If you live in Kentucky and you have experienced medical complications from a transvaginal mesh implant, commonly referred to as TVM, you may consider a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. A large number of transvaginal mesh manufacturers have been accused of failing to properly test their products prior to making them available to surgeons and patients.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit
One medical device company, C.R. Bard, is facing thousands of lawsuits in a centralized federal multidistrict transvaginal mesh litigation. In August 2014, C.R. Bard agreed to settle over 500 of those transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
The increasing number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits includes complaints that transvaginal mesh, which is implanted to treat female stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, erodes over time and causes infections and debilitating injuries. A number of confidential settlements have already been reported, in addition to the recent settlement by C.R. Bard.
Pain and Suffering
If you or a loved one has experienced pain or other complications related to a transvaginal mesh implant, financial compensation may be available. Pursuing a claim against the implant manufacturer may allow you to recover financial damages for injuries inflicted by the negligence of the manufacturer. Although transvaginal mesh has been implanted in thousands of women to strengthen a vaginal wall or support a weak bladder or urethra, lawsuits claim there was not enough research was done to ensure the safety of the product.
Some women even endured surgery to have the mesh removed, only to learn that the mesh had eroded into the wall of the vagina, according to many lawsuits. Aside from infection and bleeding, reported side effects have included bladder perforation, discomfort during sexual relations and pain while urinating. One Kentucky woman, a recipient of a Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh product, claimed in a lawsuit that the mesh manufacturer purposely misled the FDA and public regarding the safety of mesh products.
