News - Foley & Small Filing Claims for Defective Vaginal Slings

Back to News

Foley & Small has filed claims on behalf of more than two dozen women who have been tragically injured and their lives often greatly affected by implanted vaginal slings.  The implants were intended to relieve symptoms involving urinary incontinence, which develops in some women after childbirth or later hysterectomies.  Unfortunately, these implants often caused terrible symptoms including pain, continuing incontinence, impediments to movement and pain and difficulties engaging in sexual relations.  Vaginal slings have been developed and sold by four major companies, including Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, C.  R.  Bard and American Medical Systems.  A Multi-District Litigation, proceeding has been established in the federal district court in West Virginia to handle these claims.
