Filing a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

Proven Legal Guidance to Help You Navigate the Process of Filing a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

Transvaginal mesh has been used since the mid-to-late 1990s to treat common medical conditions such as Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Several large manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies have entered the market with transvaginal mesh products. The most prevalent makers of transvaginal mesh include

  • Boston Scientific
  • Ethicon, Inc. (Johnson & Johnson)
  • R. Bard, Inc.
  • American Medical Systems
  • Coloplast Corporation

Collectively, these companies are facing more than 100,000 lawsuits filed by patients that have experienced serious health complications following mesh implantation. Thousands of women have been required to undergo additional surgical procedures in an attempt to correct or remove transvaginal mesh, but many are left with permanent side effects that greatly reduce quality of life.

If you’ve experienced complications following a transvaginal mesh procedure, you may be able to recover damages for your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after you become aware of a potential problem to ensure that you are still eligible to file a lawsuit. Generally, you have two years from the date the injury occurred or the date you became aware of the problem to file a lawsuit. In most transvaginal mesh cases, the statute of limitations does not start until you have complications attributable to the mesh. There are several steps that must be taken throughout the process and your case may go on for several years.

If filing a lawsuit is in your best interest, the Florida transvaginal mesh attorneys at Osborne & Associates work diligently to fully evaluate your medical history, gather evidence to support your claims as well as expert medical testimony to substantiate and prove the extent of the health complications you’ve experienced. We work with all parties involved to negotiate your case and reach a full and fair settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, we are ready to take your case to trial to achieve the maximum compensation you deserve.

The complications associated with transvaginal mesh have the potential to negatively impact your personal and financial well-being for many years to come. Hiring an experienced transvaginal mesh lawsuit attorney with significant litigation experience is your best chance at receiving the restitution you deserve.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”
