Surgical Mesh Implant Claims

Surgical Mesh Implant Claims

Surgical Mesh Implants have been used to treat women suffering from Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), it is a permanent implant which is designed to provide support to the bladder and other organs. However, a recent review of the use of the implant has identified that there has been widespread use of defective mesh in the UK and a failure by medical professionals to warn patients of the potential risks of treatment and advise on viable alternatives.

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.

If the other party accepts fault, we will negotiate with them to come to an agreement on the amount of damages you should get. Your case will move to court if they dispute responsibility, or the amount of compensation provided is insufficient. We'll make sure you have our full support and are well-represented at all times.

Compensation can be awarded for a range of issues, including:
