Can you win your pelvic mesh claim?

lawsuit justice

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.

Supporting women injured by mesh

pelvic mesh support

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.

Losses and expenses claims for vaginal mesh implants

Costs, Losses and Expenses

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.
