Do You Have a TVM Lawsuit?
While transvaginal mesh devices have helped thousands of women to resume their quality of life after suffering from symptoms associated with stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, a condition characterized by a weakened pelvic floor, others have not been so lucky. Women throughout the U.S. may consider filing a TVM lawsuit if they have experienced local organ perforation or damage, pain during intercourse, bleeding, urinary tract problems, and infections caused by the device.
Women in Tennessee who have been fitted with a TVM implant and who have experienced adverse complications have a limited period of time to properly file a TVM lawsuit. If potential plaintiffs fail to do so within this statute of limitations, which varies from state to state, they risk forever forfeiting their legal right to seek compensation for current injuries or any other conditions that may develop that have not yet become apparent. Contact Attorney Group for Tennessee to find out whether or not you still have time.
A multidistrict litigation pending in federal court in West Virginia is now home to most of the 40,000 TVM lawsuits filed against several manufacturers, including C.R. Bard, Ethicon, American Medical Systems, Johnson & Johnson, and Boston Scientific. According to plaintiffs, these device makers failed to adequately research their products and inform the public of potential complications prior to releasing them into the market. In March 2013, Ethicon was ordered to pay $11 million in damages. C.R. Bard also lost a $2 million TVM lawsuit in August 2013 over its Avaulta implant.
