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.
The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers, a trading style of Your Lawyers, specialises in medical and consumer action law cases and boasts a strong and large portfolio of multi-party, group actions and individual cases, some of which involve some of the biggest negligence incidents to have taken place in the UK and around the world.
We currently represent thousands of claimants and have launched over 50 different multi-party and group action claims.
Women have reported suffering complications from the use of transvaginal tape and transvaginal mesh since 2008. Despite this, these devices are still being used today. In July 2018 the NHS took steps to reduce the use of transvaginal mesh and transvaginal tape, limiting its use to essential cases. This may have led to a drop in usage of the devices, but women are still having the procedure done and are still suffering problems.
We are fighting for justice for these victims.
We have years of experience in the complex area of medical negligence and product liability law, and we are often one of the first law firms to take action when new incidents arise. In 2016, we were the first in England and Wales to initiate High Court action in the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal, one of the biggest legal actions ever seen in the UK. We represented one of the larger caseloads of victims involved in the UK PIP Breast Implant scandal Group Litigation Order also, recovering over £1.3m in damages to date.
We have been appointed to the Steering Committee for some of the biggest UK actions as well.
