Eligibility to claim
You may be eligible to make a pelvic mesh compensation claim with us on a No Win, No Fee basis if you have suffered injuries and / or complications having been fitted with a vaginal mesh or sling.
There can be numerous ways in which you may have a case, and these can include:
- Errors during the initial or revision surgery;
- A lack of advice about the risks and alternatives to pelvic mesh;
- Poor aftercare and treatment;
- A defect or problem with the mesh or sling fitted.
The information provided about risks and the importance of alternatives being offered cannot be overstated. Some women are left unable to work or even walk ever again when their pelvic mesh has failed. In some cases, it can be impossible to remove the mesh once it’s fitted as they are designed to be permanent. This can leave some patients suffering from permanent problems.
What can you claim for?
When you make a pelvic mesh compensation claim, there are several things that we can consider.
When you make a claim for personal injury compensation, the case is normally made up of two parts:
- General Damages;
- Special Damages.
General Damages is for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. This is essentially the claim for the injuries, and it’s usually based on the length and extent of your suffering. The Special Damages part is for losses and expenses, and this can include lost earnings from time off work and expenses for private care and treatment.
