Vaginal Mesh Lawyer

Starting in the 1950’s doctors providing hernia repair surgeries began using a material they called trans vaginal mesh as a means to repair weak points in specific areas of a patient’s anatomy. By implanting this durable material, doctors could reinforce weakened anatomical structures that would otherwise fail. This therapy was seen as a way to help patients regain normal function when their own anatomies had become unable to maintain it.

In the sixty years since the introduction of this treatment, there have millions of implants of trans vaginal mesh across the U.S. and throughout the world. This therapy was first used as a means to treat simple hernias, but its use has been expanded to include other medical conditions, where clinical conditions could be remedied by reinforcing weakened anatomical structures.

Specifically, doctors have used trans vaginal mesh to repair the condition Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), where internal organs become displaced due to weakness in the pelvic muscles. Another condition treated by implanting trans vaginal mesh is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI).

But in its history of use, trans vaginal mesh has come under fire as dangerous. By 2016, the treatment has fallen out of favor due to its potential for unwanted side effects including severe physical harm. Among the observed side effects can be lesions on the vagina, as well as the erosion and even the perforation of internal organs. Clearly, these are serious conditions that need to be addressed and which can include major medical bills to remedy.

With this history of painful and debilitating injury and the potential for major medical costs to fix them, it’s no wonder that thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women who have suffered injuries from vaginal mesh implants. If you or someone you love has the misfortune of being injured by their treatment with vaginal mesh, it may be time to seek out a vaginal mesh lawyer to file a suit on their behalf.

Like any medical issue, proving damages can be a complex and highly technical process. To win a judgment, you’ll need to convince a jury not only that you sustained the injury but that the medical procedure (or the existence of the therapeutic material in your body) was the cause of this injury. This process often involves expert witnesses and medical professionals, and this testimony is always subject to interpretation by judges and juries.

Because they are familiar with medical laws and are used to working with expert witnesses in this field, an experienced vaginal mesh lawyer can best represent you in this specific kind of case. A lawsuit involving trans vaginal mesh is unlike any other kind of medical damages case, and a legal professional that has experience with this kind of litigation can help you present your case in the best possible way to maximize your chances of reaching a positive financial settlement.

Anyone injured by the implantation of trans vaginal mesh could seek relief from their pain, suffering and medical bills through the courts. And any patient seeking this relief should start by consulting a vaginal mesh lawyer to understand their options.

If you or a loved one is in need of a professional vaginal mesh lawyer, Long Island Law is there for you.
