Helping Those Who Have Suffered Due to Defective Mesh Products
Medical issues such as stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can develop later in life when abdominal and pelvic muscles weaken or, in some cases, after childbirth. The primary concern with these conditions is that the organs of the pelvic region no longer stay in place and can sag, putting unnecessary stress on them.
One of the more popular methods of repair for these conditions in recent years has been the use of transvaginal mesh, sometimes referred to as a bladder sling. While these devices have proven to be effective at holding the intended organs in place, they have also been shown to be the cause of many different medical issues, including the erosion of the mesh that can result in re-prolapse, injuries to the bladder and other pelvic organs, infections and other issues.
If you or a loved one has suffered any kind of injury associated with the use of transvaginal mesh, you may have a claim for damages. These are complex cases that require the attention of a skilled Ohio transvaginal mesh attorney. Be sure that you secure the best representation available for your case.
Many people are hesitant to pursue these types of claims because they don't want to file a lawsuit against their doctors. While a number of these claims involve negligence on the part of the doctor, the majority of the claims are filed against the manufacturer of the product or other parties. In many cases, filing suit against the doctor may not be necessary.
