Slater & Gordon maintains a leading role in the PIP litigation which should come to trial in October 2014 against those clinics still in existence. We have special responsibility on the steering committee of firms acting for the thousands of women affected by the PIP scandal to deal with issues relating to the liability of credit card companies to pay compensation.
Any woman who has not yet joined the litigation against a clinic is almost certainly too late to do so now.
However, for women who paid for their surgery either in part or whole using a credit card, we are very pleased to continue to accept instructions and we should obtain full compensation. In fact we now act for several hundred women who will obtain millions of pounds in damages. Hundreds of thousands of pounds have already been paid to clients of Slater & Gordon affected by the criminal actions of PIP’s owners and staff.
We have negotiated a scheme with all banks so that compensation can be recovered quickly and without the need for a medical examination in most cases. We are happy to act on a no-win no-fee basis.
If you believe you used your credit card to fund surgery please contact us as soon as possible.
If you are concerned about your PIP implants or any health issues associated with these implants you should seek medical advice.
