SCRANTON, Pa., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Women with problem transvaginal mesh surgery must hurry to file their claims, according to a major public information website for mesh victims, or risk not participating in current billion-dollar court settlements. The advisory was issued today by www.meshadvice.com, a website operated by northeastern Pennsylvania national media group MAJORMEDIA. Early September will likely be the latest that victims can make claim, it was noted.
"The complications from mesh surgery have literally made many women's daily life a nightmare," stated a firm official, "and both the court system and the manufacturers have recognized the need for compensation."
Many women are not aware of the limited time period due to limited national advertising asking for victims by national law firms. Many of the attorneys involved in the litigation have identified large numbers of qualifying victims and believe there are only limited additional victims. For this reason, most national advertising for victims has been discontinued.
Money is typically paid to women who have had transvaginal mesh implants, and the implants have been recommended by the woman's doctor for repair, removal, or replacement due to failure or complications. Six-figure settlements are commonplace.
