A trans-vaginal mesh device is one which is surgically implanted into women suffering from conditions like pelvic organ prolapsed or stress urinary incontinence. This device was once highly-touted as a safe and effective way to alleviate the stress and symptoms of these painful conditions. However, thousands of women across the United States are struggling with their trans-vaginal mesh devices and are seeking the help of mesh lawyers to commence a lawsuit against the makers of these products.
In 2008, the FDA issued a statement regarding the trans-vaginal mesh and the potential need for corrective surgery following implantation. Since 2008, over 1,500 complaints were received by the FDA detailing the pain and suffering experienced by women with a defective trans-vaginal mesh device. In July, 2011, the FDA officially issued a warning stating that women who undergo trans-vaginal mesh surgery are more likely to experience complications and invasive corrective procedures.
A personal injury lawsuit is a common response to faulty and defective medical devices. Consumer products, like the trans-vaginal mesh, must be safe for use. This means that they cannot place consumers in any unreasonable risk of harm or injury from their use. In the event that a medical devices causes harm or injury, the injured patient can often sue for damages stemming from her expenses spent in order to correct the issues caused by the device. Mesh lawyers are legal representatives experienced in this type of litigation and are available to help injured plaintiffs recover just compensation.
In many jurisdictions, the law places a time limit on commencing personal injury lawsuits. In most states, there is a two-year time limit from the date of the injury (or the date the injury was discovered- statutes may vary) within which the plaintiff must bring her claim. As such, anyone suffering from a trans-vaginal mesh injury should commence a claim as soon as possible to avoid a possible bar to recovery.
