Transvaginal Mesh Update

Thousands upon thousands of women from all across the United States are dealing with the pain, discomfort, and frustration of complications caused by using surgical mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The group US Drug Watchdog says, “We are now calling transvaginal mesh failure issues the absolute worst mess we have ever seen for women, and the damages are literally beyond comprehension. We are also talking about a potentially huge number of US women.”

The Spencer Law Firm has dedicated women lawyers and a staff of female legal assistants to represent clients with this uniquely female issue. The Spencer Law Firm began representing clients with transvaginal mesh injuries over one year ago. We now represent over 150 such clients.

So far, thousands of federal cases involving transvaginal mesh from all across the country have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court of West Virginia. The cases were centralized into MDLs because they all contain similar sets of facts and injuries and because doing so provides the best way to resolve these matters efficiently. Because of these efficiencies, joining in these MDL actions does not require a significant time commitment on your part.

Judge Joseph R. Goodwin has done well to allow these cases to develop quickly. How much time remains for new plaintiffs to join in these MDLs remains unknown. If you have been treated for stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, we encourage you to call or e-mail us now for more information. The experience of many of the women impacted is that the complications from the use of transvaginal mesh did not show until many, many years after their surgeries. Even if you are not experiencing complications at this time, you still need to act now to protect against the unknown.
