It’s important to distinguish between the worldwide lawsuits and what’s going on here in terms of any mesh implant UK class action cases.
The way that we’re dealing with claims here in the UK is that we’re pursuing individual personal injury compensation claims for victims who have suffered problems and complications. Due to jurisdictional differences, we can only represent victims in England and Wales.
Importantly, we can offer No Win, No Fee representation. This is important because, although there has been widespread success in the US, things are different over here.
Is there a mesh implant UK class action lawsuit?
We’re taking claims forward individually, so there isn’t a mesh implant UK class action lawsuit that we’re involved with so to speak.
The fact of the matter is that there are many different ways in which people can claim, and there are many different time frames as well given that vaginal mesh surgery is still in use here in the UK. The basis of claims can vary greatly as well. For some, it can be a claim where the risks of complications were not properly addressed, and in other cases, it could come down to the inadequate skill of the surgeon.
Others can be product liability claims against manufacturers for alleged defects with mesh implants.
Will there be a class action lawsuit?
Whether there will be a formal mesh implant UK class action that we take part of remains to be seen. At present, we continue to focus on individually representing victims who come forward and instruct us to represent them for a claim for personal injury compensation.
This means that we’re pursuing cases based on individual merit, and we’re using case-specific medical evidence to support claims, and evidence suffering and loss. For many of our clients, there may be too many variables when it comes to the different hospitals or surgeons being pursued, or the different legal basis for the claims.
What’s important for you to know is that, irrespective of whether there will be any formal mesh implant UK class action we engage in, you can be entitled to make a claim. If you have suffered complications arising from the use of vaginal mesh, we may be able to represent you for a legal case.
