Get Legal Help for Surgical Mesh Injuries
In the last decade or so, transvaginal mesh has been touted as one solution for treating conditions like pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence in women. However, in 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a report about the serious health risks of using transvaginal mesh to correct these problems.
At Rhine Law Firm, P.C., we have kept up-to-date on these developments. Our attorneys are currently litigating, investigating and accepting claims for those who have suffered serious injuries as a result of transvaginal mesh erosion and other problems. From our office in Wilmington, we accept cases throughout North Carolina and nationwide.
Protecting Clients’ Rights to Fair Compensation for Mesh Injuries
Many individuals do not realize at first that the mesh could be the cause of ongoing symptoms, attributing them to some other complication from the surgery or original diagnosis. Some of the common issues associated with transvaginal mesh include:
- Chronic pain in the pelvic area, long after surgical recovery
- Painful intercourse or difficulty having intercourse
- Urinary problems
- Perforation of internal organs
- Protrusion of the mesh
Correcting these problems can be difficult. They often require more surgery or may not even be reversible, leading to long-term health issues as well as pain and suffering.
Our experienced Wilmington product liability lawyers look at all your options for recovering compensation for additional surgeries and long-term damages you may suffer as a result of faulty transvaginal mesh. We have brought claims against major manufacturers such as Boston Scientific, Ethicon, and Johnson & Johnson, as well as medical professionals who may not have followed the proper standards of care when implementing the mesh or when investigating all possible solutions to the patient’s health problems.
If you have suffered complications from transvaginal mesh injuries, we invite you to contact us at (910) 772-9960 to discuss your case in a free initial consultation. Office hours 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Evening and weekend appointments also available. We know the law and we will outline all of your options to maximize the compensation to which you are entitled by law.
