Sling Mesh Lawsuit Lawyers in Minnesota for Women Suffering Erosion and Pain

Update to post below: Our vaginal mesh lawsuits have settled and we are no longer able to take these cases. If you have any questions regarding the settlement, please call 1-888-377-8900 (toll free) to talk to an attorney.

You had a vaginal sling or bladder sling procedure to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Your surgeon used a transvaginal mesh product, and now you suffer debilitating pain and other complications that have changed your life. You have legal rights, and the manufacturer of the sling mesh needs to be held accountable.

Just days ago, a jury awarded one vaginal mesh sling patient $7.76 million in punitive damages. This was in addition to $3.35 million in compensatory damages (medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, etc.). The mesh product used was Prolift, manufactured by Ethicon, a unit of Johnson & Johnson.

The jury found that Ethicon (J&J) fraudulently misrepresented the product’s risks to doctors and in the Prolift mesh instructions.  This case, just one of several filed against J&J and other manufacturers, is being used as a bellwether case to determine how much these cases are worth. Our law firm has filed lawsuits for compensation on behalf of many women, although not the one in the bellwether case. You can contact them for a FREE CONSULTATION HERE.

You have the right to compensation for pain and medical expenses if your injuries are caused by a sling mesh product manufactured by one of the following:

  • Ethicon, a unit of Johnson & Johnson – Prolene Mesh/Prolene Soft Mesh, Gynemesh, Gynemesh PS, TVT, TVT-Obturator, TVT-SECUR, TVT Exact, TVT Abbrevo, Prolift, Prolift + M, and Prosima (read about possible Prolift mesh lawsuit settlements after a $7 million verdict);
  • American Medical Systems (AMS) – Elevate, Apogee, Perigee, Spare, Monarch, Mini Arc (read more about AMS mesh lawsuits and David’s leadership roll in those cases);
  • C.R. Bard – Avaulta; and
  • Boston Scientific – Advantage, Advantage Fit, Lynx, Obtryx, Prefyx and Solyx.
