Millions of women have received transvaginal mesh implant devices. Vaginal mesh implants are used after hysterectomies and to treat other conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The medical device is made of a synthetic material in a hammock-like design, which is implanted to support pelvic organs. Unfortunately, the mesh devices, including bladder slings, have caused numerous complications and injuries after implantations.
Some of the complications believed to be related to vaginal mesh implants include bleeding, pelvic pain, organ perforation, infection, painful intercourse, and device erosion
Mesh-related complications are not only painful; they can also be very costly, both economically and non-economically. Vaginal mesh lawsuits allow injured women to seek damages, or compensation, for the complications, as well as the additional medical procedures directly related to the removal of the faulty implant. Some of the more common damages include economic costs like medical expenses and lost wages.
Non-economic losses include compensation for pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and loss of spousal consortium.
There are currently an estimated 50,000 pending vaginal mesh liability cases pending in federal court and thousands more in state courts. Mesh manufacturers such as C.R. Bard,Endo, andColoplast have settled many of their lawsuits out of court. In both of Endo’s recent settlement offers plaintiffs received around $40,000 each.
More recently, several cases have settled for $1,000,000 or more and a group of settlements between $100,000 and $200,000 is being paid. The settlements depend on the nature of the injury and harm caused by the device.
