Do You Need A Lawyer In Transvaginal Mesh Claims?
Transvaginal mesh is a common medical device used in treating urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Doctors insert the mesh through the vagina to hold the rectum, cervix, and urethra in place. Despite its common use, Transvaginal mesh has constantly been linked to complications and severe side effects such as infection and pelvic pain.
Consult anIdaho Medical Malpractice Lawyer for medical device injuries if you experience side effects associated with defective or dangerous products.
Who can file a Transvaginal mesh lawsuit?
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits fall under the product liability claims. Before filing a claim, you need sufficient evidence that there was gross negligence by the surgeon, medical malpractice during the Transvaginal mesh implant, or negligence at any other stage of the procedure. Receiving the implant does not automatically qualify you to file a lawsuit.
Talk to a Medical Malpractice attorney and provide details to know whether you qualify for compensation. It matters when you had the surgery, the manufacture date of the product, and why the surgeon decided to implant the Transvaginal mesh. You may have a case if the complications were post-surgery.
What are the risks and complications of transvaginal mesh?
The Transvaginal mesh has numerous complications as a device for treating Pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The most common ones reported include pain, bleeding infection, urinary problems, and pain during intercourse. Sometimes, patients will experience mesh erosion through the same path it was inserted.
The mesh used to repair POP has risks that were not present with traditional non-mesh surgery. Additionally, a study found that there is no added advantage when using the mesh as opposed to the traditional method. Removal of this permanent implant may involve numerous surgeries before patients regain their normal lives.
Sometimes, it may not be possible to completely remove the mesh without further complications. That is why you should receive compensation if you face problems after the insertion of the Transvaginal mesh.
Filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer
Sometimes, it could be the fault of the manufacturer. Lawsuits against manufacturers seek to prove that they did not exercise their legal duty to ensure their products’ safety or provided misleading information to their clients.
Another reason for holding manufacturers responsible would be if their products were approved using weak evidence. The law requires manufacturers to:
- Test their devices properly before release.
- Create a safe method of removing their materials which must be effective.
- Warn people of injuries and complications.

You may QUALIFY TO RECEIVE UP TO $120,000 in as quickly as 90 DAYS from manufacturers of plastic “mesh”
If you had surgery for bladder control, prolapsed organs, or a partial hysterectomy since 1998, you probably had a bladder sling, pelvic mesh, or pelvic tape. These products are also known as transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape. The plastic-type materials can break into sharp shreds and migrate into internal organs, causing bleeding, pain, infection, and even death. The mesh is very difficult to remove during revision surgery.
Even if you do not have problems with your bladder sling or mesh products at present, YOU MAY HAVE A SETTLEMENT CLAIM. To learn if you qualify, call us at (208) 333-3333. The call is free, completely confidential, and with no obligation.

Comparative Negligence Rule
COMPARATIVE NEGLIGENCE RULE
Idaho follows the comparative negligence rule, which means that a court will look at both parties’ actions and level of fault in the case of a motorcycle accident.
Even if you were both driving irresponsibly, if the other driver was driving more carelessly, then you may still have a case. It’s important to recognize, however, that any fault on your part will limit the amount of damages which you can receive.
