In February 2013 the nation’s first trial involving Ethicon’s vaginal mesh resulted in a jury award of more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to plaintiff Linda Gross.
In June 2012 a jury in California state court awarded $5.5 million to a couple who suffered life-altering injuries as a result of the wife’s vaginal mesh implant.
In an effort to relieve her incontinence, the wife, Christine Scott, had been surgically implanted with a mesh product called the Avaulta and manufactured by C.R. Bard Medical. The Avaulta mesh eventually cut into Christine Scott’s colon, requiring her to undergo at least eight more surgeries.
If, like Christine Scott, you have suffered as a result of having received a surgical mesh implant, contact the Rottenstein Law Group. We will evaluate your case and—if we determine that you might be entitled to compensation from your implant’s manufacturer—we will file an individual lawsuit on your behalf.
You Need a Lawyer Willing to File an Individual Surgical Mesh Lawsuit
In most instances, the best way to obtain the most compensation for your injuries is to find a lawyer who is willing to file an individual lawsuit on your behalf. Unlike class action claimants, who are forced to share their awards with the other members of the class, the claimants in individual lawsuits often recover fair amounts for their losses.
The Rottenstein Law Group files individual lawsuits on behalf of patients injured by potentially dangerous drugs or medical devices. The firm is currently accepting vaginal mesh cases from patients who believe they were injured by a surgical mesh implant, a vaginal mesh implant, or a bladder sling.
Many Mesh Products Are Still on the Market
While several brands of mesh have been discontinued or voluntarily recalled by their manufacturers, there are still many vaginal mesh/surgical mesh products on the market, and they are wreaking havoc on many women’s lives.
A Recall of Surgical Mesh Is Not Necessary For You To Recover Money
To file a lawsuit for injuries you suffered as a result of a drug or medical device, the drug or medical device doesn’t have to have been recalled. Many women have suffered, and they’re filing lawsuits against vaginal mesh manufacturers to get compensated for their injuries.
