Whatever you do, make sure that you don’t leave it too late to get started with your hernia mesh lawsuit, or you can risk missing the chance to claim.
With these types of cases, there can be a number of timeframes and deadlines in which to get started with your claim for compensation. If you miss one of them, it may mean that you’re unable to make a claim at all. That means potentially missing out on thousands of pounds in damages that should be rightfully yours.
We’re acting for a number of patients who are making a hernia mesh compensation claim with our expert team of lawyers. But we can’t help you if the deadline to claim has passed…
How long do you have to start your hernia mesh lawsuit?
The deadline to start your hernia mesh lawsuit is often assessed on a case-by-case basis.
It can depend on a number of things, and these include:
- When you had your initial hernia mesh surgery;
- Whether the surgery was on the NHS or was done privately;
- The type of hernia mesh you have been fitted with;
- When you first started suffering problems or complications;
- When you were given any official diagnosis of problems of complications.
We can only truly determine the deadline for your case by assessing your individual circumstances. It may be that one or more of the potential deadlines has passed, and this could mean that you’re unable to make a claim at all.
WARNING: we have had to reject cases
Unfortunately, following an assessment, we have had to turn some mesh cases away. This would mean that a potential hernia mesh lawsuit won’t get off the ground with us.
And we’ve had to do it because we have identified that a key deadline to start a claim has passed.
We don’t like turning clients away. We really do want to help as many people as we can. But our hands are tied by the law, and there’s often nothing we can do when it comes to an expired deadline to make a claim.
