Vaginal mesh surgery complications
Since the use of vaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), thousands of women have suffered complications from the surgery and are living with irreversible pain and damage.
The complications involve a list of serious injuries such as internal injuries, nerve damage, prolapsing and incontinence, with some women having relapses of the conditions the mesh was meant to treat.
Vaginal mesh surgery has been used since 2008 and, worryingly, is still being used today in some cases. This is despite the thousands of women reporting the irreversible damage it has caused.
The use of mesh implant devices has dramatically declined in recent years, but only in 2018 did the NHS put a pause on their use in most cases. Whilst this was a step in the right direction, it does not mean the use of vaginal mesh has stopped.
Making a lost earnings claim
If you are suffering from vaginal mesh surgery complications, one of your biggest worries may be loss of earnings. If you are in physical pain and have had to take time off work, or you cannot work at all, you could be eligible to make a lost earnings claim. If your suffering is irreversible and this has left you with lifelong damage, you could eligible for a lifelong lost earnings claim which could result in a large amount.
In general terms, the more you suffer, the more a compensation claim can be worth. As well as claiming for General Damages (for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused) you may also be able to claim for Special Damages (any losses and expenses, including for wages).
