After an FDA warning this year about the safety risks of using transvaginal mesh devices to repair pelvic organ prolapse, many people are trying to find out whether the mesh implant they received is included in the warning and what legal rights they have for their injuries.
Lawyers say that finding the proper transvaginal mesh manufacturer to pursue in a defective implant claim can be tricky since at least 14 different companies made the devices over the past decade. However, with the high chance of complications, it is worth the trouble of having an experienced attorney examine your case.
The FDA has received over 4,000 reports of patients having mesh problems such as bleeding, infection, pain, organ puncture, vaginal tissue erosion and bulging. Studies have shown that more than 15% of those who received the implants could suffer from side effects.
A transvaginal mesh manufacturer is liable for any injuries or damages caused by a defective product it sells. Lawyers have already helped those injured by these mesh implants recover millions to help with their medical treatment, pain and suffering.
Check this list to see if your transvaginal mesh manufacturer may be among those affected by the FDA warning:
