Transvaginal mesh lawsuits are common these days, but what many ad campaigns and infomercials fail to address is how these lawsuits impact the plaintiff. Transvaginal mesh lawsuits are different then other types of cases. They require that the plaintiff share very intimate details of their life with complete strangers. Many times they are embarrassed and scared to share certain information. On other occasions woman share these details with secretaries or paralegals who have very little to offer in the way of legal advice. As a result they read questions off of a piece of paper with very little compassion or understanding for the human element of these types of cases.
Getting to know my client
I want to know you, I want to hear your story, not just read it on a piece of paper and make a decision. I want to hear how this has impacted your life and changed the human element of your life and I want you to feel completely comfortable in sharing that. All of our transvaginal mesh cases are handled by me first. I conduct the intake and asses the various elements of your case. From there we can discuss what the potential value maybe and other related questions you may have. But my first question is almost always, how has this surgery or implant changed you?
I want to learn of this impact so we can present a better case for your compensation. Often times clients in law firms are given a case number and not a face or story even though every client has a story. This human interaction is lost when dealing with highly sensitive cases such as transvaginal mesh and it troubles me.
Sharing facts with an attorney, not a office manager or intake specialist
Intake specialist are charged with the purpose of getting the facts of your case. However they are not attorney and can offer no legal advice. Many times you will share this information, only to find yourself sharing it again with the attorney. This process is unfair in my opinion. What we offer is a different experience. Our process allows you to first speak with an attorney and ask any question you may have. We will go through all the elements of your case including losses, revision surgeries, value of case and other important information. From there we will schedule for the necessary paperwork to be delivered and signed. At which point we will start your case.
Many times doctors can be held liable for malpractice, but these types of cases are rarely pursued. Law firms hyper focus on medical device failures and neglect the fact that doctors can be liable. While a doctor is not always liable, there are times where they would be considered responsible. These types of cases need to be evaluated in more than just one dimension.
If you have been injured as a result of transvaginal mesh implant, consider contacting an attorney for a free consultation. Make sure you address issues such as filing deadlines, qualifications and number of cases they are handling.
