Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class Action Articles, Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawsuit, Physiomesh Lawyer

Physiomesh Hernia Mesh lawyers are filing Hernia Mesh lawsuits for your failed Physiomesh used to repair your hernia. Ethicon voluntarily withdrew the Physiomesh from the  market in May of 2016  after independent studies revealed high rates of recurrence and failure from the Physiomesh.

What Is The Physiomesh?

The Physiomesh is a hernia repair mesh  made from polypropylene just like the vaginal mesh products. The FDA originally approved Ethicon’s Physiomesh on April 9, 2010. Ethicon used the FDA 510(k) approval program for the Physiomesh. This allowed them to get it on the market fast.

Problems With The Physiomesh

Numerous studies have shown that the Physiomesh has  lower incorporation strengths than the other hernia mesh products.  Physiomesh coating  issues were observed over time to lead to scar plate formation, but little to no abdominal wall adherence.

Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer.  The talc particles moves  through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked  Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles.  Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body.

Was There Sufficient Warning For Boston Transvaginal Mesh Victims?

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Medical Device Lawsuits, Transvaginal mesh

Did The Manufacturers Of The Transvaginal Mesh And Bladder Sling Give Sufficient Warning?

Boston Vaginal Mesh Lawyers say no in the thousands of transvaginal mesh and bladder sling claims that have been filed in the Pelvic Mesh Repair Lawsuits MDL'Ls.

According to transvaginal mesh lawyers accross the country who are filing vaginal mesh and bladder sling lawsuits the warning was insufficient. For a warning to be sufficient, a transvaginal mesh warning  should appropriately signal danger while simultaneously providing the information in order to use the product appropriately.  A  pharmaceutical or medical device  manufacturer doesn’t necessarily have to discuss matters that are basic medical knowledge.  They are not in a position to control the individual practices  of doctors in every single medical community. 

 Will The Device  Warnings The Transvaginal meshmanufacturers provided  to the doctor relieve them of their duty to warn the patient.

What are some ways that warnings can become inadequate?  Some variables that courts will consider include:  If they are overly broad or too generic, contradictory statements made in the inserts, actions by the sales representatives, and presenting the warning in a way that makes it unlikely to be read.  Remember, every case is different.  In some cases, a doctor might not even bother to read the warnings.  In other cases, the possibility of an adverse reaction is too small to even impact the doctor’s decision.  There have even been cases where a doctor has stated that even if he were given new information, he would have still followed through with his initial decision.

What other possible legal theories being explored?  If a company supplies product related information to the public that amounts to an express warranty, they can be held liable for breach of warranty if the plaintiff can successfully prove that the information was false.

We will be watching the pelvic mesh repair proceedings and waiting to see how they play out.

Women With Dow Corning Breast Implants Are Still Waiting AS Vaginal Mesh Bellwether Trials Begin

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class MDL Class Action News

The Dow Corning Breast Implant Class Action was the largest class action in history effecting women until the vaginal mesh. Now women are watching the Bellwether trials hoping for justice as women with Dow Corning Breast Implants are still waiting.

Claimants in Dow Corning Breast Implant Lawsuit Waiting

As one woman says:

We have all been waiting for our disbursement from the Court that was awarded us because of our problems with the Dow Corning Breast Implant Lawsuit. This award was made over 20 years ago. Please feel free to use this letter in your pursuit of your share of the proceeds from this lawsuit. I am interested in getting this settled and getting paid, and I know you are, also.

Will women destroyed by the vaginal mesh have the same problems?

 

March 4, 2013

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

This letter is to all claimants under the Dow Corning Breast Implant Suit.

We have been told that an oral argument is being made before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit as to whether or not Dow Corning can claim a credit for interest earned on the Initial Payment that was made before the Effective Date of the Plan. It was successfully argued by the CAC that the bankruptcy settlement provided that the claimants, not Dow Corning, would get the benefit of the interest earned on the Initial Payment.

The hearing went well and the Court took the Issue under advisement. We expect a ruling to come sometime in 2013. So far there are not any updates on this ruling.

The Courts need to realize that Dow has been making appeals on this case for too many years. Dow Corning has let it be known that there is plenty of money in its Settlement Fund to pay the current claimants and those who may claim in the future, but they continually object to actually making these payments, hoping to be able to keep any and all interest due on these payments. It has been argued that the claimants are to get the interest and this ruling is what the claimants are waiting on SO THAT THEY CAN FINALLY GET PAID.

As one of the claimants, I feel that after almost 20 years of trying to collect from Dow Corning, I should be the one to benefit from the additional interest earned by the Settlement Fund, not Dow Corning or their attorneys. The accrued interest aside, I want to be paid now because of the financial burden imposed on myself and the thousands of other claimants over the years. Personally, I am in danger of losing my home and car. It is hard for me to pay for medicine and food. Even though food stamps are available, many states are reducing the amounts paid out. My attorney surely deserves his reward after all the years of providing me with support and advice.

These premium payments could be a welcome injection into the critical financial situation in which most of the country finds itself. These women claimants have had to put off purchases that are normally made each year, such as insurance, new clothes, new vehicles to replace not-so-reliable old ones, and other items that many persons take for granted.

Women have really been taken advantage of in so many ways – almost comparable to being raped. They have suffered mentally, financially and physically. Time moves very slowly when you think you have been forgotten and the Courtroom seem to go on and on. I will be 78 years old in September of 2011. I have waited 20 years for the premium payments since I first applied as a claimant. I doubt I can wait another 20 years.

How long can Dow Corning use the Courts to avoid paying these poor women?

As we look at the past for women whose lives were destroyed by Dow Corning Breast Implants we can only wonder what the future holds for 1000's of vaginal mesh victims. Our vaginal mesh lawyers are here to help you. Our Breast Implant lawyers are here to help you. We are lawyers helping woman.
