TransVaginal mesh Lawsuits: Statute of Limitations Medical Implant Claims


A common question asked by our clients to our attorneys deals with the length of time they have to file a lawsuit form their injuries. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims and defective product claims vary based on the jurisdiction where the injury took place, the age of the plaintiff and the specific cause of the injury.

How long do I have to file my case for Transvaginal Mesh Implant Injuries?

Statute of Limitations - Deadline - Transvaginal Mesh LitigationDepending on the state or jurisdiction in which you reside the time limitations can be different. If you are filing a accidental injury cause of action will generally have 2 years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit in the state of California. Product liability lawsuits must also be filed within 2 years from the date of injury. Below are a few examples of how the statute of limitations work: Example #1: Client undergoes a Vaginal Mesh Procedure in 2001. In 2011 she experiences serious medical complications from the vaginal mesh implant procedure preformed back in 2001. This allows them 2 years from 2011 to file a lawsuit for their injuries. Even though they underwent the procedure in 2001 the statute won’t begin to run until they have knowledge of the injury. Example #2: Client undergoes a procedure for a vaginal sling mesh implant in 2009. Shortly after she begin to experience some severe side effects from the vaginal mesh procedure. Before she is able to seek legal representation she suffers a serious injury unrelated to the Vaginal mesh implant. As a result of the injury she has suffered she is unable to seek leis unable to file a clam or seek legal assistance for her injuries until 2011. In such cases the statute will be “tolled”. A statute can be tolled or stopped when there is a serious medical impairment. In this case the statute can likely be tolled due to the clients medical or health issues. Other examples where courts have routinely permitted the a tolling of a statute of limitations are as follows
  • Physical and mental incapacitation of the plaintiff
  • Deceit and fraud on the part of the defendant so that the plaintiff would fail to file a claim in time
  • The injury to the individual did not manifest itself until after the statute to file the claim has run its course
While these are just examples, they help to better understand that statute issue with regards to your claim. If you are thinking of filing a product liability case for injuries sustained from taking a prescription drug, contact our offices free consultation.
