Women in Florida who have experienced infections, organ damage, scar tissue, vaginal pain and mesh erosion following a transvaginal mesh implantation may be able to file a TVM lawsuit and seek compensation for their injuries. While TVM has been implanted in thousands of women to treat the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, plaintiffs in Florida may consider seeking legal counsel if they suffered injury after receiving a TVM implant.
However, while it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible to determine if you have a case, it is important to do so within the statute of limitations for Florida. This timeframe exists to provide potential plaintiffs with a specific window in which they are eligible to file a TVM lawsuit; should you fail to do so before the statute of limitations expires, you may forever forfeit your right to seek damages for your injuries. Each state has a different set of laws and may vary from one year to six years. Women in Florida have four years from the date on which the injury occurred to pursue their claims.
Several manufacturers have been named in TVM lawsuits, including Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific. A multidistrict litigation has been established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia to handle TVM lawsuits alleging serious complications and life-threatening injuries as a result of these companies’ TVM products.
