Although there are said to be thousands of injury reports related to the placement of transvaginal surgical mesh, the number of legal claims brought against manufacturers or others who may be responsible for related injuries sustained by patients is relatively low in comparison. This may be attributed to a number of factors, but is likely a result of a lack of knowledge about a patient’s legal rights to compensation in these matters.
Since the FDA issued a warning about the dangers of, or risks linked to the transvaginal mesh in 2011, a number of personal injury lawyers who focus on pharmaceutical defects or defective drug cases have taken an interest in helping female patients and their loved ones who have suffered from the side effects of this medical device understand that legal help is available for them. Injured patients may be entitled to legal compensation for related medical costs, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and other damages associated with having an implanted transvaginal mesh.
Individuals who feel they may have a valid legal claim after experiencing transvaginal mesh implant side effects may benefit by seeking the services of an experienced transvaginal mesh sling lawyer who will offer them a free case evaluation or in-person consultation to discuss the merits of their claim. This first step can be a lifeline to injured victims, or their loved ones. Especially in the event of a transvaginal mesh wrongful death, this helping hand can provide some measure of justice for what they have been forced to endure.
