Peter Todd, Consultant Solicitor of Scott-Moncrieff & Associates, is acting for a large group of Claimants in a claim against Astra Zeneca seeking damages for injury (thrombosis with thrombocytopenia) caused by the Astra Zeneca Covid vaccine.
The claim is being pursued on a no-fault basis under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 on the basis that the vaccine was a defective product in that it was not as safe as consumers generally were reasonably entitled to expect.
The Claimants in the group all suffered serious injury from blood clots caused by the vaccine including fatal injury, clots in the brain, lungs, heart, limbs and throughout the body. This caused strokes, seizures, cardiac arrests, amputations of limbs and other severe injuries.
The manufacturers were indemnified by the UK government against such claims because of the lack of thorough testing of the product and the risk of such events.
