San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
After a two week long trial and countless months of worry, Donna Cisson can now celebrate a huge win for herself and other women who have been harmed by transvaginal mesh implants. The Cisson case (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-00195, U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia) started earlier in July, but was quickly stopped when a mistrial occurred. The second visit to the court In August went off seamlessly as the jury awarded Cisson $250,000 in compensatory damages and $1.75 million in punitive damages.
With this news comes a huge sigh of relief for many women who have been affected by faulty transvaginal mesh implants. Parilman and Associates, a national law firm, that has been handling a number of these cases was very pleased with these results. “A win for Donna Cisson will go a long way to help others, as we seek justice for the thousands of victims of transvaginal mesh implants,” stated Joshua Parilman Esq.
Manufacturers C.R. Bard, AMS, Johnson & Johnson Ethicon, Boston Scientific and many other are all facing similar charges as women are speaking up about the alleged problems they face since having the implant placed. For many of these women they have had to endure pain, often time another revision surgery as well as emotional distress from their symptoms. Media coverage of cases like Cisson’s is helping to spread the word that women who may have been hurt by these implants no longer have to suffer in silence. “We want people to know that if they are in pain after having a transvaginal mesh implant placed, we can help them,” explained Joshua Parilman Esq.
Law firms like Parilman and Associates are eager to connect with the victims of these implants. While many people are confused by how much a legal team can help them, it’s important to start a dialogue with an attorney who has experience with these types of claims. People are often surprised by how easy it is to get started, which is why firms like Parilman and Associates work so hard to spread the word about the benefits of discussing your case with a trusted injury law firm.
While the Cisson case was good news for the victims of these implants there is still plenty of work to do as more people seek justice from the manufactures of vaginal mesh implants.
