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.
Claim compensation for unnecessary pelvic mesh procedures
You could be entitled to claim compensation if you have suffered any injuries, problems or complications that have arisen from unnecessary pelvic mesh surgery.
Whether it is the case that alternative treatment would have been far safer and better, or where you did not really need the procedure at all, we may be able to help you. There can also be cases where women may have undergone unnecessary revision procedures, and we will reference a story about such an event further below.
The vaginal mesh scandal continues to rumble on with thousands of women around the world left suffering from severe and, in some cases, permanent complications. If we can establish that you are the victim of negligence, we may be able to pursue and succeed with a claim for compensation for you.
A darker side of vaginal mesh: bribes for mesh procedures in America
There can also be a much darker side to women undergoing unnecessary pelvic mesh procedures, and this story from the US is extraordinarily chilling.
Last year, Reuters reported on a doctor and a surgical funder in America reportedly having charges brought against them in relation to alleged bribes being paid to refer women for transvaginal mesh implant revision procedures. According to the news report, a Florida-based urogynaecology surgeon pleaded guilty to charges relating to a plot to convince patients to have procedures to remove their mesh in order to benefit from compensation funds from manufacturers.
Now, we often cover the fact that one of the primary issues relating to vaginal mesh is that it can be incredibly difficult to remove once it has been implanted. So, if anyone is undergoing an unnecessary pelvic mesh removal procedure, this could leave patients with permanent and lifelong problems. Women being presented with misleading information about why they should remove mesh, especially when this may not be in their best interests, is truly horrifying.
