A class-action lawsuit, where the plaintiffs can avoid the high cost of litigation by pooling their resources, can be an option for women who have been injured by vaginal meshes – yet compensation may be more limited. Consult an attorney to see if this is the best solution in your case.
Over time, there have been cases of women who suffered major physical injuries and emotional stress as a result of using a poorly designed and not properly tested vaginal mesh. Complications that cause harm to women are the reason a lot of defective vaginal mesh cases are won by claimers. Manufacturers have the obligation to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the products they create.
Participating in a class-action lawsuit can be an option for women who have been hurt by vaginal meshes. However, this is a special legal process and being a part of it means that you no longer have the right to file a lawsuit on your own for the same case. Also, you should know that the compensation that you might receive can cover your medical expenses, losses to quality of life, pain, and costs of additional surgeries.
Therefore, this is an action that must be carefully considered. You should contact a specialized lawyer to advise you and help you with your case. You can decide together if this kind of action is suitable for you and what is the best compensation you can receive.
