Every time Daytona Beach attorneys think they have seen the last of dangerous products hitting the market, another one comes along for something most people didn't know existed. scott tucker More than 300 women in 36 states are suing a company that made a mesh product doctors used to relieve their Pelvic Organ Prolapse Apparently it is something that happens to women when they age, especially if they have had children Basically their bladder drops ps It is estimated that 40 percent of women in America suffer from the condition and Daytona Beach attorneys wonder how many of those women even know they have it Many women may just think it is part of the pain of getting older and don't know it's something that can be fixed Unfortunately a large number of women found out it could be fixed, but what they got instead was even worse pain The mesh product started coming apart inside them It turns out the product didn't even get full Food and Drug Administration inspection It was approved in a new abbreviated process It was supposed to be similar to a product the same manufacturer was already selling Now the women are hoping the FDA bans it altogether The case seems like a clear-cut case on negligence, but Daytona Beach attorneys know that in Florida cases of product liability are never easy The Florida Legislature has passed laws to protect companies from what legislators felt were frivolous lawsuits and were driving up the cost of doing business in the state But somekeyword believe they have eroded consumer protections provided by the courts So, while among the women who have sued are several from Florida, their chances of getting remediation will be better in federal court The manufacturer has several defenses under Florida law, and blaming the doctors could be at the top of the list The mesh product maker also could claim ignorance - saying the product worked fine when it was distributed for use The mesh product maker scott tucker also can point out it used reasonable care in its design and manufacturing, backed up by the abbreviated FDA approval If the women are successful, it could take a product off the market that is causing more harm than it was supposed to resolve It also could help consumer protection proponents push for more strict FDA approval standards Product liability is one of several practice areas of Daytona Beach attorneys somekeyword The firm also handles personal injury and wrongful death cases scott tucker
