In recent years, the complications that can arise from vaginal mesh implants have become more well-known. Despite the link between mesh implants and harmful injuries becoming so clear-cut, we suspect there may still be hundreds or even thousands of affected victims who have yet to seek the justice they deserve. If you have been affected by medical negligence, it is important that you claim as soon as you can to avoid missing out on the compensation you could be entitled to.
Despite their approval by medical product regulators, vaginal mesh implants have proved to be unsafe for a worrying number of patients. Vaginal mesh has been used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse for years, and yet some medical professionals have largely failed to highlight the severity of the risks of this course of treatment.
The testimonies of affected women have shown just how devastating vaginal mesh complications can be. We want to ensure that as many of these victims as possible can access the justice they deserve, which is why it is important to warn potential claimants that there may be deadlines restricting their chance of being able to claim.
