We recovered £175,000 in a product liability claim for a faulty hip replacment that had to be revised as it caused severe back pain.
Samantha Critchley acted in the claim that arose out of early failure of a total hip replacement in June 1992, revised in 1996.
After investigation and negotiation, liability was apportioned equally between the defendants. The evidence was that the need for a revision hip was brought forward by 10 years.
The shortening Miriam's hip resulted in back pain which meant that the claimant had to give up work. Miriam also suffered a psychiatric injury. Causation and quantum were hotly disputed.
The case settled in the sum of £175,000 which was at the highest end of the range of settlements achieved in the 3M litigation cases.

Helping UK victims of terrorism abroad
Prior to 2012, British citizens and their families affected by attacks overseas were not eligible for financial support from the British government via the CICA because they sustained their injuries outside the UK. Jill Greenfield pursued a seven-year campaign to have the law changed and for British victims of terrorism abroad to be treated the same as victims of attacks in the UK.
