Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Loans Offer Financial Stability

To date, over 50,000 women have filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits against a handful of manufacturers and countless other prospective plaintiffs are thinking of filing complaints to demand compensation for their physical injuries, and pain and suffering.

While a lawsuit can enable the recovery of compensation for medical bills and other expenses, it can often take months or even years before a case resolves. Those who are concerned about their financial stability in the meantime may wish to consider applying for a transvaginal mesh lawsuit loan, which, unlike a traditional bank loan, is risk-free.

Filing a transvaginal mesh lawsuit

Transvaginal mesh products are manufactured by several different companies, including C.R. Bard, Cook Medical, Boston Scientific, Ethicon, and others. The mesh is surgically implanted in a woman’s pelvic region for the purpose of providing additional support to internal structures to relieve symptoms of urinary stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, many women found that instead of relief of their symptoms, they suffered from dire medical consequences.

The FDA has issued warnings of recurrence of original symptoms, mesh erosion, infection, urinary problems, infection, pain, and other problems that can lead to a significantly diminished quality of life. Thousands of women have decided to file lawsuits against these companies because of the severity of their injuries and the high cost of medical expenses. In fact, many women have had to undergo additional surgeries and hospitalization due to complications.  Any woman who received a transvaginal mesh implant and has experienced serious complications from the device could be eligible to file a lawsuit to recover compensation.

Some plaintiffs have already enjoyed the resolution of their cases with substantial settlements. In the first bellwether trial for the Bard Avaulta multidistrict litigation (MDL), the plaintiff was awarded $2 million for her injuries and trauma, including $1.5 million in punitive damages given the allegedly defective nature of the mesh device. It is perhaps due to the substantial nature of the first jury award that the parties involved in the second bellwether trial recently reached a settlement, cancelling the trial shortly before it was set to begin. Those settlement details were not released.

Exploring settlement funding

Even after achieving resolution of their cases; however, the transvaginal mesh plaintiffs may still need to wait awhile before seeing any money. Appeals may still be filed, for example, which will delay payment.

Thousands of other plaintiffs are still waiting for their day in court and they may need to wait many more months before resolving their claims. In the meantime, it can be difficult to stay financially afloat, particularly if injuries from the transvaginal mesh are disabling and limit employment opportunities. Plaintiffs and prospective plaintiffs must deal with growing piles of medical bills, ongoing care expenses, and everyday living expenses such as housing and child care.

For some of these plaintiffs, lawsuit loans may provide the solution. For example, Bard Avaulta settlement funding could be available for the second plaintiff in the MDL as she awaits her check from the defendant. Other plaintiffs who have not yet resolved their cases could benefit from pre settlement funding. Unlike a typical loan or line of credit from a bank or credit union, there is absolutely no risk to the plaintiff with a lawsuit loan. This type of loan is more like a cash advance against future payments. Since it is non-recourse, it doesn’t need to be repaid in the event the plaintiff loses her case. Plus, it can be used for everything from medical bills to legal fees to mortgage payments.
