Dr. Greg Vigna comments on the vaginal mesh litigation and medical malpractice cases retained by his law.
“Medical malpractice cases and pharmaceutical injury cases are about the costs of future care. Without significant money damages staring them in the face, mesh manufacturers think they are invulnerable. With harm comes fear.” Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician, and attorney.
Greg Vigna, MD, JD, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, practicing physician, and Certified Life Care Planner comments on the vaginal mesh litigation and medical malpractice cases retained by his law:
“Transvaginal mesh litigation going forward outside the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is in some large respect about the horribly injured women with debilitating injuries caused by the greed of the manufacturers who put them in their condition.
Defense firms for pharmaceutical and medical device companies are anxious to take cases to trial where there is limited downside risk on a particular case because future care costs for the injured person are not substantial.
“Without significant money damages staring them in the face, mesh manufacturers think they are invulnerable. With harm comes fear.” — Dr. Greg Vigna
We understand that manufacturers will pay physician experts to opine on every vaginal mesh case and to give any opinion they are paid for, so we must be prepared to counter those opinions with the truth. Part of that truth is showing the pain experienced by our clients but also the substantial future care costs that they are often saddled with while the manufacturers make their millions.”
Transobturator slings and mini-slings that insert into the obturator internus muscle produce specific neurological pain syndromes that far exceed what a reasonable consumer would anticipate for an elective procedure that is described by the manufacturers as “minimally invasive.” Injury to important nerves by these insidious products produce catastrophic neuropathic pain syndromes.
Dr. Vigna adds, “The Post-MDL litigation is about neurological injuries as these are tragic injury cases with future care costs sometimes exceeding a half-million dollars per decade of life. My firm represents women with pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome.”
