Vaginal Mesh Implant Compensation Claims
You may have heard about the growing number of women in the UK who have successfully made vaginal mesh implant claims. Surgeons enthusiastically offer the procedure for victims of prolapsed organs that cause incontinence. Yet it has left a swathe of casualties in its wake. In particular, women suffering from cuts, infections, scarring and debilitating pain.
The Medical Negligence Experts work with the leading vaginal mesh negligence solicitors to help the victims obtain the compensation they deserve.
So far more than 800 women in England and 400 in Scotland have submitted a claim against the NHS for injuries caused by their vaginal mesh implant. In addition, they request financial recognition for the pain and suffering resulting from:
- faulty implants or;
- the negligent way in which they insert them which means you cannot remove them.
In a significant number of claims, victims also state they:
- did not receive information about the risks with treatment, and;
- would not proceed if they did know this information.
Victims of faulty mesh implants have stated their injuries include:
- Cuts in their vaginal walls caused by sharp edges;
- Infection resulting from cuts and faulty mesh;
- Significant pain. In some instances, this has been so severe that victims have been unable to undertake simple daily activities.
Despite the relatively small number of claims raised, BBC research found that of the 92,000 women who have had the mesh fitted in the UK, one in 11 of them has experienced problems as a result. This means that there could be as many as 10,000 women in the UK who are struggling in silence. Unaware that they may deserve compensation either because:
- the mesh used in their operation was faulty;
- the surgeon who inserted it made a mistake, or;
- they have bad information about the effectiveness of the treatment and its risks.
