The trial, which was concluded with a plaintiff verdict, is reportedly a landmark in the history of vaginal or bladder sling litigations. Let's hope that plaintiffs of other pending mesh sling cases also get the compensation they deserve. For news and updates about issues involving mesh devices, visit http://www.bladderslingrecall.us

Christine Scott may have gotten 5 million but the pain she has to endure is probably priceless. This is how sorry the victims may be. It may not be a wonder why there are so many cases filed against manufacturers of vaginal mesh. For more details, visit http://www.prweb.com/releases/rottenstein-law...

This news may bring a light of hope to other millions of women who may have suffered from injuries from a bladder mesh. Johnson and Johnson is also currently facing its first mesh lawsuit to go into trial. Let's hope that the the verdict would also go in favor of the plaintiff just as the lawsuit which went into trial in CA. There is added information at http://www.bladdermeshlawsuit.us/symptoms-of-... that could be of help to people concerned and interested.

Thousands of women have filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit after suffering crippling injuries, including chronic pain, infections, organ damage, and scarring, allegedly associated with the use of pelvic mesh in the surgical repair of pelvic organ proplapse and stress urinary incontinence. This is not surprising, given that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has tallied some 3,800 reports of vaginal mesh complications associated with the use of these devices. The transvaginal mesh lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are actively filing lawsuits in several major pelvic mesh litigations, and continue to offer free legal evaluations to the victims of vaginal mesh injuries. If the quality of your life has been diminished because of transvaginal mesh, our vaginal mesh lawyers can help. Please contact Bernstein Liebhard LLP today for answers to all of your questions, and to learn more about filing your own transvaginal mesh lawsuit.

Vaginal and transvaginal mesh has destroyed lives and families all over the world. The women and men that have been victims of these failed attempts to use a medical device without proper test should be held accountable to the full extent of the law.

This is good news. Among the thousands of lawsuits being filed against these medical equipment companies, justice has prevailed on this case. Yes, they won the case but the damage has been done and they suffered the consequences of it already. There are still several women out there that are affected by these vaginal mesh devices. Browse over at http://avaultavaginalmeshlawsuit.com/ for more information about vaginal mesh surgery-related problems.

Vaginal mesh has been prescribed to women for preventing uterine prolapse among other things, but this device has been known to cause severe injury in the form of embedding itself into the vaginal walls that it may require surgery to remove. The worst part is that such side effects were not completely made known to the public to warn them. As a result many women have claimed injury.

As vaginal mesh trials are about to get underway, we can only hope that it will turn out to be in favor of the plaintiffs and may result to another product recall. There are more updates and information at http://lindashealthblog.blog.com/2013/06/08/c... that could be of great help to people interested and concerned.

It's disturbing and frightening to know just how many women out there are victims of this untested procedure. I am probably going to be having surgery for large uterine fibroids that I've had for some years. They weren't giving me any problems but lately, I've been having pressure and urinary incontinence which I believe is a result of pelvic floor dysfunction or even pelvic organ prolapse. Not sure, although it doesn't seem to be severe. My Ob-Gyn said that if I opt for surgery to remove my uterus, I will need abdominal reconstruction. She's young and new in her field and I have this feeling that she will use mesh. I don't want the mesh and will look for a surgeon with years of experience and other options other then using mesh. Otherwise, I'll just deal with my problem as best I can. I've read that the mesh has caused auto-immune disorders in many who have had this procedure done. I already have Hypothyroidism so I don't need any more problems. Shame on the hospitals or whomever, for not investigating or testing this product. How can they look the other way as so many are suffering and whose lives will never be the same again. It's very sad and upsetting. Money seems to rule over anything else in our world.
