Making pelvic mesh compensation claims

We can help people affected by pelvic mesh complications by pursuing pelvic mesh compensation claims.

There can be many risks involved with the use of pelvic mesh which is why, in some cases, it has been banned. At the Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital NHS Trust, they previously banned the use of pelvic mesh as a treatment but one individual, Dr Angamuthu Arunkalaivanan, continued to use it. The hospital then had to issue a recall for patients with mesh devices implanted after the ban. This was a serious breach of conduct and victims affected by this may be eligible to make pelvic mesh compensation claims, and this is an action we represent people for.
