Transvaginal/Pelvic Mesh Lawsuit

Transvaginal Mesh

Over 100,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in what has become one of the largest mass torts in history. Billions of dollars in transvaginal mesh settlement awards have already been paid by mesh manufacturers, and settlements continue to be awarded. Plaintiffs include women who were forced to undergo revision surgery to address complications with transvaginal mesh. Some women who have sued have been awarded multi-million-dollar transvaginal mesh lawsuit settlements.

Injuries that women can sue for include:

  • Dyspareunia (difficult or painful sexual intercourse)
  • Urinary problems
  • Multiple occurrences of pelvic organ prolapse
