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.

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.
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.
Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, pelvic mesh implants have been in use for around 20 years, with tens of thousands of UK women having the devices implanted. In recent years, the dangers of vaginal mesh emerged into the public consciousness, with an alarming number of women reporting severe and often lifelong complications. We have been compelled to act against this injustice, so if you come to us for legal advice, we will aim to win your pelvic mesh claim to ensure you are fairly compensated for the harm caused.
Now, pelvic mesh implant operations have been under pauses and greater scrutiny here in the UK, but they can still be carried out under certain circumstances. Nevertheless, we believe that more must be done to establish how this scandal was allowed to happen, and to ensure that women are protected in future. By making a compensation claim, you can ensure that your suffering does not go unnoticed.
Despite their wide usage across the health service, women began reporting complications associated with vaginal mesh implants several years ago, with some suffering excruciating pain and injury. Some of the complications have had profound impacts on patients’ lives, meaning they can be unable to move properly or go to work. With many having to simply live with this irrevocable damage, we are supporting women injured by mesh to claim the compensation they deserve.
Designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, the use of mesh implants has since been restricted by the NHS, meaning they can only be implanted in cases where there are usually no other options available. Nevertheless, many women are still suffering the repercussions of the devices, which have been used for around 20 years.
If you believe you have been caused unjust and avoidable injury as a result of vaginal mesh implants, you may have a claim to make. We understand how sensitive this issue can be, and we are happy to offer free, no-obligation advice regarding your mesh complications.
With many patients experiencing severe, life-altering complications as a result of vaginal mesh implants, the criticism of the treatment has been mounting in recent years. Many victims’ testimonies reveal the profound pain and suffering they have been forced to endure, demonstrating that the emotional impact for those affected can be severe. However, there can also be practical, financial implications for victims meaning that, when a compensation claim is made, it is also possible to obtain a pay-out to cover losses and expenses.
As experts in medical negligence and group action claims, we believe that medical professionals and product regulators may have a lot to answer for regarding the use of vaginal mesh implants. It appears that many patients were unaware of the risks involved in the treatment when they agreed to it, meaning that they may have been poorly advised by their medical team.
While the effects of mesh implants can be largely irreversible, a compensation claim can help to achieve justice for any harm caused. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice if you think you may have been affected.
