Women who have had repeated pregnancies and childbirths or those of experiencing menopause have an increased chance of suffering from pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Transvaginal mesh (TVM) products are implanted into a woman’s vagina to help reinforce the pelvic floor and treat the symptoms associated with these conditions.
However, thousands of women have allegedly experienced adverse and life-threatening side effects due to these devices, including urinary tract complications, bleeding at the mesh site, severe infections and local organ damage. As a result, patients in Arkansas may consider seeking legal counsel to learn more about their rights and whether they are eligible to file a TVM lawsuit and recover damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost wages.
If you feel you may have a claim against a manufacturer for TVM injuries, it is important to remember that there is typically a statute of limitations in place on such cases. Each state has a specific time period in which potential plaintiffs are eligible to file a TVM lawsuit; those in Arkansas must do so within three years of the date of the injury in order to retain your legal right to compensation. If you fail to do so, you may forever be prevented from recovering damages for your condition.
Thousands of TVM lawsuits are pending in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia against several manufacturers of TVM products, including American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific and C.R. Bard. Plaintiffs allege that the TVM implants are defective and can cause serious complications that often require additional surgeries to rectify.
