Nebraska Woman Seeks $1 Million Vaginal Mesh Settlement

A Nebraska woman filed a new lawsuit against vaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard on the 9th of November, 2012. The lawsuit, which was filed with the assistance of a vaginal mesh lawyer, is currently proceeding in the United States’ District Court for the District of Nebraska. Other women across the country are seeking vaginal mesh lawsuit settlements, and the plaintiff claims that after she was implanted with the vagina mesh product made by the defendant she suffered from serious injuries. This lawsuit is similar to a number of others that have been filed nationwide by other women who have become the victim of complications related to their vaginal mesh devices.

Details of case outlined

On November 30, 2009, the plaintiff was implanted with mesh products made by defendant C.R. Bard, including the device known as the Transobturator Mid-Urethral Sling. The surgery was performed at the Memorial Community Hospital which is in Blair, Nebraska. The plaintiff was undergoing her vaginal mesh surgery in order to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary invontinence that she was suffering from. These conditions can result from a woman’s pelvic organs being weakened or stretched. This happens with menopause, surgery, and childbirth.

The plaintiff claims that shortly after she was implanted with the defendant’s vaginal mesh device, she has suffered a number of serious vaginal mesh side effects, including severe and incapacitating pain in her pelvic region. She also claims to have suffered from recurring stress urinary incontinence, pain during sexual intercourse, and other problems resulting from her vaginal mesh implant. Many patients have experienced similar problems resulting from transvaginal mesh devices and hundreds of women have filed suit nationwide against various vaginal mesh manufacturers.

FDA warning of side effects

The Food and Drug Administration issued a notice on July 13, 2011, detailing the fact that complications related to the use of vaginal mesh devices are “not rare”. Since then, dozens of patients have chosen to take legal action.
