Essure compensation claims

mesh

Thousands of women are coming forward to make Essure compensation claims after suffering severe complications after having the Essure implant fitted.

Many women who have had Essure fitted have had to undergo further complex surgeries and treatments to remove the device. This has caused further pain, suffering and loss that could have otherwise been avoided.

An estimated 100,000 women in the UK are understood to have had the Essure implant fitted. This means that thousands of women could have suffered serious and intense complications as a result of a possible medical negligence incident. We are here to help you fight to get the justice you deserve by taking forward Essure compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients.

pelvic mesh inquiry

The results of the recently published report that follows a huge pelvic mesh inquiry in the UK has revealed worrying details about some patients being let down.

As a specialist medical negligence law firm, we have been representing clients for vaginal mesh compensation claims for years. These cases are some of the most severe there can be as patients can be left with permanent damage and lifelong suffering. In some cases, the pain and problems can turn the victim’s life upside down.

The results of the pelvic mesh inquiry may come as some form of closure for women who may have been let down by the healthcare system and the manufacturers.

Worrying revelations from Ian Paterson inquiry

The revelations from the recently published report following the Ian Paterson inquiry has revealed that more than 1,000 patients suffered needless operations.

The report also recommends that perhaps all 11,000 of his patients are recalled to identify if the number of victims is greater. The report has also criticised the NHS and the hospitals he has worked at, citing that there was a “culture of avoidance and denial” and “wilful blindness”  to his actions.

As specialist medical negligence lawyers, we often see the horrors patients go through when something goes wrong. But this is a very different case that involves a rogue surgeon who has deliberately harmed and violated the patients he was charged with caring for.

New vaginal mesh guidelines criticised

pelvic mesh inquiry

The new vaginal mesh guidelines that have been put in place following last year’s widespread pause in the NHS have come under heavy criticism already.

All we can say is that we know just how bad it can be for the women whose vaginal mesh procedures fail. We see the impact it has on people when lives can be turned upside down, with complications leaving some women unable to walk or work ever again. We act for women who have suffered horrendous problems, and some complications simply cannot be resolved.

The 2018 NHS pause was a step in the right direction, but the continued use of mesh slings and tapes remains a serious concern.

Sinister reasons for valsartan side effects?

drugs issues

Like all drugs, there can be inherent complications. However, there could be more sinister reasons behind certain valsartan side effects people may suffer from.

There’s been a huge Europe-wide recall of the blood pressure drug last year, which we covered last year. This stems from a potential contamination issue in the manufacturing process. As a result, valsartan that’s supplied by Actavis Group PTC (now Accord) and Dexcel Pharma Ltd is now subject to a recall.

The potential contamination issue could be incredibly serous for anyone that’s affected by it. In America, there are already class actions and group cases for people who have taken the drug. Our lawyers want to hear from anyone in the UK who has suffered problems.
