Crucial Conference Status on Transvaginal Mesh Being Held in June
Today, June 2nd, U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin of the Southern District of West Virginia will hold a crucial conference status meeting where the major manufacturers of transvaginal mesh and sling products intend to ask for a moratorium on current or future claims. In this case, a moratorium would prevent other women harmed by transvaginal mesh products from coming forward and filing suit against the manufacturers, even as more and more women continue to file suit for pain and complications caused by these products. These manufacturers include: Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems, Cook Medical and Neomedic.
A significant number of the woman who have had transvaginal mesh or sling implanted have faced numerous complications and chronic pain. The material that is used in these products can erode through the vaginal lining which can cause nerve damage and lead to severe infections. These mesh products are difficult to remove fully, leaving women to face expensive medical treatment, pain management and in many cases, the inability to have sexual relationships again. Clearly, a moratorium would be a big strike against those who have not yet filed suit against transvaginal mesh manufacturers.
The complications caused by these devices have left many women to suffer with horrid recoveries, large medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing pain. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of the complications from the transvaginal mesh device.
