Surgical Mesh Implant Claims

How do I make a claim for surgical mesh implant compensation?
If you have suffered injury following a surgical mesh implant and you believe that this was as a result of negligence on the part of a doctor or other healthcare practitioner, you are advised to speak to a solicitor as soon as possible.
If you ask us to represent you, we will begin by gathering information about the incident and determining what happened and who was at fault. We'll compile supporting documentation for your assertion and get in touch with the appropriate health trust to inform them of the claim.
We will ask our medical experts to carry out examinations and write a report about the injuries you have suffered. This will form the basis of your case.
