Compensation for multiple revision surgeries
You can be eligible to claim compensation for multiple revision surgeries as part of a No Win, No Fee legal case.
When you claim compensation, you can be entitled to receive damages for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused by the need to have further surgery that would have otherwise been unnecessary. The pain and suffering for having to undergo the additional procedure, and the recovery period afterward, can be accounted for. If you have to endure this more than once, the claim can reflect this as you will likely suffer greater than you would have had you have just required one revision procedure.
How we value claims overall
Whether you needed multiple revision surgeries or not, a claim for vaginal mesh compensation will normally be for:
- General Damages: for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity we touched on above. This can be damages based on the extent and severity of any suffering you endure. This can also account for how your usual life has been impacted. If you suffer long-term or permanent problems, this can also be accounted for too;
- Special Damages: for any losses and expenses. This could include lost earnings from time off work in the recovery period after a revision procedure. If you required multiple revision surgeries, you can be eligible to claim the losses for each procedure.
Private treatment or even private surgery may be beneficial for you. It is possible to include this as part of a legal case, and if we can or not may depend on factors such as whether the opponent has accepted liability, or if they agree to fund the costs of private surgery. If it is required, and we can prove with evidence that it is required, this is where we may be able to include the costs for this.
