Transvaginal Mesh Cases in Mississippi


Coxwell & Associates Surgical Mesh

The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates are actively working on transvaginal mesh cases throughout Mississippi. They have strategic alliances with other attorneys who are referring them cases to handle for women who have been harmed by these products. Coxwell & Associates are still evaluating and accepting Transvaginal Mesh cases and are filing law suits across the U.S.

Transvaginal Mesh is a mesh product that was inserted into women's bodies through the vaginal opening. The products were used for Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence. Pelvic Organ Prolapse occurs when the tissues in the pelvic region become too weak or stressed to hold the organs in place. Stress Urinary Incontinence is a leakage of urine during activity or simple tasks of daily life.

Back around July 2011 the Food and Drug Administration sent out warnings to doctors and the public that the mesh products may cause serious complications and injuries. These complications included erosion, vaginal scarring, and perforation of organs, increased pain, swelling, and discomfort during sexual intercourse. The major manufacturers of the mesh products are C.R. Bard, Inc., American Scientific Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., and Ethicon, Inc. Each of these companies has had numerous civil actions filed against it and the cases are pending in Multidistrict Litigation. In 2012 Ethicon removed two of its transvaginal mesh products from the market.

One of the first cases to go to trial took place in California. There have been other trials across the country but the mesh cases are just beginning to work their way through the legal system. There is currently thousands of transvaginal mesh cases filed throughout the United States. At the present time a jury is deliberating in Atlantic City, N.J., in the cases of Linda Gross v. Johnson & Johnson. The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates have been following the case for the past several weeks. The jury has been deliberating for 4-5 days and has still not reached a verdict. Butler Snow, a prominent Jackson, MS, law firm with offices in Ridgeland, MS, is helping to defend Johnson & Johnson. This is a case that is being watched by attorneys all over the country.

The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates will continue reviewing, evaluating, and filing cases throughout Mississippi for women who have been harmed by the insertion of transvaginal mesh until the Statute of Limitations runs. The Statute of Limitations is a law which provides that you must file a lawsuit within a certain period of time after you are injuried or you forever lose your right to file a lawsuit. Over the course of our careers we have witnesses people who were injured fail to file their case on time and therefore lose all their rights.
