Beware of Transvaginal Mesh Compensation Scams
Transvaginal mesh devices have been linked to serious complications, including pain during sex, bleeding and displacement.
Currently, there are thousands of lawsuits pending across the country against manufacturers, including Endo International Plc, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson, and Cook Medical Systems over injuries associated with transvaginal mesh products.
Alarmingly, some people are attempting to take advantage of victims through fraud. According to WGHP-TV, one woman, who is seeking legal action over an implant, has been bombarded with calls after she sought representation for her injuries.
The woman was allegedly offered compensation for her case if she dropped her current attorney—albeit, she would first have to pay an upfront fee. This act, the station warned, is a sign of fraud.
“Somehow or another they get my number,” the woman said, according to WGHP. “Offers like ‘if you would drop your lawyer we would send you a check in 3 days for $250,000’. I said ‘really?’”
You should never make payments to an entity promising you services for a down payment if you are involved in a case like this.
Our law firm offers free consultations. Additionally, in most personal injury cases, attorneys offer contingency fees, meaning clients only pay fees at the conclusion of the case if their lawyer succeeds in handling it.
