Women who have received transvaginal mesh implants have reported severe side effects such as infections, urinary tract complications, bleeding, pain during intercourse, local organ damage, and mesh erosion. Additionally, a recent study found that approximately 10 percent of women fitted with a TVM implant suffered from mesh erosion within 12 months after they were first implanted with the device.
If you feel as though you have a TVM claim, it is important to seek legal counsel to ensure that you are filing your lawsuit with California’s statute of limitations. Failure to properly and timely file may result in the loss of your right to seek compensation forever. Attorney Group for California can inform you whether or not you still have time.
By July 2012, several TVM lawsuits had begun to go to trial at state levels. In that month, a California Supreme Court jury returned a $5.5 million verdict against C.R. Bard in regards to the company’s Avaulta Plus device. More than 40,000 TVM lawsuits are currently pending in districts across the U.S. against Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, and C.R. Bard. The first Ethicon lawsuit ended with an $11 million award in March 2013, and five months later, C.R. Bard lost a Avaulta trial at the federal level and was ordered to pay $2 million.
