Frequently Asked Questions about Male Mesh Sling Recalls

about Male Mesh SlingThe United States Food and Drug Administration has reported that two types of male mesh sling have been recalled due to safety concerns.

What models have been recalled?

The two types of mesh sling that have been recalled are:

  • Virtue© Sling, which is manufactured by Coloplast
  • AMS Advance© Male sling System, manufactured by American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific

Those who have received one of these types of mesh sling should consult their physicians immediately.

How do I know if I received one of the recalled devices?

Your physician should have been alerted of the recall. However, your physician should also be able to consult your medical records to see what type of mesh sling you received.

How long does it take to finalize a claim against a medical device manufacturer?

There are many different factors that impact the length of a medical device injury claim. For example, the number of patients injured by the device, whether the claim must go to trial, and the complexity of the claims all impact the length of the case. Some cases may be resolved in a few months, whereas others may take years. With an attorney on your side, your claim will be resolved as quickly as possible.

What types of evidence are considered in a medical device injury claim?

There are many different types of evidence that may be submitted in a medical device injury claim. These include:

  • Medical records
  • Medical bills
  • FDA records
  • Internal records from the medical device manufacturer
  • Emails
  • Phone records
  • Letters
  • Deposition testimony
  • Photographs
  • Video footage
  • Insurance records
  • Product inserts

Depending on the facts of the claim, other types of evidence may also be submitted and considered.

How much compensation am I entitled to?

Every medical device injury claim is unique. The nature of the injuries, the patient’s age and general health, and the conduct of the medical device manufacturer all impact the value of an injury claim. For example, a medical device manufacturer that concealed the dangerous nature of a product would likely face a much larger lawsuit than one that immediately recalled a product upon learning of its dangerous qualities. Some claimants may be entitled to a few thousand dollars, whereas others may be entitled to millions.

How can I help my attorney throughout my claim?

Many injured victims are unaware of the important role they play throughout their claims. Attorneys cannot handle a claim on behalf of a client without a little help from the client. For example, attorneys need to know the impact the faulty medical device had on a client and the client’s family—which is not something an attorney can glean from a law book. Therefore, you should stay in touch with your attorney and answer all emails, phone calls, letters, and other communications in a timely manner. Make sure you provide all information that is requested by your attorney as well.

Will I have to go to court and testify?

It is not likely that you will have to go to court at all. Many injury cases, including those that involve medical device claims, settle long before a trial is scheduled. However, if your claim must go to trial, your medical device injury attorney will meet with you beforehand to ensure you are thoroughly prepared.
