PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY For TRANSVAGINAL MESH CASES
Many pelvic disorders in women are treated with a transvaginal mesh device, or a synthetic webbing meant to support tissue that has either been damaged or surgically altered. Two of the primary conditions treated with transvaginal meshes are pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). For all the good they have done women since their introduction to the medical world, they may have done even more harm. In 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released an official warning of the dangers of transvaginal meshes, and the lawsuits have been coming ever since.
If you have undergone transvaginal surgery, were given a transvaginal mesh, and are now facing complications and dangerous side effects, you may need to file or opt into a mass tort against the device’s manufacturer. At The Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr., PLLC, our San Antonio personal injury attorney is ready and willing to take on even the biggest competition on behalf of his clients in need.

COMPLICATIONS CAUSED DIRECTLY BY TRANSVAGINAL MESH DEVICES
As the FDA continued to study transvaginal mesh devices and how they were affecting women of all ages, more and more complications arose. Recently, in 2016, they reclassified most transvaginal mesh treatments as highly risky to the patient, up from moderately risky. The construction of the devices seem to be too unreliable for the sensitivity of the area it treats, and yet manufacturers have done little to correct these hazards.
Dangerous consequences caused by transvaginal meshes include:
- Erosion to soft tissues
- Chronic pain or stinging sensation
- Infection and illness
- Unexplained bleeding
- Irritation and discomfort during intercourse
- Problems with urinary tract
If you are using a transvaginal mesh device and have experienced any of these side effects, it could be the direct cause. Please consult with a medical physician as soon as you can as conditions could worsen into potentially life-threatening situations.
COMPENSATION ON A GRAND SCALE
Women suffering from health conditions due to dangerous transvaginal meshes often require extensive treatments to correct the disorders. As a faulty medical device is something that affects more than just one person, a mass tort may be used to combine multiple grievances or complaints into one concise case.
Compensation that may be granted to patients suffering from complications include coverage for:
- Initial medical treatments
- Additional surgeries
- Reduced standard of living
- Emotional pain
To start down the path of proper legal action, you only need to tell our attorneys what has happened to you in an initial consultation. With our San Antonio mass tort attorney’s guidance and experience, we can determine if you should file an individual lawsuit, or pursue justice on a larger scale with other plaintiffs. The longer you wait, the less likely you will be eligible to collect any monies from the transvaginal mesh device manufacturer. Do not delay. Contact us today.
