaecologist may be eligible to claim compensation if negligence has been involved. If more victims should be identified, we are here to help them pursue recompense for the harm inflicted upon them, and eligible clients can benefit from No Win, No Fee legal representation.
