Unable to walk from pelvic mesh problems – what can be done?

two lawyers

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.

What can be done if you are left unable to walk from vaginal mesh?

Being left unable to walk from having pelvic mesh fitted can be one of the most serious complications that patients can suffer from. As we often say, we cannot turn back the clock, and you may be left with long-terms issues. As someone who has a walking disability myself, I can understand some of the difficulties and the limitations.

The only thing we can really do as expert lawyers is to use the law to support you with a claim for personal injury compensation. We can seek to recover damages for what you have had to go through, and we can also try to support you in any way that we can.

A compensation claim if successful, or where liability has been admitted, could help to speed up any chance of recovery. Whilst it is not guaranteed, we may be able to see if we can raise the money for private surgery during the course of a claim. It can all depend on the case, and it is never a given, but private treatment in personal injury claims can be funded where it is required.

This is one way we may be able to support you as part of a case.

Serious complications

Being left unable to walk from vaginal mesh complications can completely change everything. Some women have been left in terrible pain that is so long-lasting and so excruciating that it can have a direct impact on every facet of their lives. If a defective pelvic mesh device cannot be removed, or cannot be fully removed, it may leave patients with constant problems as mesh cuts them from the inside. This can then directly affect a patient’s ability to work and live their everyday lives, and it can have an impact on relationships and intimacy as well.

There are a lot of serious complications that can arise, and you can read more about them here.

Not only can people’s lives be completely changed forever, but it can also take a long time for problems to occur. Some women have reported issues starting many years after their initial surgery, and it can then suddenly turn people’s lives upside down out of the blue.
