Transvaginal Mesh: Finding a Qualified Law Firm to Represent You

Published on August 3, 2015 by

In our previous posts, we explained how medical device manufacturers can be held accountable for the damage caused by their product and the differences between a class action suit and a mass tort. So you are ready to move forward and find the perfect attorney to help you fight for your rights, but just how do you go about doing that?

There are times when an ambitious person can very well represent himself or herself in the legal system. For instance, if you’re writing up a simple will, you could just use a template from to write the will. If you get into a minor fender-bender that leads to no major injuries, you could handle the insurance company negotiations on your own.

However, when it comes to cases involving serious injuries, like organ damage or permanent pain in the vagina, you really want to find a qualified attorney to represent your interests. Be choosy about which law firm you select. Given the rash of legal actions that have commenced against manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson, you will probably see a lot of advertising over the next several months regarding transvaginal mesh related claims.

  • How can you vet potential firms?
  • How can you know whether you might have a claim?
  • How can you work well with the law firm you choose to obtain fair results and also reclaim your dignity and protect your health and your family?

Absent context, it’s difficult to know whether you have a case. You could be underestimating your need for help. The costs of vaginal surgeries and therapies could add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, for instance. Or you might be overestimating your case. For instance, perhaps your sexual problems or incontinence could be traced to endocrine problems. That’s why context is essential. Speak with an attorney if there’s any ambiguity; there’s no harm in at least calling.

In our next post we will discuss strategies that will help you find the right attorney for your claim.
