Transvaginal mesh devices have been in use since the late 1990’s and are used to treat stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and other similar disorders. Boston Scientific was the first manufacturer to introduce a transvaginal mesh product to the market and soon after, many other medical device manufacturers were producing and selling surgical mesh products. Many manufacturers like Ethicon (subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) were able to obtain Food and Drug Administration approval simply due to the fact that their product closely resembled Boston Scientific’s original surgical mesh device.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
When a manufacturer puts profits over safety, the manufacturer of a dangerous product may be liable for the damages associated with an injury caused by the use of their product. Patients who have suffered as a result of a transvaginal mesh device may be entitled to financial compensation from the manufacturer. Before a victim can collect compensation, however, a personal injury claim must be filed. A personal injury claim is simply a legal action taken by an individual who has been harmed by the negligent or careless actions of another person or corporation. There are many phases to a personal injury lawsuit, and without the representation of a skilled attorney, a claim can be difficult to navigate.
