Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court records indicate that more than 30,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits are now pending against the manufacturers of transvaginal mesh in several consolidated litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims similarly allege that transvaginal mesh products used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused recipients to suffer serious and painful complications. The manufacturers of these devices are also accused of failing to provide doctors and patients with adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with their transvaginal mesh devices.
