Australian vaginal mesh court case victory welcome

Justice Court

We welcome the recent successful ruling in the Australian vaginal mesh court case that has been widely publicised in recent weeks.

We continue to act for a number of women who have suffered with complications and injuries that arise from the use of vaginal mesh in England and Wales. News of the victory in Australia is welcome as we know how badly women can suffer when things go wrong. In fact, some patients can be left with serious and permanent problems.

These can be difficult cases to succeed with, so any success stories around the world is always welcome news, although the decision won’t have any direct bearing on cases here. The wider fight for justice is ongoing, and we continue to help people here on a No Win, No Fee basis.

About the vaginal mesh court case in Australia

We understand that over 1,350 women in Australia who have been a part of a substantial vaginal mesh court case have won their legal battle.

Their case has been brought against Ethicon; a subsidiary company of Johnson & Johnson (J&J). The case has been based on allegations of a failure to warn patients and consultants about the risks associated with pelvic mesh surgery.

Presiding Judge Anna Katzmann is reported to have referenced “inaccurate” and “false representations” made in relation to safety advice, and that “risks were known, not insignificant and on Ethicon’s own admission, serious harm could ensue if they eventuated”.

Impact of the vaginal mesh court case here

News of the vaginal mesh court case victory is certainly welcome, and there are some similarities in how the UK and Australia approach the law.

There are women whose lives have been turned upside down by vaginal mesh, with some unable to walk or work ever again.

That being said, we are two different jurisdictions. As such, we can’t directly use the victory to be able to be able to influence cases here. We do welcome the news of the success and we hope that it can help the wider global battle for justice that involves tens of thousands of women from all corners of the Earth.

Claiming in the UK

If you have suffered injury, problems and / or complications that have arisen from being fitted with a vaginal mesh device, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

We can look to represent women for cases in England and Wales. Unfortunately, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own legal jurisdictions that we cannot fully operate in.

We’re representing several women for legal cases, and we have been doing for a number of years. We can offer No Win, No Fee representation for cases that meet our criteria, and as we specialise in serious and catastrophic injury claims in terms of personal injury cases, you’re in safe hands with us.
