A recent study found that 10 percent of women who have received a transvaginal mesh implant experience mesh erosion within 12 months after they first received the device. Many women across the country have reported complications such as pain, bleeding, organ perforation and damage, scarring and pain during intercourse.
If you have experienced one or more of the above side effects, you may be able to pursue a claim for compensation in Oklahoma. Due to the statute of limitations in Oklahoma, it is important to file your TVM lawsuit within two years from the date on which the injury occurred. If you fail to do so, you may not be able to recover damages for your injuries at a later date or farther down the road if you develop additional complications.
A multidistrict litigation has been established in the U.S. District Court, District of West Virginia for pretrial proceedings of nearly 40,000 TVM lawsuits. Hundreds of women in Oklahoma have filed TVM lawsuits against the makers of products that they believe caused severe injuries following gynecological or urological procedures. The plaintiffs claim that the manufacturers did not adequately test the devices for use on vaginal and bladder tissues and that they were never properly warned about the potential complications that could occur if their bodies did not tolerate the mesh.
