Company Secures Millions for Use in Transvaginal Mesh Claim Settlements

Posted on Jul 05, 2012

According to an article on The Sacramento Bee, Legal-Bay has recently acquired $5 million which it has designated for lawsuit funding in vaginal or transvaginal mesh case suits, as well as those involving other mesh cases such as hernia mesh patches, Kugel mesh and bladder slings. Legal-Bay, a company that provides lawsuit funding to plaintiffs in these and similar cases, has also committed a large amount of money to the Johnson & Johnson and DePuy hip implant recall. 

A transvaginal or vaginal mesh case is a type of surgical fabric that is used to treat bladder or pelvic prolapse. It can help to reinforce the vaginal wall or create a bladder or pelvic sling. Recently, various problems were reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding these mesh cases, prompting the FDA to issue a warning and many lawsuits to be filed. 

Officials have estimated that more than 70,000 transvaginal or vaginal mesh cases were sold and implanted in the five years before the FDA’s warning. Other possibly defective mesh products, such as hernia mesh patches and Kugel mesh, are not even included in that number. Experts with Legal-Bay expect the mesh implants litigation to be among the largest in history. 

Transvaginal meshes can lead to a number of problems, including pain, bleeding, infection, organ perforation, urinary problems, and more. If you are suffering the ill effects of a transvaginal or vaginal mesh, now is not the time to be shy about your feminine problems. You deserve to get the medical and financial help that you need.
