Spousal claims are recognized by law and are considered loss of consortium claims. These claims address the loss of intimate contact with your significant other. Complications from a transvaginal mesh implant can prevent any type of physical contact between spouses. In such cases the courts permit an independent claim by the spouse for these types of injuries. These claims cover more than just a physical component, but address a companionship aspect. Mesh implants can have serious complications, which can cause unwanted isolation and distress. If you have been injured read the following article to learn more about your rights.
How can my Husband Recover for a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit
A common question is how can my husband recover? Vaginal mesh implants are an exclusively female surgery, so it would seem uncommon for a male to recover for injuries. However, in these cases it is not recovery for any physical injuries, but for loss of emotional companionship or intimacy. In cases where multiple revision or takedown surgeries have taken place this is more common. When the plaintiff undergoes such surgeries she is generally given bed rest for a sustained period of time. Additionally, other limitations can be requested by the treating surgeon, including limited physical movement or exercise of any kind.
If you are in a relationship this can cause the other party to feel isolated and neglected. In certain cases this can place undue strain on the relationship. However, courts will allow for recovery for these types of injuries. While each case is different, the law does recognize recovery for pain and suffering caused by mesh implants.
