When you have an experienced defective medical device attorney handling your case, you can dictate what happens.

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 for repairing these conditions in recent years has been the use of a 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 caused many other medical issues, including the erosion of the mesh that can result in re-prolapse, infections, injuries to the bladder and other pelvic organs.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury associated with the use of a transvaginal mesh, you may have a grounds for a legitimate transvaginal mesh claims.
