Transvaginal mesh attorneys clarify the differences between a transvaginal mesh lawsuit and a class action lawsuit, one of the more common questions asked by women suffering from severe transvaginal mesh side effects seeking legal representation
St. Louis, MO February 27, 2013
The Onder Law Firm's transvaginal mesh side effects lawyers have consulted with hundreds of women regarding representation in transvaginal mesh products liability litigation and one of the most common questions they have been asked is "are transvaginal mesh side effects lawsuits class action lawsuits?" The women who posed this question to The Onder Law Firm's transvaginal mesh lawyers have expressed concern over being just another name on a list and only receiving a small check at the end without a detailed explanation or having their circumstances specifically addressed. Many of the women had suffered immensely and felt their quality of life had been greatly diminished. Because of the frequency of this question and the common concern of the women asking it, the attorneys handling transvaginal mesh cases have provided new information on their pelvic mesh products liability litigation website. This new information not only explains the differences between transvaginal mesh lawsuits and class action lawsuits in much greater detail, but also lists the current Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation in the United States District Court, Southern District of West Virginia (MDL Nos. 2187, 2325, 2326 and 2327) and what these lawsuits mean to women who suffered from severe side effects as a result of these products.
The FDA initially approved transvaginal placement of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in 2002 and has since issued two safety communications regarding complications from transvaginal placement of surgical mesh, the latest of which warned that the percentage of women experiencing these complications is much higher than originally estimated. The complications most commonly described to the firm's transvaginal mesh attorneys resulted from erosion of the mesh into the vaginal wall, which caused debilitating pain, infection, inflammation, bleeding and pain during intercourse.
