Many women suffering from stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapsed were told that transvaginal mesh was a safe and effective treatment for their issue. Unfortunately, more than 100,000 women have suffered serious physical injuries and emotional distress resulting from complications from transvaginal mesh surgery. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has declared transvaginal mesh to be a high-risk medical device, it is still in use. Over the past decade, mesh manufacturers have paid out millions of dollars in personal injury claims to women harmed by defective mesh products. The victims of these defective products, however, often experience tremendous financial hardships arising from their medical expenses, time off work, and the cost of litigating their case. High Rise Financial is a legal funding company dedicated to alleviating the financial burdens faced by plaintiffs so that they can focus on recovering and securing the best possible outcome in their case.
Common Complications of Transvaginal Mesh:
Transvaginal mesh is essentially netting used to hold and secure the pelvic organs in place similar to a sling or hammock. Even with the high-risk designation and the large number of reported injuries, the FDA has not ordered a complete recall of the product. Common complications following surgery using transvaginal mesh include mesh erosion, vaginal scarring, organ perforation, nerve damage, and urinary difficulties. In severe cases, additional surgeries may be required to correct the damage caused by the mesh. Since these complications impact the most personal aspects of urinary and sexual function, injured women often suffer tremendous emotional distress in addition to their physical pain.
Benefits of Pre-Settlement Financing:
Settlement funding is a way for plaintiffs to enjoy greater financial security by allowing them to receive cash against their anticipated settlement before their case is finalized. The money is not considered a cash advance or a loan. Funding is a non-recourse transaction. This means that the client does not have to repay the money if they are not successful in their injury claim. There are no restrictions on how the money is used, although most clients use it to pay their rent, car payment, and other monthly expenses.
Funding with High Rise Financial is fast and hassle-free. All it takes is one short phone call and most cases are approved within 24 hours. Once the client provides the funding specialist with the name and contact information of their attorney, High Rise Financial handles the rest. For more information, contact us today. Funding specialists are available 24/7.
