AUGUST 2015 - A Midlothian, Texas grandmother took her Ford Expedition to Wal-Mart for a routine oil change. Roberta Slayton's car had 173,000 miles on the odometer and was in good, solid condition. A Wal-Mart employee crashed her SUV into a wall. The employee stated that the SUV's throttle stuck, and that he would have injured his colleague if he hadn't steered toward the wall. The Wal-Mart insurance representatives offered a $3,200 settlement, which does not cover the cost of replacing Ms. Slayton's vehicle. Initially, she was told that it would take 2-3 weeks for Wal-Mart to investigate to determine liability for the accident. She was advised to contact her insurance company to have her totaled SUV towed from the scene of the accident at her own cost. Eventually, after local news coverage of the story, Wal-Mart offered to pay for a rental vehicle to Ms. Slayton during their investigation. Ms. Slayton relied on her vehicle to make deliveries for her floral business, Flowers by Roberta. 
 
Legal Commentary
The experienced attorneys at Fears Nachawati represent victims of negligence to ensure that our clients are compensated property for the cost of repairs, lost wages from time missed from work due to an accident, and other expenses related to the incident. This case is a prime example of how important it is to consult with an attorney and to pursue a civil suit when a victim is injured as the result of another responsible party. Although safety precautions were present at the time of this accident, the company responsible for this incident did not offer an equitable initial settlement to the victim. Filing a civil claim in a scenario like this serves as a means for compensation for the pain and suffering the victim experienced. Questions regarding potential civil claims can be directed to the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by calling our office at +1.866.705.7584.

Why was My Transvaginal Mesh Defective?

AUGUST 2015 - Women who received bladder sling and pelvic support products in surgeries have reported severe complications for many years. Recently, a major vaginal mesh manufacturer announced a group settlement upwards of $200 million for the victims of its transvaginal mesh products. There were many root causes of the surgical complications that these women suffered.

Many complications occurred when the mesh eroded through the vaginal tissues and caused infections and incontinence. Some women experienced issues from the mesh shifting. Although the mesh was designed to be a long-term solution intended to stabilize the pelvic organs, the resulting defects caused the mesh to quickly degrade, erode, and disintegrate inside the victims' bodies. The severe pain and internal damage caused by TVM surgeries could also be related to improper sterilization and defective materials used to construct the mesh. Even worse, the victims are suffering continual pain and permanent injuries from the resulting damage caused by the surgical removal of transvaginal mesh products.

Legal Commentary
Our firm represents the victims of transvaginal mesh surgery side effects and injuries. If you or a loved one has experienced any complications caused by transvaginal mesh surgery, you should contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Further questions can be directed to the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by emailing the lead MESH lawyer, Majed Nachawati at mn@fnlawfirm.com, or by calling our office at +1.877.222.3284.
