Transvaginal Mesh Injuries
The knowledgeable defective medical device attorneys at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent people who have been injured by a broad range of harmful products.

The Food and Drug Administration has published warnings about the devices, and several lawsuits have been filed by women injured by the implants. Our Cape Cod transvaginal mesh lawyers combine more than 150 years of legal experience to help people injured by harmful products seek the full compensation that they are entitled to receive under the law. We take the time to understand each client’s unique individual circumstances, and we work tirelessly to pursue the full remedies that they deserve.
Transvaginal mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, a painful condition in which a woman’s organs begin to shift into the vagina. The mesh provides extra support to weakened tissue. In some cases, however, the treatment has also come with its own complications. These include reports of pain and bleeding related to the mesh eroding or moving into other parts of the body. Complications often require additional treatment and surgery.Seek Compensation for Injuries Caused by Transvaginal Mesh
When a person is injured by a transvaginal mesh implant or another defective medical device, they may have a case against the device manufacturer, as well as the companies that market and sell the device. The injured person in some situations may also have a medical malpractice case against the doctor who recommended the device and performed the procedure.
State law generally makes money damages available to cover medical bills and missed wages due to time away from work, along with compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress. In certain cases, the spouse or family of an injured person can also obtain “loss of consortium” damages with the assistance of a transvaginal mesh attorney on Cape Cod. This legal remedy is designed to compensate a family for the loss of their family member’s love, companionship, and support. In the tragic event that a person dies as a result of complications related to a defective medical device, their family has the right to sue for wrongful death.Proving the Liability of a Manufacturer or Another Entity
The law in many ways treats medical device manufacturers like companies that make just about any other product that you can find on a store shelf or order online. The state imposes an implied warranty of merchantability on virtually any commercial product, whether it is a toaster or a transvaginal mesh implant. The warranty makes the product maker liable for any injuries that occur if the product malfunctions within a certain period of time.
To prove liability under the warranty, the injured person needs to show that they were using the device or product in a reasonably foreseeable way at the time of the incident that caused the injury. For medical devices, this means showing that the device had been marketed as a solution for the condition that it was used to treat. The injured person also needs to point to a specific defect in the device and show that the defect caused or contributed to their injury.Retain a Transvaginal Mesh Lawyer on Cape Cod to Protect Your Rights
