Compensation and justice for hernia mesh pain

pain and problems

Mesh implants remain at the centre of controversy, and as a result of growing numbers of patients suffering with pain and problems from hernia mesh surgery, we’re now acting for a number  of people who are claiming personal injury compensation.

In some cases, making a claim can be the only way of obtaining some form of justice for what has happened. Importantly, claims can sometimes include private surgery and treatment options as well.

Patient information leaflet errors

experts warn of buying diet pills online

Patient information leaflet errors can, in the worst-case scenarios, cause severe problems for those who have used the wrong medication or used meds incorrectly due to the error.

When these scenarios happen, a recall will usually be launched and announced via the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Information about the recall will normally be distributed so that patients can be made aware, but this won’t always stop an adverse incident from occurring.

With this in mind, here’s a little advice about what to do if you have suffered harm as a result of following the incorrect information for medication or a product in general.

Stanmore hip implant recall

hip replacement claims

The Stanmore hip implant recall published earlier this year relates to the potential for some Modular Femoral Heads being contained in the incorrect packaging.

The urgent Field Safety Notice issued by Stanmore Implants – who are a part of the Stryker Corporation – outlines the issue and the potential dangers. It may be that patients could be fitted with the incorrect implant heads if the problem is not identified by surgeons and medical staff at the time of an operation.

As with most medical implant problems, this recall is a serious matter, and we have seen the damage that can be done to patients when things go wrong with hip implants.

With the issues surrounding vaginal mesh in the news again, here’s some advice for you if you’ve yet to speak to anyone about your options for compensation.

One of the first things we often remind people about is to make sure that you seek advice as soon as you can. There can be a number of timeframes to start a case in a legal action of this nature.

eye compensation

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay recall has been initiated due to an increased risk of corneal haze that patients implanted with the devices may experience.

A Medical Device Alert was issued via the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) a few weeks ago. There’s a warning to not implant Raindrop Near Vision Inlays and to dispose of any unused stock of them.

Any patients who have already been implanted with the inlays are to be monitored, and any incidents and problems are to be reported. This recall follows the recent news coverage about the Oculentis recall, which is one of the compensation actions we’re representing people for.
