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.

Pelvic mesh compensation amounts

lawyers

Despite their approval by the MHRA (Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), pelvic mesh implants have been linked to significant and, at worst, life-altering complications in a worrying number of the patients who have received them. Many who have been affected by negative consequences caused by these devices could be eligible to claim considerable pelvic mesh compensation amounts for the huge impact on their lives.

Used to treat ailments like urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women, the implants have been found to provoke significant pain and suffering, leaving many wondering how this questionable treatment has been allowed to continue. In many cases, the use of pelvic mesh implants could constitute medical negligence, making the victims eligible to claim compensation. It is simply unacceptable that so much preventable harm has been caused, so contact us to receive legal advice if you are one of the victims.

$3.9m pelvic mesh settlement in US lawsuit

court judge success

In May last year, West Virginia reached a settlement with medical product manufacturer Johnson & Johnson after a state lawsuit was launched against the company over their marketing of pelvic mesh products. The $3.9m pelvic mesh settlement concludes a consumer protection case launched by Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in September 2019.

The case was filed because the representation of the risks and effectiveness of the mesh implants was regarded as allegedly misleading, a perspective that is not isolated to the US. In fact, a significant number of women here in the UK have reported suffering painful and debilitating complications as a result of the vaginal mesh products, due to risks that many were not informed about before undergoing the implant surgery.

At The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers, we can represent those who have suffered adverse consequences and complications of mesh implants. We hope that the success of this US lawsuit can be replicated for UK clients also.
