Being seriously injured by a product that was initially supposed to help you can be devastating, which is why our legal team handles a wide array of product liability lawsuits; those involving vaginal mesh being one of them. No matter your circumstances, our firm is here to fight for the compensation you need.
Essentially, vaginal mesh is used by surgeons and gynecologists to repair pelvic organ prolapse and to treat urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, in recent years, information has come out regarding the fact that the potential dangers posed by vaginal mesh are far greater than initially admitted by vaginal mesh manufacturers.
Despite the widespread use of vaginal mesh throughout the ’90s, many women have claimed to sustain serious injuries as a result of the mesh eroding through the vagina. Further, many doctors failed to understand the severity of this problem initially, thereby only making the issue worse.
There are a wide array of vaginal mesh products that have been defective and caused serious injury to those who use them. Some of those products include Gynemesh, Ethicon, or Gynecare–which were manufactured by Johnson & Johnson; Advantage Sling, Pinnacle. and Perfyx–manufactured by Boston Scientific Products; and Miniarc, Apogee, and Paragee–manufactured by American Medical Systems. You should understand that these are just some of the vaginal mesh products that have been reported as defective. Vaginal mesh products manufactured by C.R. Bard and Coloplast A/S have also been reported.
As with most product liability lawsuits, as long as you can prove that you were harmed due to a dangerous design, a manufacturing defect, or the failure to warn about certain safety hazards, you should have a valid claim. That being said, when it comes to vaginal mesh lawsuits specifically, if you suffer from any of the following symptoms due to your vaginal mesh, you may have a claim:
These are just some of the symptoms you may experience from defective vaginal mesh, and if you believe you have a claim for any symptoms other than the aforementioned, you should strongly consider speaking with our firm. We are here to help in any way we can.
