Transvaginal & Physio Mesh

Defective Medical Device Attorneys Assisting Victims in Traverse City and Grand Rapids

Transvaginal mesh is meant to serve as a permanent fix for women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, which are medical conditions that some people suffer after childbirth, a hysterectomy, or menopause. Unfortunately, not all transvaginal mesh is safe, and serious complications like infections or perforations of organs and tissues may ensue after the mesh is implanted. The FDA issued warnings about transvaginal mesh in 2008, and in 2016, it changed the classification of the device from moderate risk to high risk.

If you have been hurt because of your use of this product, the Traverse City transvaginal mesh lawyers at the Neumann Law Group can help. As an award-winning attorney with extensive experience handling claims involving defective medical devices, Kelly Neumann has a solid track record of getting results for victims. Attorney Neumann and her team of experienced product liability attorneys are immediately available to inform you of your rights, outline your options and help you bring a claim to hold the manufacturer responsible for your injuries financially accountable.

Transvaginal Mesh Injuries

Many women were implanted with transvaginal mesh before reports of complications came and before the FDA’s 2008 warning. Transvaginal mesh injuries are often quite serious and may require further surgeries to remove the mesh. Sometimes the pain after a surgery to correct the problem will last for the rest of a woman’s life. The only available remedy for many people who suffer transvaginal mesh injuries is to file a product liability lawsuit. Many lawsuits have been filed against manufacturers of transvaginal mesh.

A common allegation against a manufacturer is a design defect. Some mesh devices use polypropylene and collagen, which are associated with negative reactions due to their ability to hold onto high levels of bacteria. Other potential design issues are inelasticity and biomechanical problems that result in shrinkage and deformation. Another common allegation in transvaginal mesh litigation is a failure to warn or a failure to conduct adequate tests, which are marketing defects. A transvaginal mesh attorney in Traverse City or Grand Rapids must prove that the manufacturer knew or should have known about the risk of harm, based on the scientific, technical, or medical information that could have been accessed at the time that a particular unit of the product left the manufacturer’s control.

Damages Available for Defective Transvaginal Mesh

If you can establish that the manufacture is liable for your injuries, you may recover compensatory damages, including economic and noneconomic losses. Economic losses may include medical costs, such as prescription pain medication and the costs of future surgeries, as well as household services and wage loss for the time that you needed to take off from work. You may also be able to recover noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. These intangible losses in the context of transvaginal mesh injuries may be considerable.

How Long Do You Have to Bring a Michigan Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit?

Under M.C.L. section 600.5805, the statute of limitations for product liability claims is just three years. This period runs from the time that the action upon which the claim is based occurred, regardless of when the harm resulted.
