Are you one of the 3,791,508 residents of Oklahoma and have previously had a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery, and had the trans vaginal mesh sling inserted? If so, you might be eligible for legal compensation. Within the last 3 years, there have been over 1,000 reports of side effects. In July 2011, the FDA announced that women who pursued to use the transvaginal mesh as opposed to other options, are at a much higher risk in developing mesh-like complications. Due to the fact the product manufacturers did not warn anybody of this risk, people are coming forward with claims against them to get help with pain and suffering, as well as medical expenses.
The following Oklahoma cities are included:
- Oklahoma City
- Broken Arrow
- Midwest City
