We represent victims for hernia mesh compensation claims and we can work for our clients on a No Win, No Fee basis, with a free initial case assessment.

We understand how severe the pain and problems can be when hernia mesh has gone wrong. Claiming compensation can be important for any victim to receive some form of justice for what they have to go through.

Here is some guidance about when you could claim, what you could claim for, and how we assess claims to bring them to a successful conclusion.

Can you claim for hernia mesh problems?

Hernia mesh compensation claims are typically legal cases for compensation where the victim can pursue damages for any problems or complications that arise. To be able to succeed with a claim, we need to establish that you have been the victim of negligence. If we can do this, you may then be eligible to be compensated for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity you endure, as well as for losses and expenses.

Examples where it may be the case that you are the victim of negligence can include:

  • More suitable alternatives to hernia mesh not being offered;
  • Inadequate advice about the risks of the hernia mesh procedure;
  • Surgical errors or mistakes during treatment or aftercare;
  • A defect with the mesh itself.

If we can prove that there has been an error or a mistake, you could be owed compensation. We will normally establish this by instructing an independent medical expert to provide a report for us that can be used to help determine if your problems could have been avoided. If they reasonably could have, you could then be eligible to receive compensation.

The report can also be used to assess the extent and severity of the suffering and loss you endure. This is important for us to be able to determine how much compensation you could be entitled to receive.

What could you claim for?

Hernia mesh compensation claims, like most other personal injury legal cases, will normally include two key overheads:

  • General Damages – for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity; and
  • Special Damages – for losses and expenses.

Hernia mesh problems and complications can be severe. They can include pain, infections, hernia relapse, organ damage, and movement of the mesh material itself. This can mean a great deal of pain and suffering, and it can stop you from doing almost any of your usual activities. If it leads to having time off work, you could claim lost earnings for the absence period if you were not fully paid. You could also be eligible to claim private treatment if it will help to speed up your recovery and keep your losses and pain to a minimum.

No Win, No Fee hernia mesh compensation claims

We carefully assess hernia mesh compensation claims to see if we can take them forward for victims on a No Win, No Fee basis. Our initial assessment is available for you on a free and no-obligation basis. If we consider that there is a case to answer, we can offer to represent you on the basis that we can write off legal fees if the case does not succeed, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement.

We are huge believers in access to justice, and we do not think that it would be fair for people to have to pay legal fees for a losing case. This is why we work this way for our clients.
