Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, pelvic mesh implants have been in use for around 20 years, with tens of thousands of UK women having the devices implanted. In recent years, the dangers of vaginal mesh emerged into the public consciousness, with an alarming number of women reporting severe and often lifelong complications. We have been compelled to act against this injustice, so if you come to us for legal advice, we will aim to win your pelvic mesh claim to ensure you are fairly compensated for the harm caused.
Now, pelvic mesh implant operations have been under pauses and greater scrutiny here in the UK, but they can still be carried out under certain circumstances. Nevertheless, we believe that more must be done to establish how this scandal was allowed to happen, and to ensure that women are protected in future. By making a compensation claim, you can ensure that your suffering does not go unnoticed.
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.
Medical negligence cases can be highly complex, and it can take years to establish where the blame lies, and how much compensation the claimant should receive. As medical injury cases can be highly sensitive, they must be handled thoroughly, so the timeframes for a claim can be lengthy. Nevertheless, we know how important it is for vaginal mesh claimants to see justice done, which is why we aim to work efficiently to get the process moving swiftly.
However, when proceeding with a vaginal mesh claim, it is important to be aware that the claim process could take months or even years. We will need to explore every avenue of your potential negligence claim to back up our case to make it as strong as possible. This is vital if we are to have the best chance of winning the case and succeeding with the maximum possible compensation amount.
Having specialised in medical negligence claims and pelvic mesh cases for many years, our team is well-equipped to handle your case with the care and sensitivity that it deserves. It is unacceptable that so many patients have fallen victim to such harmful vaginal mesh complications, so we want to seek justice for as many claimants as possible.
Severe complications have been associated with mesh implants for several years now, with many patients forced to endure irreversible and harmful consequences. Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, the UK medical products regulator continues to approve the use of the implants, despite thousands of women reporting horrifying complications. If it emerges that those affected by complications were victims of medical mesh, they could be entitled to significant damages as mesh compensation values can be high.
If you have encountered complications as a result of a mesh implant, it will likely have come as a horrible shock. Most women would never have agreed to the treatment had they have known the risks, which is one of the reasons as to why a medical negligence claim could be made.
There are many factors to consider when making a mesh compensation claim. As specialists in medical negligence, we know how to evaluate all the circumstances of a case in order to value a claim as best as possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.

There are roughly three main areas in which we can help women make a compensation claim. Firstly, if the transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape fitted is defective, there can be grounds for a claim. Next, we can also look at any surgical or treatment errors that may have occurred, such as when implanting the mesh or tape, that could lead to discomfort or damage to the surrounding tissues and organs. Finally, we can also assess if the individual had inadequate advice about the risks of surgery and all the alternative options available.
