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.
