Transvaginal Mesh Implant Lawsuits On The Rise In The U.S.
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) July 10, 2013 - Transvaginal mesh implants have been compared to having a cheese grater in one's pelvic area.
“If you read the news, listen to the radio or watch TV, you will no doubt be aware of the increasing number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits across the nation,” stated Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “By all accounts, the pain the women suing experience is life-altering and just about irreversible, as further surgery may not remove the mesh.”
Brought to the marketplace in the early 1990s, it was not long before complaints cropped up about the mesh kit's side effects. It was not until 2008 that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning.
“Despite the warning, surgeries continued, complications were the norm, not the exception, and hundreds of women discovered they were not alone. One thing led to another and women began suing the medical device makers,” outlined Monroe.
Many of the women suffering from the side effects of a mesh kit implantation live in constant pain, suffer from perforated organs, infections, painful intercourse and even urinary incontinence ---- the very thing the mesh sling was supposed to prevent. Their injuries are life-altering and often severe. They face enormous medical bills seeking to have their lives and health returned to them. Many of the women who opted to sue the medical device makers are facing challenging financial situations, with huge doctor's bills, in addition to their other monthly payments. They may not be able to work any longer. They need financial help to make it to trial.
“This is where a litigation funding company would enter the picture,” Monroe indicated. ”They would only need to contact a lawsuit loan company, fill out an application for pre-settlement funding, have their case assessed, and then wait for the lawsuit cash advance to arrive in their bank account, within 48 hours or less.”
While lawsuit funding is not for every plaintiff, it does have many benefits worth checking into. It may be worth a call to a litigation funding company or researching more online about the various options open to a plaintiff seeking a lawsuit loan.
