Common hernia mesh problems

With some 170,000 potential cases of patients suffering from hernia mesh problems, this is an important issue and people need to know their rights for justice.

Common hernia mesh complications can include:

  • Pain, which can be chronic;
  • Relapses of the hernia;
  • Organ damage (obstructions and perforation);
  • Scar tissue that can trigger an inflammatory response.

If you have suffered any of these problems having had a hernia mesh device fitted, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

We may be able to help you.

Claim hernia mesh compensation

You may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you’re suffering with hernia mesh problems. If the problems were preventable, there may be a case to answer.

Factors that we consider when we assess a claim can include:

  • Whether alternatives were fully explored and could have been offered;
  • What (if any) follow-up care, advice and treatment was in place;
  • Whether the risks were fully explained and advised.

If any of the above potentially apply to your situation, you may have a claim. We can also investigate whether the surgery was suitable for you, and whether the surgery was carried out with the reasonable care and skill required.

More needs to be done

These kinds of devices and the surgery can be complicated. With so many people suffering with hernia mesh complications, it’s clear to us that more needs to be done to investigate the problems and ensure patients are safe.
