Thousands of women in the U.S. have been fitted with transvaginal mesh (TVM) to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse that may develop following repeated pregnancies, childbirths or during menopause. Thousands of women have filed TVM lawsuits, alleging that they suffered from serious and life-threatening complications due to the devices. According to one of the largest studies analyzing TVM devices, 10 percent of women who had been fitted with TVM experienced mesh erosion within 12 months following the initial implantation.
Among the allegations in pending TVM lawsuits are claims of mesh erosion, infections, pain during intercourse or urination, development of scar tissues and organ damage. A multidistrict litigation has been established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, for the consolidation of TVM lawsuits against Ethicon, Johnson & Johnson, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific and American Medical Systems.
Women in Georgia who have been adversely affected should consider pursuing their claim as soon as possible. The statute of limitations in Georgia for filing a TVM lawsuit is two years from the date on which the injury occurred. Should potential plaintiffs fail to properly and timely file a TVM lawsuit within the limitation period, they may be barred from seeking compensation for their injuries in the future.
