Dear Mr Huntley

Thank you for your enquiry to our firm. Unfortunately we are unable to assist you on this matter as we no longer deal with Myodil claims.

The litigation settled in July 1995. To bring yourself within the litigation it was necessary to show that a claimant suffered from lumber sacral adhesive arachnoiditis and that this arachnoiditis was attributable to Myodil myelography. I put it this way, because if the arachnoiditis was for example close to the place of surgery, then it was impossible to ascertain whether the arachnoditis was attributable to the Myodil myelography or to the invasive procedure, namely the surgery. Unless clients could satisfy a strict approved neurological and radiological criteria they could not participate in the litigation. The Court set down very strict guidelines for joining the litigation, and the time passed many years ago. An attempt was made by latecomers to join. This was rejected.

We are precluded from taking on any claimants post settlement.

You may wish to contact Evill & Coleman, Solicitors, 0208 789 9221, 113 Upper Richmond Road, London SW15 2TL, who may be able to assist you. Alternatively you may wish to contact the Law Society and ask specifically for solicitors that deal with Myodil claims.

You may also wish to contact Glaxo, the manufacturers directly, however, I doubt if you will be favourably received but you can at least try.

If I can be of any assistance in the future please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely




I am following up on this info ,NZ law stems from english law so the case law made in UK gives direction to action over here
