If you experienced side effects stemming from transvaginal mesh, it is advisable to file your complaint in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) involving transvaginal mesh lawsuits, rather than to join a vaginal mesh class action lawsuit.
Why You Should File Your Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit in a MDL rather than a Vaginal Mesh Class Action
This approach is especially beneficial for transvaginal mesh lawsuits, since it allows your case to maintain its individuality, despite the fact that the type of injury prompting you to file the claim may be similar to others pending in the MDL. Each claim has a different degree of severity, so when your case goes to trial, it will be heard individually by a single judge.
If you simply join a vaginal mesh class action lawsuit, you may not walk away with the individual compensation you deserve for the pain, suffering, lost wages and other injuries you claim to have been caused. Transvaginal mesh belongs to a class of devices used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women.
Right now, there are several multidistrict litigations pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia involving transvaginal mesh lawsuits, brought by women who allegedly suffered the following side effects:
- mesh erosion
- recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
- urinary problems
- pain during sexual intercourse
- bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation during insertion
