The continued dangers of vaginal and hernia plastic medical mesh implants remain ongoing, yet both are still being used for procedures here in the UK and in other parts of the world.
Despite the known dangers, the thousands of people harmed by mesh devices, and the permanence that some can suffer from, patients are still undergoing these treatments.
Many do not know the severity of the consequences and complications that can arise. Some patients have fallen victim to poor treatment or surgery. Some have received inadequate aftercare and revision treatments. There are plenty of ways people can suffer, and we want to help in the only way that we can – with specialist legal representation.
Still in use despite the various scandals
Thousands of people around the world have been harmed through the use of plastic medical mesh implants. In fact, some have been left permanently injured with severe and life-changing complications, and some have even died from their complications.
Despite these issues, plastic medical mesh implants continue to be used around the world. We are told by regulators and manufacturers that the risks of harm are low for many people, and we know that guidelines have evolved over time. However, some people are still being badly harmed, and it can come down to poor advice or the negligent implantation of such devices.
We want to stop victims suffering from decades of pain and agony. We may not be able to turn back the clock, but we can make sure that our action brings some form of justice for the victims.
Compensation for plastic medical mesh implants that go wrong
People who have been harmed by plastic medical mesh implants could be entitled to pursue personal injury compensation claims. They can arise from instances of poor and negligent advice, a lack of care and after treatment, and from negligent surgery itself.
The common mesh claims we represent people for are pelvic/vaginal mesh and hernia mesh. Both meshes can be made from a form of plastic and are intended to be permanent. If something goes wrong, patients can be left with lifelong complications.
Those who pursue compensation cases could be entitled to pursue compensation for General Damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused, as well as Special Damages for losses and expenses.
