Supporting women injured by mesh

pelvic mesh support

Despite their wide usage across the health service, women began reporting complications associated with vaginal mesh implants several years ago, with some suffering excruciating pain and injury. Some of the complications have had profound impacts on patients’ lives, meaning they can be unable to move properly or go to work. With many having to simply live with this irrevocable damage, we are supporting women injured by mesh to claim the compensation they deserve.

Designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, the use of mesh implants has since been restricted by the NHS, meaning they can only be implanted in cases where there are usually no other options available. Nevertheless, many women are still suffering the repercussions of the devices, which have been used for around 20 years.

If you believe you have been caused unjust and avoidable injury as a result of vaginal mesh implants, you may have a claim to make. We understand how sensitive this issue can be, and we are happy to offer free, no-obligation advice regarding your mesh complications.

Losses and expenses claims for vaginal mesh implants

Costs, Losses and Expenses

With many patients experiencing severe, life-altering complications as a result of vaginal mesh implants, the criticism of the treatment has been mounting in recent years. Many victims’ testimonies reveal the profound pain and suffering they have been forced to endure, demonstrating that the emotional impact for those affected can be severe. However, there can also be practical, financial implications for victims meaning that, when a compensation claim is made, it is also possible to obtain a pay-out to cover losses and expenses.

As experts in medical negligence and group action claims, we believe that medical professionals and product regulators may have a lot to answer for regarding the use of vaginal mesh implants. It appears that many patients were unaware of the risks involved in the treatment when they agreed to it, meaning that they may have been poorly advised by their medical team.

While the effects of mesh implants can be largely irreversible, a compensation claim can help to achieve justice for any harm caused. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice if you think you may have been affected.

Victims subject to poor advice about risks of vaginal mesh

medical care

With safety concerns dating back to over a decade, there are ongoing controversies surrounding vaginal mesh implants. They are still in use, despite known complications and calls to ban the treatment. Countless patient testimonies have condemned the implants for being unfit for purpose and causing debilitating pain, and much of the outrage can stem from poor advice about risks that some women received prior to treatment.

Trusting in the openness of their doctors, it appears that many women were not properly informed about the potential consequences of undergoing this controversial procedure. If you consider yourself a victim of inadequate advice about mesh treatments, you may be eligible to claim compensation with us, and you may be eligible for No Win, No Fee legal representation.

Permanent problems from vaginal mesh

mesh implant safety

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.

Vaginal mesh and the risk of organ perforation

multiple revision surgeries required

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.

Should there be a vaginal mesh ban?

In November 2017, the health watchdog NICE issued a recommendation for a vaginal mesh ban. The month before, the government opposed calls to ban the treatment.

These two opposing viewpoints provide just one example of the controversy that still surrounds vaginal mesh implants, which have faced criticism both in the UK and across the world.

The mesh implants, which are used to treat issues such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), have widely been condemned by women who have undergone the treatment, many of whom now have irreversible complications and constant pain.
