Transvaginal mesh lawsuit settlements have reached a peak with new development from Legal-Bay, LLC.
The lawsuit settlement funding company Legal-Bay LLC announced on June 4, 2014, a new lawsuit funding program for women with proposed transvaginal mesh lawsuit settlements in cases against American Systems.
“Endo estimates that it will pay an aggregate pre-tax amount of approximately $830 million in connection with the resolution of these claims,” the parent company of American Medical Systems, Endo Health Solutions, recently said in a statement.
Have you had serious complications after receiving Pelvic Mesh?
Act Now. You may be entitled to financial compensation.
Currently, there are about 20,000 women who have suffered serious side effects of vaginal mesh, including mesh erosion, extreme pain—especially in the abdomen—mesh protrusion and pelvic pain. Many of these complications require that the mesh be surgically removed, which can complicate the issues.
The average settlement amount for transvaginal mesh lawsuits against American Medical Systems is typically $40,000, but women who’ve been seriously injured by the device are receiving settlements of $250,000 or more. This new settlement program works to help the more seriously injured victims, which includes pre-settlement cash advances for women who have not received a settlement letter yet.
Women who are waiting for a settlement and need cash or who are planning to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit following complications due to transvaginal mesh removal surgery should contact a lawyer who specializes in these cases to determine the best course of action. An advocate who is well-versed in mesh cases has the best understanding of how to receive a favorable outcome.
