No Win, No Fee hernia mesh claims

We represent clients for hernia mesh claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. For eligible clients who we think have a good enough chance at succeeding with their compensation case, we can work in this way to make sure that victims have a pathway to justice.

We do not think that it would be fair for people to be forced to pay privately for cases, or pay for legal fees if a case doesn’t succeed. That’s why we work in the way that we do. Subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement in place, we really can write off legal fees if the claim does not succeed.

To prove a case, we will normally need to establish that you have been the victim of negligence, and that this negligence has caused you to suffer. This could arise from instances when:

  • You were not properly informed about the risks of the procedure, including the potential long-term risks;
  • You did not receive adequate follow-up care and treatment when required;
  • There were alternatives available that did not carry the same risks;
  • The procedure was unsuitable for you;
  • Surgical errors have occurred;
  • You suffer as a result of defects with the mesh itself.

It is not always easy to establish negligence in a claim like this. We do have access to some of the best independent medical experts in the UK who we can ask to produce reports for us that can determine if there has been negligence or not. If the report is supportive, that’s when you could then go on to settle a compensation case.

What you could claim for

There are a number of factors that we can consider for hernia mesh claims. The problems and complications that can arise can be severe, and can include pain, organ damage, movement or change in the shape of the mesh, infections, problems with scar tissue, and the hernia reoccurring.

You could receive compensation that covers:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of amenity;
  • Inconvenience;
  • Losses, like lost earnings from time off work;
  • Expenses, like the cost of private medical treatment or pain killers.

Generally speaking, the more you suffer physically, mentally and financially, the more a legal case could be worth.
