Some patients can be left unable to walk from having had pelvic mesh fitted. This can completely change everything, and it is important that we – as specialist Vaginal Mesh Lawyers – are able to do everything in our power to help.
Although we may not be able to change what has happened, and what patients may be left suffering from in the future, legal action can help. It can ensure that a victim receives some form of justice for what they have had to go through, and a claim could also factor in private treatment where applicable.
Despite being used as a form of treatment for many years in the UK, vaginal mesh implants have been associated with incredibly harmful and debilitating complications for a long time now. The only hope of reversing these side-effects can be further surgery in some cases, but difficult mesh removal procedures are not easily available due to the expert knowledge and skill required to perform such an operation. In such cases, victims may be eligible to claim compensation to cover the cost of private surgery, and we may be able to assist with this in some cases.
These medical devices were conceived with the aim of treating problems like pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, but have proved to be unfit for purpose for many patients. The complications that can be caused by vaginal mesh can be irreversible, as the implants are designed to be permanent. Corrective or removal surgery can be possible in some cases, but it is not easy.
If you have been harmed by vaginal mesh that has arisen from negligence, you should not have to pay to treat a condition that has been caused through no fault of your own. A claim for the cost of private surgery could, in some cases, form part of a wider medical negligence claim to account for the injustice you have suffered at the hands of medical professionals.
If you have suffered as a result of negligent aftercare in relation to pelvic mesh surgery, you could be entitled to claim compensation now with No Win, No Fee legal representation.
A lot can go wrong with pelvic mesh procedures, and the impact in terms of complications and how they can cause permanent problems remain a significant cause for concern. Despite what we know about how badly things can go wrong, and despite thousands of women worldwide suffering, this controversial procedure is still being carried out here in the UK. Although a number of changes have been implemented that are supposed to avoid women being put at risk, we still see people being harmed. And when it comes to problems with aftercare, patients can suffer horrendously.
Prevention is key to stopping another scandal like the vaginal mesh one from ever taking place again. It is also important that victims who have suffered are entitled to pursue compensation for any pain and suffering endured.
Whilst we cannot turn back the clock, we can hope for a better future. We can push for better testing and research before medical devices are used, and we can recover compensation for people who have suffered as a result of negligence.
Patients who have undergone unnecessary pelvic mesh procedures can be entitled to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We can investigate your potential legal case to identify if you have been the victim of negligence. Whether it is down to poor advice or better alternatives not being explored, we may be able to help you.
Whilst a vaginal mesh compensation claim cannot turn back the clock and, in some cases, cannot undo some of the damage done, it can mean that you achieve some form of justice for what you have had to endure. We are here to help, and we will do all that we can to try to assist you.
Can you do anything about waiting for private mesh treatment or NHS treatment? You may be able to do so, and we may be able to help you.
As part of a claim for vaginal mesh compensation, in some cases, we may be able to obtain private treatment as part of a case. We may also be able to get the Defendant to pay for it, or at least get a part-payment from them before the case settles to pay for it.
Here is some information about when we may be able to do this and the basis on which we can try to achieve it.
Since the dangers of vaginal mesh began to emerge, many different kinds of complications have been reported. Many of the complications associated with vaginal mesh involve significant pain and injury, with protrusion injuries sometimes being one of the more serious problems.
Protrusion can occur when vaginal mesh erodes or cuts through the vagina and affects surrounding tissue, and sometimes even nearby organs. The complication can demonstrate a failure of the mesh implant to stay in place, and it can be capable of causing severe pain for those affected. Protrusion can also lead to further side-effects and can lead to permanent or long-lasting problems and damage, so this is a very serious issue indeed.
Vaginal mesh was introduced a number of years ago in the UK as a device to treat problems like pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. Over the years, it became an established treatment, but has more recently been met with backlash by women who have faced serious complications provoked by the mesh implants. Those who have been adversely affected by vaginal mesh may be able to claim compensation for pain and suffering in cases where there has been medical negligence.
Despite being approved by medical product regulators and accepted by doctors, vaginal mesh has been found to cause harm to a large number of patients worldwide. It has since become more tightly regulated, and can now only be used by the NHS in exceptional circumstances, but the damage has already been done for many. Questions have been raised about how those responsible for patient welfare have failed to protect patients from harm.
As specialists in medical negligence, we want to support as many victims of vaginal mesh complications as possible. It may be that the negligence of healthcare professionals has played in their pain and suffering, in which case victims could be eligible for compensation pay-outs.
News coverage of women’s stories and treatment reviews has led to a greater awareness of mesh complications in recent years, but there is still work to be done to ensure that the issue receives the attention it merits.
The criticism of vaginal mesh and its potentially harmful side-effects has led to an adjustment in NHS policy, recommending that the devices should only be used in certain circumstances. However, vaginal mesh is still approved by some medical product regulators, and little has been done to address the past mistreatment that patients have faced in some cases.
We cannot right the wrongs that have been done, but we can use our medical negligence expertise to support those affected by mesh complications to claim compensation. When medical professionals breach the duty they owe to their patients, it is important to ensure that they are held accountable for any harm caused.
