Media coverage of the pelvic mesh inquiry results has led to a new wave of people contacting us for help and advice about No Win, No Fee compensation claims.
The brief of the findings is that there are patients who have been failed and badly let down, with their suffering and their pleas for help ignored. Victims of negligence should be entitled to compensation, and this is what we do as a way of getting some form of justice for victims of vaginal mesh issues.
Here’s our take on the inquiry and how we can help people today.
Findings in the pelvic mesh inquiry
The findings in the pelvic mesh inquiry indicate a clear failure to patients in terms of their safety and their treatment after many raised the alarm of problems and complications. There appears to have been several instances where women were ignored and were not given the appropriate attention that they needed.
Women affected by vaginal mesh issues may now be issued with a formal apology from the government as a result of the significant failures highlighted in the report. The results of the pelvic mesh inquiry is welcome news, but we must remember that there’s no turning back the clock for those who have been permanently injured by pelvic mesh. Compensation that is fair and adequate must be issued to those who have been harmed by negligence as the only real way that victims can be helped and receive some form of closure for what they have endured. Even then, we’re sure most people would rather not have suffered at all in the first place, but a legal case can be incredibly beneficial as we will outline below.
How a claim for compensation can help
As we said earlier, we do wish that we could turn back the clock, but that just isn’t possible. What we can do as a specialist personal injury law firm is represent victims for compensation claims, and that’s what we do right now.
A legal case can achieve some form of justice for a victim. If successful, we may be able to recover damages for:
- The pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused by the problems and complications that have developed; and
- Losses and expenses that can include a range of things, such as lost earnings from time off work or a lost career, and even the costs of private treatment and surgery in some cases.
The last one can go a very long way to helping a victim. When it comes to a claim for losses and expenses, known as the Special Damages, the idea behind it is to put the victim back in the position they were in prior to the negligence occurring. Any financial loss or disadvantage can be calculated and put into a Schedule of Loss and can then be claimed as part of a legal case in addition to the damages for the injury and suffering.
These kinds of cases are usually very high in value given the extent and severity of the suffering and loss that victims can endure. We offer No Win, No Fee representation for clients who claim with us and have eligible cases.
