vaginal mesh law team

The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers is a specialist team of lawyers who focus on claims for women who have suffered as a result of transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape surgery.

We have been helping women who have suffered a range of complications, including some with lifelong problems, since 2013. We are more than prepared to take on some of the biggest organisations in the sector to fight for the rights of the clients that we represent.

There are roughly three main areas in which we can help women make a compensation claim. Firstly, if the transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape fitted is defective, there can be grounds for a claim. Next, we can also look at any surgical or treatment errors that may have occurred, such as when implanting the mesh or tape, that could lead to discomfort or damage to the surrounding tissues and organs. Finally, we can also assess if the individual had inadequate advice about the risks of surgery and all the alternative options available.

You may recall the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust pelvic mesh issues involving former patients of Dr Angamuthu Arunkalaivanan that triggered a significant recall.

It’s an issue that dates back from a few years, so most patients will have received their recall letters and any additional steps that needed to be undertaken should have been done so. However, if some patients experience problems a long time after the recall notification, there may still be time left to claim.

We must stress that you must contact our team ASAP to determine if you are still in time, though. But, since we have resolved legal action that we have taken for this issue, we wanted to remind those who were affected about their rights to pursue compensation.
