What is the process when you make a claim with AJB Stevens?

Once all information is gathered we will work to seek compensation through appropriate channels. If your case does go to Court, we will be with you every step of the way.
Is My Doctor Responsible?
AJB Stevens have identified, and continue to investigate the possibility of claims against various surgeons who failed to obtain informed consent from their patients in accordance with acceptable medical standards. By bringing individual actions rather than class actions, claims can be brought not only against the regulator or the manufacturer, but also against each doctor who did not perform to the standard that would be expected by other peer professionals.
