Care and support claims for vaginal mesh surgery complications

There are a number of risks involved with the use of vaginal mesh or tape, some of which can leave victims with permanent, catastrophic injuries. If you need help or support to look after yourself after surgery, you could be eligible to make care and support claims as part of a No Win, No Fee legal case.

This can cover you if you need professional assistance or help from friends and family.

Vaginal mesh implant compensation is designed to put the victim back in the position they would have been had they have not suffered negligent treatment in the first place. In some cases, this is not possible, and victims will need a great deal of help, medical care and assistance. We can help victims in this situation to make sure that care and support claims are factored into a legal case. This can mean that we can claim for any past and future costs associated with such expenses.
