Vaginal Mesh Negligence: What do you need to know?

As a victim of Vaginal Mesh Negligence, you have most likely been through a traumatic operation that was initially meant to provide support to any damaged tissue within your pelvis. If this mesh does not work, it can be extremely painful and leave you feeling emotionally drained and victimised. Here at Solicitors On Your Side, we want to help you get the compensation that you deserve for going through such damage. We can offer you free advice on how you can move forward with your claim. All you need to do is get in contact with our specialist lawyers by calling 0330 912 2124 or by visiting our Solicitors On Your Side website today!

Can I claim compensation for vaginal mesh negligence?

Yes, you can! Originally, you may have been told you needed a vaginal mesh to help your internal pelvic organs. The mesh itself is synthetic and looks very similar to a net. Your surgeon will have inserted this mesh inside of you to try and support any weakened tissue, muscles or organs. Unfortunately, if your surgery goes wrong, you could become a victim of vaginal mesh negligence. Complications may include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Long-term pain
  • Constipation
  • Incontinence
  • Sexual Complications
  • Mesh exposure (i.e. through vaginal tissue or nearby organs)
  • Botched surgery (i.e. operating on the wrong part of the body)

If you have experienced any of these complications, or any other type of physical damages due to your surgery, you could be a victim of vaginal mesh negligence. This means you could be eligible to make a claim with our law firm to compensate for the damages you have experienced.

How much compensation can I claim for vaginal mesh negligence?

Before you jump into making any type of medical negligence claim, it’s important that you understand what you are getting yourself into. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the extent of your damages. You may have experienced physical, emotional and financial damages or a loss of opportunity. The more damages you have experienced, the more likely it is that you are going to receive a larger amount of compensation. It will also depend if there is evidence of whether or not you acknowledged the risks of the surgery and whether or not your surgeon made any mistakes during the operation.

The best way to find out how much you could be potentially owed is by speaking to your solicitor at Solicitors On Your Side. They can make an estimate and let you know if you are eligible to make a claim.

How long will it take to get compensation for incorrect vaginal mesh surgery?

Again, this depends on how complicated your case is. Every situation is different; therefore it is important to go through the finer details with a medical negligence lawyer. With the current lockdown and pandemic, there is a chance that you could experience delays with your claim. However, your lawyer will still be there to support you. They can also talk to the other party and their insurer on your behalf before the settlement agreement. Speak to your solicitor for more details.

What sort of evidence do I need to make a claim?

Like any sort of legal claim, it’s essential that you have the right evidence to show that you have suffered at the hands of someone else’s negligence. All medical professionals owe their patients a “duty of care” in order to keep them as safe as possible during treatment. However, if they made a mistake or did not disclose specifics about the treatment to you, this could prove that they were negligent during your time of need.

Evidence that can be used to back up your claim includes:

  • Photographs of your injuries
  • Videos
  • Witness statements
  • Medical reports
  • Evidence of a lack of a signed contract
  • Receipts
  • Make sure to provide your lawyer with as much evidence as possible to back up your claim. The more evidence you have, the more likely it is that you will receive a higher pay-out.

Can I claim compensation for vaginal mesh negligence if I have left the claim for a few years?

Unfortunately, all medical negligence claims personal injury claims have a time limit on them. Whether or not you can still claim for negligence depends on how long you have the claim for. In many instances, you must have started your claim within six years in order to receive compensation for a medical negligence case. That’s why it’s crucial for you to speak to your lawyer as soon as possible.
