Did you undergo revision surgery to correct problems caused by transvaginal mesh, pelvic mesh, a bladder sling or vaginal sling?
Over 100,000 vaginal 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.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Continue to Be Filed
Thousands of vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed by women who have had a transvaginal mesh implant, vaginal sling, bladder sling, vaginal mesh or pelvic mesh surgically implanted to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. After suffering serious complications, many women had to undergo a second surgery to repair the problems caused by the very medical devices that were supposed to help them.
In fact, many transvaginal mesh attorneys are now claiming there is no evidence that transvaginal insertion of a vaginal sling has any benefit for women when its primary use is treating pelvic organ prolapse.
Lawsuits accuse mesh manufacturers of a number of allegations, including:
- Intentionally misleading the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, physicians, patients and the public about the true safety and effectiveness of vaginal mesh products. And failing to warn about potential complications and injuries.
- Failing to properly test transvaginal mesh.
- Failing to research the risks of transvaginal mesh.
- Failing to create safe and effective transvaginal mesh removal procedures.
Transvaginal mesh attorneys are actively filing lawsuits in an attempt to get women compensated for surgeries to remove the mesh or sling, time away from work, mental strife, and pain and suffering.

Transvaginal Mesh Settlement Awards Continue
Leading manufacturers of vaginal mesh and bladder slings such as Bard, AMS, Ethicon, Boston Scientific, UGYTEX, Coviden, and others have paid billions of dollars in settlement awards to plaintiffs.
Pelvic mesh settlements are hard to predict, but individual plaintiff awards could result in thousands of dollars, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars, in compensation to help pay for medical expenses, missed work, pain and suffering, and more.
Spouses of those afflicted with defective vaginal mesh or bladder slings may be able to sue for “loss of consortium,” which roughly translates into the loss of intimacy with their spouse due to the side effects of transvaginal mesh.
Examples of recent transvaginal mesh settlement awards include:
- In March 2018, an Indiana jury awarded $35 million to a couple who alleged an Ethicon mesh implant caused the wife to suffer severe pelvic pain.
- In December 2015, an Indiana plaintiff was awarded $12.5 million for complications caused by Johnson & Johnson’s Prolift implant. She alleged the device forced her to undergo multiple revision surgeries, and that she could no longer have sex due to ongoing health problems.
- In September 2014, a West Virginia plaintiff was awarded $3.27 million for severe pelvic pain caused by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Gynecare TVT Obturator, or TVT-O, transvaginal mesh device.
