Woman Awarded $100 Million in Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

TheProductLawyers.com reports on a 2015 settlement involving a former bank-teller who claimed to have suffered serious side effects following a transvaginal mesh procedure. In the May 2015 trial, the plaintiff stated that the implants she received, which had been manufactured by Boston Scientific, eroded and caused her medical problems including constant pain and an inability to engage in sexual intercourse. The Delaware jury awarded her $25 million in compensatory damages and an additional $75 million in punitive damages.

The device, which is manufactured by several companies including Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, Coloplast Corp and C.R. Bard, is used to treat both pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Those procedures have now become the reason behind thousands of lawsuits against the companies claiming that not only do the devices cause severe side effects but that the companies were aware of the faulty design and did not inform doctors.

Many women who have undergone surgeries involving mesh have claimed the device causes bleeding, infection, organ perforation, severe pelvic or vaginal pain, inability to engage in sexual intercourse, erosion of mesh through the vagina, recurrent prolapse or incontinence, vaginal shrinkage and neuro-muscular problems. As a result of the mounting cases, the FDA has reclassified the device as “high risk” and issued orders for the manufacturers to address safety concerns and demonstrate the device’s safety and effectiveness.

As these cases are only expected to increase in number, attorneys at Banville Law are working to make sure that those who believe they have suffered adverse side effects as a result of a transvaginal mesh implant are given the important opportunity to explore their legal rights fully. Qualifying individuals may be entitled to legal action and financial compensation. Banville Law is currently offering free case evaluations for those parties.
