Vaginal mesh, while still in use for things like the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, has caused severe complications for thousands of women. As a treatment that is designed to be permanent, the mesh can be difficult – or even impossible – to remove. As such, many patients are forced to live with permanent problems relating to their health and well-being.
Those who have experienced complications often had no idea that such risks were involved, which means that there can be ethical issues with regard to the treatment they have been given. For patients who have been subjected to this questionable surgical procedure, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim if a medical professional is found to be at fault.
The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers are strong opponents of this risky treatment. We are here to help anyone who has fallen victim to the devastating complications of vaginal mesh.
Potential vaginal mesh complications can be numerous. From reduced mobility to a relapse of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, they can have life-altering effects on a person’s life. One of the most damaging complications can be organ perforation, whereby the damage can extend into other organs in the area.
In some cases, vaginal mesh surgery is not fit for purpose, either causing a relapse of the condition it is supposed to treat, or causing more pain and damage than the patient was experiencing before the treatment. Some women have been kept in dark about the extent of the risks, and the poor or insufficient advice of medical professionals means many could be entitled to claim compensation.
At the Vaginal Mesh Lawyers, we are here to provide women with advice when they have been let down.
You could be eligible to claim thousands of pounds in compensation where you have suffered from nerve damage from vaginal mesh surgery.
There can be many problems and complications that women suffer from, but this can be one of the most severe. Nerves do not like to be disturbed, so any injury to nerves can cause irreversible damage and a great deal of permanent pain and discomfort.
It is important that anyone affected by pelvic mesh issues is able to access some form of justice if they are able to, which is what we do.
In some pelvic mesh compensation cases, you could be eligible to claim for private treatment costs as part of a No Win, No Fee legal case.
There are a few ways that you could claim for such costs. If certain conditions are met as part of a claim for compensation, these costs can be factored into a claim, and we have outlined this below for you.
Treatment can be an incredibly important part of a legal case given how severe problems and complications of vaginal mesh can be.
If you have undergone multiple revision surgeries following a vaginal mesh procedure, this can be included in a claim for pelvic mesh compensation with us.
We can give you some brief guidance about how we can account for any additional suffering associated with having to undergo multiple procedures. We can also give you some guidance about how we approach valuing pelvic mesh cases as well, and what you could be entitled to claim for.
Our team is always happy to speak to you and offer you free, no-obligation advice about your options as well.
Incontinence after mesh removal is one of the many problems that women can be left with when pelvic mesh has gone wrong and needs to be taken out.
Whether a full removal has been achieved, or where only a partial removal was possible, this complication can arise. Incontinence is one of the reasons as to why mesh can be fitted in the first place, but it can be made worse after mesh removal.
As lawyers representing women for these complex cases, we may be able to help you.
Pelvic mesh erosion is one of the many problems and complications that some women can suffer from when their vaginal mesh or sling goes wrong.
Both the mesh and the surrounding tissue can be subject to erosion, and in either case, the harm to the patient can be severe. Because the vaginal mesh is designed to be permanent, any kind of movement or failure of the device can be difficult to resolve. If mesh needs removing, there can be cases where it’s simply impossible to remove – or fully remove – the device.
This is why claims for personal injury compensation when things go wrong with pelvic mesh are so important. Women’s lives can literally be turned upside down forever, and we must do all we can to help.
You can be entitled to make a claim for compensation for pelvic mesh removal, and we may be able to represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Whether the operation is fully or partially successful, or not successful at all, you may have a valid legal case. We represent a number of women making claims for compensation arising from pelvic mesh problems, and the pain and trauma of removal and revision procedures can be an integral part of a claim.
Some women may need to undergo multiple operations, and it may be difficult to get the best help with the NHS. There are private options potentially available in some cases which is a part of the service that we can offer.
The issue with long-term pelvic mesh complications is that they can be permanent and severe, and there’s still too little evidence being properly assessed in many people’s view.
When the revised NICE guidelines were published last year that allowed the continuation of this controversial procedure, there was a suggestion that there was an absence of long-term knowledge. However, this has been strongly challenged on the basis that there are thousands of women worldwide who have been suffering serious mesh implant complications for years, yet their voices appear to not be heard.
We act for women who are suffering from irreversible damage from a vaginal mesh procedure. Although we can make sure that women are entitled to justice with a claim for personal injury compensation, we believe far more needs to be done to address the underlying problems.
Some patients can suffer internal injuries from pelvic mesh surgery. Such injuries can be caused by the device itself failing, or during surgery for implantation or removal.
In some cases, women who suffer these kinds of vaginal mesh complications can be entitled to justice. You could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You may also be able to recover damages for any losses and expenses as well.
If this applies to you, here’s some advice about your options for justice and how we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
