  • Can a plaintiff rely on the 90-day savings provision in TCA 20-1-119 in order to add a previously known potential non-party tort-feasor to an existing lawsuit even when the plaintiff knew the identity of the potential tort-feasor at the time of the filing of the plaintiff’s original complaint but chose not to sue the potential tort-feasor?
  • Did a store owe a duty to a patron who was struck in the store’s parking lot by a vehicle driven by another store patron after store employees had refused to fill the other patron’s medical prescriptions because they believed she was intoxicated and ordered her to leave store?

Transvaginal Mesh and Bladder Slings: Concerns and Legal Remedies - on CD

Presently, there are six different multidistrict litigation consolidations with roughly 40,000 individual transvaginal mesh cases pending across the United States. Last year, Endo Pharmaceutical, Inc. paid out a $54.5 million dollar settlement to compensate victims injured by a mesh implant.

Transvaginal mesh is used to repair common pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. It is designed to shore up organs such as the bladder and uterus that have dropped due to age, obesity, or childbirth.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, reported complications from the transvaginal placement of the mesh include erosion of the mesh into the vaginal tissue, organ perforation, pain, infection, painful intercourse, and urinary and fecal incontinence. Often women require surgery to remove the mesh, and in some cases, this can require multiple procedures.

With the number of transvaginal mesh and bladder sling cases growing, it's more important than ever for you to get up to date on the latest concerns, court cases, and legal remedies so you can best serve your clients. Learn more by participating in this timely webinar.
