Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Defective Pharmaceutical Devices
Transvaginal mesh is surgically inserted and stretched along the vaginal wall. In October 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to medical providers and consumers regarding severe complications associated with transvaginal mesh. The FDA subsequently issued a further warning in July 2011 urging surgeons to consider alternative treatment for pelvic organ prolapse.
Unfortunately, advertisements failed to explain the complications associated with transvaginal mesh. Consumers have suffered severe side effects from the device, including:
- Mesh erosion
- Return of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence
- Perforation of bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- Vaginal scarring
If you or a loved one has endured complications from transvaginal mesh, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
