Hernia mesh removal and claims for compensation

doctor papers

Hernia mesh removal can be incredibly difficult to perform, and patients can still be left with serious complications. We pursue personal injury compensation for hernia mesh patients, and we may be able to help you.

There are many ways in which you could be entitled to pursue a claim. For eligible clients, we may be able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation.

Issue with hernia mesh removal

Unfortunately, some hernia mesh removal procedures have been placed on hold as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Whilst resources must be allocated where they are needed the most, this does not help people suffering from immense pain and complications that can arise from mesh going wrong.

The pain in some cases can be severe, constant and completely life-changing, affecting all areas of a patient’s ability to simply function on a day-to-day basis. It can stop people from enjoying their hobbies and pursuits, as well as stopping people being able to work. This can especially be the case for those who work in physical/manual jobs.

These are not isolated incidents: many people have come forward with chronic issues ever since they had their hernia mesh implanted. Some figures recently suggested as many as one in ten people have experienced chronic issues after having hernia mesh fitted!

Some have had to fight for help for years, having been dismissed or not being helped when they have complained of worries and concerns. We have been seeing this in the Vaginal Mesh Scandal cases also, where some women were simply not believed when they were presenting with problems.

You have to remember that hernia mesh removal can be incredibly difficult to achieve. Medical mesh devices are usually intended to be permanent, so they are not designed to be easily removed. This means that, if something goes wrong, it can be incredibly difficult to resolve the problems.

There is also a big debate over whether using hernia mesh offers any additional benefits when compared to traditional surgical repair techniques. This worsens the worries, and we question whether the advice given to patients prior to consenting to this invasive surgery accounts for issues such as this. Some patients who have managed to undergo successful hernia mesh removal have managed significantly positive recoveries, showing that their years of suffering may have been in vain.

Legal action for justice

Patients who have suffered as a result of being fitted with a hernia mesh device that has subsequently led to problems could be entitled to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.

A legal case may be justified if consent to the surgery is an issue where the risks where not properly explained, or where poor surgical technique has led to problems. Patients may also be eligible to claim for poor aftercare, or for where the device itself has failed and/or was unsuitable.

We will need to investigate the full facts and evidence that may be useful in a potential case, and we can normally offer free, no-obligation claims assessments before taking a case forward. If we are confident that there are prospects to succeed with a claim, we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation to eligible clients.

Although we cannot turn back the clock and undo any damage done to you, a legal claim for personal injury compensation can be an avenue for some form of justice. You could be entitled to receive damages for pain, suffering, loss of amenity, and for any losses and expenses incurred. This could include lost earnings for time off work.
