Vaginal mesh scandal: what you can do

patient consultation

If you’re one of the victims of the ongoing vaginal mesh scandal, and you’ve yet to make a claim for medical negligence compensation, we can help.

We’re representing victims who are claiming with us on a No Win, No Fee basis, and we have been doing so for a number of years. We won’t lie: these claims can be incredibly difficult to pursue. But with our specialist help and proven expertise, we can give you a good  chance of justice.

Here’s a little advice about your rights if you have suffered – or are left suffering for the rest of your life – due to pelvic mesh problems.

Can you claim as a victim of the vaginal mesh scandal?

If you’ve suffered problems and / or complications as a result of the ongoing vaginal mesh scandal, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

If the device has ultimately led to more suffering, you may have a case. If it has failed and needs to be removed, you may also have a case. In some circumstances it can be impossible to fully remove the mesh as well, and we also take this into account.

You can be entitled to make a claim for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You may also be eligible to claim for any financial losses and expenses as well. This can be incredibly important for lost earnings for time off work. We know that, in some of the worst-case scenarios, some women have been left unable to walk or work ever again for the rest of their lives. We do take this into account as part of a legal case.

What are the costs for claiming?

We offer victims of the vaginal mesh scandal who claim with us No Win, No Fee representation. This means that, so long as you adhere to the terms of the agreement we have in place, we can waive our legal fees if the case doesn’t succeed.

If the claim wins, we can recover some – but not all – of the legal fees incurred from the opponent. What we cannot recover is then normally deducted from the settlement. This is usually known as a Success Fee deduction and is normally capped by law at a maximum of 25% in terms of compensation for the injuries, past losses and expenses.

The government did increase the amount you can recover for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity by 10% to help to offset the fact that there are now deductions for making a claim. This helps a little, but the key thing is the No Win, No Fee part.
