It is important to pursue your pelvic mesh compensation claim to allow you to receive some form of justice for what it is that you have had to go through.
If you are going to be left with lifelong problems and complications, it is important that a legal case is launched to be able to support you as best as we can. This is the way in which you could obtain some form of justice for what you have had to go through, and we are here to help you now.
What is a pelvic mesh compensation claim?
A pelvic mesh compensation claim is a legal case where you are seeking damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused by being fitted with a surgical mesh device if something has gone wrong. You can also look to include any losses and expenses in the case as well.
Whilst we cannot turn back the clock and undo what has happened to you, the law can entitle you to seek justice by way of a legal claim. We, as specialist vaginal mesh lawyers, represent people who have suffered, and we pursue their cases for them. If we think that there are reasonable grounds to seek compensation, we can offer to take a claim forward on a No Win, No Fee basis. This can ensure that anyone who needs help but cannot afford private lawyers are able to instruct us without the worry of having to pay if the case does not succeed.
How does a claim work?
The first step to pursuing a pelvic mesh compensation claim is establishing liability. Whether this is pursuing a GP, hospital, or a consultant for poor advice or care, or pursuing a manufacturer of a device directly, we can make the case that you have been the victim of negligence.
We can build the case and look to prove that you have been the victim of negligence. If you have, that is when you can be entitled to receive compensation for what has happened.
If liability is established, we then need to work out how much you can be entitled to receive. The claim will typically be formed from General Damages and Special Damages. General Damages covers any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. This is to compensate you for the hurt caused and, whilst it may not undo the damage done, it is a way to obtain some form of justice.
The second part of Special Damages is just as important, as they can cover losses and expenses. Key ones could be lost earnings from time off work, or the cost of private surgery and treatment if this will help. We are able to justify this in some cases, especially if you are suffering significantly as a result of the vaginal mesh you have inside you.
We can prove the extent of the suffering and loss using an expert report from a medico-legal consultant. This can also be used to support any losses claims which can be evidenced with certain documentation as well.
