Compensation for incontinence after mesh removal


Incontinence after mesh removal is one of the many problems that women can be left with when pelvic mesh has gone wrong and needs to be taken out.

Whether a full removal has been achieved, or where only a partial removal was possible, this complication can arise. Incontinence is one of the reasons as to why mesh can be fitted in the first place, but it can be made worse after mesh removal.

As lawyers representing women for these complex cases, we may be able to help you.

Claiming for incontinence after mesh removal

If incontinence after mesh removal is a problem that you have had to deal with, or are still suffering from, we can take this into account for a compensation claim.

When you make a claim for vaginal mesh compensation, you can be entitled to claim for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You can also be entitled to recover losses and expenses. If you are left with incontinence,  this can be accounted for in a case. Whether it has reverted back to the way it was before,or has been made worse, it’s a factor that we can take into account.

Some women have been left with this as a worsened complication after failed mesh has been removed. It can be bad enough when pelvic surgery has not worked, but to be left with even more problems and complications can be devastating.

When can you claim?

You could be entitled to make a claim for pelvic mesh compensation if the mesh you have been fitted with has failed. If problems and complications have developed or worsened after the initial surgery or after removal surgery, this is when you may be eligible to succeed with a legal case.

Incontinence after mesh removal is a problem that many women have been left with, and it’s something that we can take into account. We can use expert medical reports from independent consultants to be able to prove the case.

Whether the incontinence is short-term or is permanent, we can make sure that any compensation package you could be entitled to is reflective of what you endure.
