Women around the country have continued to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits against the manufacturers of these devices after they needed surgery to remove the device. Vaginal mesh is use to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, but serious complications cause many women to experience severe pain and other issues.
In Philadelphia, the number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits continues to rise since the mass tort was created in February. As of August 19, 2014, Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Complex Litigation Center’s records noted that there were 859 cases filed.
Have you had serious complications after receiving Pelvic Mesh?
Act Now. You may be entitled to financial compensation.
In this city, transvaginal mesh is the second largest mass tort, but coordinating judge of the Complex Litigation Center Judge Arnold L. New said that this is not affecting the court’s ability to run smoothly and on course.
Many women have experienced painful sexual intercourse, mesh erosion, chronic severe pain and other side effects to mesh devices manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon Inc., Secant Medical and Boston Scientific Corp.
Women who were treated with transvaginal mesh for POP or stress urinary incontinence and suffered major complications leading to the surgical removal of the device may want to file their own lawsuit against the manufacturer. If this is the case, you may want to reach out to an advocate or attorney who specializes in mass tort cases to find out how to proceed with filing your lawsuit or the best steps to take in preparation for trial.
