There are many reasons to have the law on your side, not the least of which is to help level the playing field when someone does you wrong. The problem is that there are so many laws on the books that unless we hire an attorney to help sort them all out we may be under the impression that we have no recourse when someone puts the screws to us. We have come to depend on the medical profession to do the right thing, however, the moment they became more concerned about making the big bucks at our expense was the moment that we decided to hire a lawyer.
The moment you allow a doctor to put his/her hands on you, it is saying to them that you trust them and you are expecting them to return the courtesy of being honest with their service. It is an unfortunate turn of events when Lawyers have to get involved “after the fact” simply because someone did not do what they were supposed to do. There are quite a few women today who are reporting considerable complications after being exposed to a procedure involving Transvaginal Mesh. The procedure was intended to treat (pop) pelvic organ prolapse but has had adverse reactions such as mesh erosion and major bouts of pain. Because of these and other complications, a legal response is presently underway.
It was not until very recently that I ever heard of this procedure and what I know now makes this a prime case for anyone who has ever been exposed to pop. It is unfortunate that we have so many people who would prefer to leave sleeping dogs lie rather than seek out legal assistance for themselves. The fact remains that when it comes to legal issues many people are not even aware of what their legal rights are. This lack of knowledge will only allow big medical business to continue to do as they please, rather than pay for their mistakes. While I am not suggesting we start a war against the medical profession, I do believe that we should be exploring our legal options and (for those affected) join the ranks of anyone being represented in the Travsvaginal Mesh lawsuits.
