Women Claim Transvaginal Mesh Had Painful Side Affects

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 26-Aug-2011

A handful of women have become co-plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the makers of transvaginal mesh, reports say.

The complaints were raised after doctors of each of the women used the devices during surgery to treat pelvic organ prolapsed, a condition where the pelvic muscles and tissues of older women become weak, which then causes internal organs to drop. Each of the women was urged by their doctors to repair the symptoms with transvaginal mesh.

All women in the suit underwent surgery, but conditions of each allegedly worsened. In some cases, the mesh had eroded rectum and lower abdomen tissues; in others, they developed infections, allegedly making the patients worse than before the surgery.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration issued a warning for transvaginal mesh complications in 2008, reports say; and last month, the agency issued a second warning that suggested complications with transvaginal mesh products, with some 2,800 complaints about the devices and the surgery.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
