Claiming compensation for vaginal mesh removal

When vaginal mesh removal has become a requirement, it’s important for victims to know that they may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Our expert injury lawyers are representing a number of patients who have suffered horrendous complications that have arisen from TVT mesh implants. Some of the problems that can be caused mean that women must undergo an additional procedure to try and remove the implant, and in some cases, this isn’t always possible. In some cases, women can be left with defective implants inside for the rest of their lives.

Given that this is such a serious problem, what can women do when the need for removal leaves them with pain and suffering?

Claiming for vaginal mesh removal

You can be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation for vaginal mesh removal problems.

To be able to claim, we need to establish that negligence has taken place. We can sometimes establish negligence in scenarios such as the following:

  • Inadequate advice has been given about the risks and alternatives, and this resulted in you opting for the surgery in the first place;
  • A surgical error took place;
  • Inadequate aftercare resulted in a problem;
  • A defective or unsuitable implant has been used.

As part of a case, we can use expert evidence as well as your medical records in order to be able to establish a finding of negligence.

What do you claim for?

When it comes to a claim for vaginal mesh removal, there’s a few things that we can look at to determine what you may be able to recover.

In most cases, you can recover damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You can also claim for any losses and expenses.

In a case like this, the pain and suffering can be for the additional surgery that has been required. It may also cover the pain and suffering leading up to corrective surgery, and / or any lasting impact on you. When there’s a chance that full removal of a TVT implant isn’t possible, you could be left with pain and problems for the rest of your life. This is something that we take into account when it comes to valuing a claim for personal injury compensation.

You may also be able to claim for the cost of private surgery and / or treatment if it’s required as well. We may also be able to factor in consequential losses and expenses, like lost earnings for time off work.
