According to one of the largest studies investigating the potential side effects of transvaginal mesh, 10 percent of the 12,000 women analyzed suffered from mesh erosion within one year after receiving a TVM implant. Women have also allegedly experienced other complications including bleeding at the mesh site, infections, local organ damage, perforation, and urinary tract issues.
While each state’s statute of limitation varies between one to six years depending on the type of claim, it is important to pursue a claim as soon as possible in order to ensure you have the best possible chance of recovering damages for your injuries. Failing to file a lawsuit before the prescribed window closes may mean forfeiting your right to seek compensation for your current condition or for any future injuries that may develop at a later date.
A Kentucky woman recently filed a TVM lawsuit after allegedly suffering from complications due to her implant. Although her TVM lawsuit was transferred to federal court, a judge moved it back to state court when it was determined that both the plaintiff and the defendant resided in the same state, thus disqualifying the plaintiff from trying her case at the federal level. There are more than 40,000 pending TVM lawsuits against several manufacturers throughout the U.S. The majority of these claims have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation in federal court in West Virginia.
