The time limit for making vaginal mesh claims is within three years of the date you could have reasonably known that your injury was a result of medical negligence. The clock would start ticking, for example, following a diagnosis by a GP or any other medical professional that mesh is the cause of your problems. This means that, even if you underwent a mesh procedure and you are only now experiencing pain and discomfort, you could still be eligible to make a vaginal mesh claim.
