Determining The Value Of Your Personal Injury Claim
Not all personal injury claims are the same, even if the type of accident and damages are similar. One of the most important aspects of a personal injury claim is accurately and effectively determining the fair and full dollar amount of your claim. This should only be done by an experienced personal injury attorney. It will not be done by the liable parties insurance carrier. They may approach you after the accident and offer you a quick and easy lump sum settlement which only benefits them and not you.
Several factors need to be thoroughly analyzed in order to properly establish what your claim is worth. These factors are: current lost wages, future lost wages, vehicle repair costs, current and future medical, therapy and rehabilitation costs as well as pain and suffering. Also, the full extent of your injuries may not present themselves until after many weeks, and in some cases months, following the accident. One of the most important things you should do after the accident is get appropriate medical care. Failure to do so, even if you feel ok, can impact your ability to receive benefits later on as your case progresses. As your attorney I assure that I will do everything necessary to establish the full dollar value of your claim and do everything in my power to get those benefits for you and your family.

Transvaginal Mesh Injury Claims
A transvaginal mesh is a net-like implant used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. POP occurs when a pelvic organ, such as the bladder, shifts from its location in the lower belly and moves against the wall of the vagina. This often arises from the weakening of pelvic muscles after childbirth or surgery.
Some women who have underwent transvaginal mesh surgery have suffered from intense pain, bleeding, and erosion resulting from the mesh moving to a new location. Additional symptoms include the following:
1. Vaginal infection
2. Urinary problems
3. Reoccurrence of POP and SUI
4. Multiple revision surgeries
If you are currently experiencing any of the above symptoms following a transvaginal mesh implant, immediately seek medical attention. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about the transvaginal mesh device since 2008. The FDA has reclassified the device as high-risk.
As a result of suffering from transvaginal mesh complications, women have opted to have revision surgeries to remove the device. Unfortunately, revision surgery complications have caused further damage as well. For example, after undergoing revision surgery, several thousands of women have suffered from the following complications:
1. Pain during intercourse
2. Damage to the bladder, bowel, urethra, and nearby organs
3. Severe pain in the pelvis
4. Heavy vaginal discharge and bleeding

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Women across the U.S. have filed thousands of lawsuits against transvaginal mesh patch manufacturers. Plaintiffs allege that the device was negligently designed and implanted within the uterus. Civil complaints also allege the manufacturers, such as Ethicon, Inc., failed to adequately warn women about the risks associated with using the transvaginal mesh device.
Several women have suffered from severe internal injury and are seeking compensation for damages. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning in 2011 informing consumers of defect issues associated with the transvaginal mesh patch (commonly referred to as the bladder sling). The FDA has warned women that the use of this device could cause serious health complications.
