Millions Awarded to Transvaginal Mesh Victims

by Staff Blogger | October 25th, 2016

At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we help the victims of defective medical devices get the compensation they deserve for their injuries. From hip replacements to bone grafts, we’ve seen the devastation defective medical devices can have on patients. Potentially the most devastating of these cases deals with defective transvaginal mesh (TVM) implants.

TVM implants were designed to treat women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The mesh is implanted to keep the patient’s organs in place inside the body cavity. Due to defective design and/or materials, many TVM implants have been known to fail, resulting in painful and potentially life-threatening complications. These complications most often can only be rectified by additional surgeries.

After multiple FDA safety warnings, transvaginal mesh implants are still being used in surgeries today, putting additional patients at risk. However, there is something victims can do to get the justice they deserve.

If you suffered complications after a TVM implant, give us a call immediately. You may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer. Many victims have already won lawsuits in the millions of dollars, and the experienced TVM injury lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough may be able to help you get a similar verdict.
