OVER 300,000 CLIENTS REPRESENTED
With over 18,000 transvaginal mesh cases currently pending, women who have suffered harm from a mesh implant used in stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse surgery may be wondering whether they should file a suit against the manufacturer of their own mesh implant. Over 12,000 of those have been combined into an MDL before Judge Goodwin in West Virgina while others are state-filed cases...
If you are a recipient of transvaginal mesh used in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse and have experienced significant health issues, you may wonder just how dangerous your mesh or bladder sling really is. Those women who have suffered significant mesh erosion, the formation of adhesions, extrusion, fistula formation, infection or sepsis, vaginal shortening, nerve injury or scar formation which results in mesh contraction may be forced to undergo revision surgery.
There are different statutes of limitations—time limits within which a lawsuit must be filed—from one state to the next. Failure to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit within the statutes of the state the injured person resides in could potentially bar recovery for claims related to yet another dangerous, substandard medical device. In most cases the statute of limitations begins to run from July, 2011 when the FDA announced there were risks of complications associated with the vaginal mesh when used for pelvic organ prolapse. Some of these complications include mesh erosion, chronic pelvic pain, infection, organ perforation, painful sexual intercourse and incontinence.
