Michigan pelvic mesh lawsuit attorneys represent patients who have suffered complications or problems from the medical device. In 2008, the FDA released a warning to warn women that the transvaginal placement of a surgical mesh put woman at a greater risk for injuries than other surgical options.
Some of the most common complications a woman may experience if the pelvic mesh is defective include:
- Mesh Erosion
- Organ Perforation
- Urinary Incontinence

After a woman undergoes a Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) repair surgery using a vaginal mesh, she may experience such problems. Patients who suffer serious injuries or harm due to the fact that the device was defective do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
