Across the country, women have filed more than 75,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits against Boston Scientific and a number of other companies because of their transvaginal mesh products. These devices have been proven in multiple trials to cause serious injuries in consumers. In a recent claim, Boston Scientific agreed to pay $119 million in order to settle roughly 3,000 cases brought by women who claim they suffered severe complications after using the product.

How Serious Is the Issue?
Transvaginal mesh and bladder slings are intended to treat issues such as pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. The devices have been mass marketed across the country as a safe solution, but they have put tens of thousands of people at risk of experiencing adverse side effects.
Boston Scientific, as well as American Medical Systems and Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit, are all facing an onslaught of lawsuits from women who have encountered physical pain and suffering, emotional turmoil and medical bills after using the products. There are 22,000 lawsuits pending against Boston Scientific alone, and the company has reportedly set aside more than $1 billion for legal expenses. It is estimated that in addition to the plaintiffs who have taken action, there are still thousands more women who are injured and have yet to pursue a claim.
The Compensation Available
Personal injury lawsuits can serve to compensate victims for their financial, physical and emotional losses. If you have experienced an injury due to transvaginal mesh, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your medical bills, the time you had to miss from work, the pain you felt and the loss of enjoyment of life you may have experienced. If the complications were so severe that you lost a loved one, you may receive compensation for damages such as a loss of financial support or your mental anguish.
