Transvaginal Mesh Products Regulations Increased

Regulations on Transvaginal Mesh Products Increased by the FDA

Transvaginal mesh products have been used since the early 1990s with very little regulatory oversight. In the more than twenty years that followed, thousands of patients suffered unanticipated complicated and injuries due to the implant. As of January 4th of 2016 the FDA has announced that there are increased regulations for transvaginal mesh devices.

This has been a slow process for the FDA to take action. Studies conducted throughout 2008-2010 showed that the devices were becoming progressively dangerous for their recipients. The FDA even found that other natural means may be more effective than these artificial implants. Despite this information, manufacturers have knowingly continued to sell these dangerous implants. According to Boca Raton defective medical device attorneys, this knowing endangerment of consumers creates a great deal of potential liability for people that have received these transvaginal mesh implants.

These new regulations do not mean that consumers are out of danger. Some components of the regulations do not really impact the device manufacturers until 2018. Our leading Boca Raton medical device liability attorneys are concerned there will be many more innocent victims who receive these dangerous implants and suffer injuries as a result before the FDA protects them. Your only recourse is taking legal action to hold the manufacturers financially accountable.

There are 34 transvaginal mesh manufacturers in the United States. There are tens of thousands of potential victims that are suffering injuries from these faulty implants. Anyone that has one of these devices, even without current complications, is encouraged to speak with both a medical doctor and a products liability attorney to learn about their rights and options for ensuring their well-being.

You should be proactive if you have had a transvaginal mesh product implanted. At Osborne & Francis Law Firm PLLC, our Boca Raton transvaginal mesh device attorneys have already successfully recovered millions of dollars in compensation for these victims.

“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.”

I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

“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.
