Pelvic mesh compensation claims

mesh implants pelvic mesh inquiry

In recent years, concerns about the safety of pelvic mesh implants have been raised after many women began coming forward to report the complications they had suffered. While many women have already come to us to make claims, we believe that there are still many more pelvic mesh compensation claims to be brought on the basis of medical negligence.

Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, the mesh implants had long been perceived as an essential form of treatment, but now guidelines have been adjusted to ensure they are only used in a minority of cases. Nevertheless, it is unforgivable that pelvic mesh implants were, and to some extent still are, regarded as safe, given that they have caused irreversible damage to the health and well-being of many patients.

We believe these injustices must be accounted for, which is why we encourage anyone who has suffered the effects of mesh implants to come forward for advice on their potential claim.

Pelvic mesh complications

Pelvic mesh complications have been known to cause irreversible harm to some victims, with some suffering debilitating pain and injury for the rest of their lives. The mesh has been found to cut through the vaginal tissue, causing bleeding and infections, or cause damage to the surrounding organs in some cases. In fact, the mesh implants have been completely unfit for purpose for some patients, who have suffered a relapse of either prolapse or incontinence, the conditions which the mesh is designed to treat.

For some, the pain and mobility problems that result from these internal problems can mean they are unable to go about their everyday life in the same way, whether they are unable to exercise, or no longer able to go to work. Where earnings are impacted, or when there are new treatment expenses, the pelvic mesh complications also have a financial impact. This can also be factored into a legal case.

How we make your claim

In order to make your pelvic mesh compensation claim, we need to prove medical causation. Generally speaking, this means finding a link between the medical negligence of a doctor and the mesh complications you have suffered. In the case of pelvic mesh implants, the negligence could consist of surgical errors when implanting the mesh, a failure to give you advice about the risks involved, or maybe a failure to treat your complications when they arose.

To value your pelvic mesh compensation claim, we can weigh up all the factors that have affected you as a result of the complications. The claim is usually split up into two categories that can account for the different effects mesh complications can have. General Damages can cover the pain, suffering and inconvenience caused, while Special Damages can cover any financial losses or expenses that have been provoked by your condition.

For those who will be unable to work in the long term, a claim could even anticipate the earnings you may lose out on in future in order to ensure you are appropriately compensated.
