You may be entitled to hernia mesh compensation if you’ve suffered complications. There are growing concerns over the use of hernia mesh, and victims of negligence may be entitled to claim.
Hernia mesh complications can be severe. Patients may need to undergo revision surgery for either a removal or partial remove of the implanted mesh. In some cases, revision surgery can be incredibly complicated.
Our Medical Negligence Lawyers are here to help you claim hernia mesh compensation. Read on for further advice.
When can you claim hernia mesh compensation?
You may be eligible to claim for hernia mesh compensation if you’ve suffered complications arising out of the procedure you’ve had.
Although hernia mesh is not banned in the UK (but has been subject to recalls in the US), there has been criticism over advice and guidance given to patients.
Did you know that the risk rate for complications can be as high as 30%? Did you know that there are suitable alternatives to hernia mesh procedures?
If you were not properly advised about the risks and how common they can be, you may be entitled to hernia mesh compensation. If you were not given the opportunity to undergo an alternative procedure that may have been safer and more suitable, you may also have a case.
Another major issue the NHS is being criticised for is the lack of consistency in the guidance and follow-up for patients. This was a major issue at the heart of the similar vaginal mesh issues that we’re helping people claim for.
Any failure to ensure patients are given proper follow-up care and advice may mean you are eligible to claim hernia mesh compensation.
How does a hernia mesh compensation claim work?
In a hernia mesh compensation claim you can receive damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You may also receive damages for losses and expenses, such as lost earnings from time off work.
You could also claim for private medical care and potentially private revision surgery if this is needed.
Hernia mesh complications can include:
- Adhesions, which is scar tissue that can cause an inflammatory response;
- Mobility problems, such as standing and walking difficulties);
- Bowel obstruction;
- Organ perforation;
- Hernia recurrence.
