Hernia mesh dangers and legal advice

scan compensation claims

Hernia mesh dangers can be severe, and with the risk of complications being as high as 30% in some cases, it’s a matter that needs to be treated seriously.

We’re acting for a number of people who are claiming for personal injury compensation having suffered with hernia mesh problems. Our lawyers specialise in serious injury claims, and any medical case usually fits into this category; especially when it comes to surgery and medical implant cases.

Patients can be left with lifelong problems that can completely turn their lives upside down. With this in mind, here’s some advice about the dangers of hernia mesh and what you can do about it.

What are the known hernia mesh dangers?

Known hernia mesh dangers that can arise in some cases for patients can include:

  • Pain and mobility problems which can be chronic;
  • Hernia relapse;
  • The mesh fracturing, migrating or shrinking;
  • Organ damage, such as organ perforation;
  • Scar tissue triggering an inflammatory response.

Any of the above may mean that you need further surgery, and in some cases, you may be left with long-term or lifelong problems. Whether you can make a claim for hernia mesh compensation can depend on the care both before and after your initial procedure.

Were you warned about hernia mesh dangers?

One of the key things we ask when we look to take a claim forward is whether you were warned about hernia mesh dangers prior to having the procedure.

If you weren’t, there could be a case for negligence. If you were, just how extensive was the advice? If you’re left with permanent or long-term problems, was this properly explained to you?

You can read more about how the claims work and whether you can be eligible to make a claim on our full advice page here.
