Claim for internal injuries caused by vaginal mesh

pelvic mesh support

As medical devices designed to be implanted as a long-term solution, vaginal mesh implants should be used with safety in mind. Using medical devices inside the body is never something that should be taken lightly at all. Many patients that are presented with this treatment option may assume that the materials and structure of vaginal mesh implants are intended to prevent injury risks, but not all such devices have been successful in this regard. Those who have been hurt or wounded by vaginal mesh may be able to claim for internal injuries that they have suffered from, and we may be able to help you now.

Unfortunately, recent years have seen a wave of reports in respect of the potential health complications of vaginal mesh, among which there have been a range of different internal injuries that people can suffer from. Such injuries can also have their own side-effects that can provoke serious difficulties in the everyday lives of the affected patients.

In our view, it is worrying that these devices were allowed to pass supposedly stringent safety regulations, and that many doctors have recommended this course of treatment to their patients. It is for this reason that we are helping victims to pursue compensation claims to account for any injustice.

Protrusion injuries caused by vaginal mesh

Surigcla mesh problems

Since the dangers of vaginal mesh began to emerge, many different kinds of complications have been reported. Many of the complications associated with vaginal mesh involve significant pain and injury, with protrusion injuries sometimes being one of the more serious problems.

Protrusion can occur when vaginal mesh erodes or cuts through the vagina and affects surrounding tissue, and sometimes even nearby organs. The complication can demonstrate a failure of the mesh implant to stay in place, and it can be capable of causing severe pain for those affected. Protrusion can also lead to further side-effects and can lead to permanent or long-lasting problems and damage, so this is a very serious issue indeed.

Prolapse from mesh – one of many potential complications

multiple revision surgeries required

Vaginal mesh is a type of medical device specifically designed to treat female health problems, including stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Unfortunately, for some women, these mesh implants have proved to be completely unfit for purpose. Not only can vaginal mesh cause intense pain, but it could also erode through vaginal tissue and other organs, meaning that prolapse from mesh could also occur.

It is completely unacceptable that so many mesh implants have proved incapable of serving the purpose for which they were designed. Some women’s lives have drastically changed in the wake of mesh complications, and the suffering must not go without justice for victims.

As specialists in medical negligence, we want to use our expertise to help victims of vaginal mesh to achieve the justice they deserve. It may be impossible to reverse the health problems you have suffered, but we can assert your rights using the law to ensure those responsible are held accountable. To find out more about making a claim, you can contact us today or leave your details in our online form to schedule a call-back.

Vaginal mesh claim for reduced mobility

claim for reduced mobility

Associated with incredibly painful and harmful complications, vaginal mesh can have a life-altering impact on patients’ lives. The treatment has been used for many years to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, but for some patients it has worsened their quality of life rather than improving it. In fact, some have found themselves unable to get around and perform daily tasks. Anyone who has been affected in this way may be able to make a claim for reduced mobility.

Before having vaginal mesh implanted, few women would have thought it had the potential to leave them unable to walk. Many of the risks appear to have been hidden or underplayed, but as patients began to come forward, the full scale of the scandal started to reveal itself. It has since been alleged that vaginal mesh implants have not been subjected to sufficiently rigorous testing, yet the MHRA (Medical and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) continues to approve the use of the devices in some cases.

If we believe that your mesh complications arose as a result of medical negligence, you may be able to claim compensation. It is unacceptable that such a dangerous device has been allowed to cause irrevocable harm in the cases that it has, and we want to support victims to achieve the justice they deserve.

Vaginal mesh complications can leave women feeling suicidal

mesh implant safety

Despite their long-term approval by medical product regulators and the NHS, vaginal mesh implants have been associated with a number of incredibly harmful and debilitating medical complications. Unfortunately, the side-effects of mesh implants do not always stop at physical pain and injury, as they can also have a severe impact on victims’ mental health. In some cases, it can provoke depression, and can even leave women feeling suicidal.

With such severe consequences at stake, it is unacceptable that vaginal mesh implants have been used so widely across the NHS for so many years. In fact, we believe that many of the affected women may have been victims of some form of medical negligence. This could be where their doctors chose to recommend mesh surgery when there were better alternatives, or where people were harmed due to surgical mistakes, or where there has been a failure to warn patients of the risks of vaginal mesh implants. In some of these cases, victims may be eligible to make compensation claims.

Even with our years of experience in medical negligence claims, we have seen few treatment scandals of this scale and nature. We know that nothing can reverse the harm and trauma caused to victims in some cases, so we want to ensure that you receive the financial support you deserve to help you manage your condition if this is all that can be done for you.
