A transvaginal mesh lawyer understands what you are going through

If you are a woman who has been treated for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) or Urinary Incontinence (UI) with transvaginal mesh and you have suffered some injuries as a result you need to talk to a transvaginal mesh lawyer who understands what you are going through and knows how to fight successfully for you in a court of law.

Your lawyer knows what this medical device does for patients and she also knows what happens to patients when the device fails. If the device is implanted properly and works well a woman’s vaginal area will function properly and she will not suffer from discomfort.  This device has been used for 10 years, but in the last few years there has been a 10% increase among the more than 300,000 women per year that have been implanted. The main issue is that the mesh erodes into the vaginal walls and no longer provides support or the mesh tightens and shifts resulting in protrusion into the vaginal canal.

The injuries are significant and can cause additional emotional and physical pain even in daily activities like sitting, walking, or sexual intercourse. Some of the injuries linked to transvaginal mesh include:

  • Perforation of pelvic organs and bowels;  and blood vessels

  • Pelvic pain that makes movement painful

  • Abdominal pressure

  • Recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

  • Vaginal discharge or infections

  • Vaginal scarring and shortening of the vaginal canal

  • Urinary incontinence

Your transvaginal mesh lawyer will help you decide how to prosecute your case. You may want to participate in a class action suit that is argued for litigants of a class or to argue based on the merits of your individual case. Your lawyer will essentially argue that the makers of pelvic mesh failed to uphold their responsibility to provide adequate warnings to both doctors and the patients.

The manufacturers will in turn argue that they made no safety claims for vaginal application of the mesh and that the doctors failed to implant the devices properly to prevent injury.

IF the defendant is found liable to your injuries as a result of their negligence they will be ordered to pay:

  • Medical bills related to the injury, including surgeries

  • Loss of wages for you and your caregivers

  • Loss of spousal consortium

  • Reduced quality of life

  • Pain and suffering, including emotional pain.

If you are suffering from pain due to a failed transvaginal mesh device you should meet with a transvaginal lawyer who understands what you are experiencing and know how to argue your case successfully.
