Medical malpractice is a serious issue in the U.S. According to one study, nearly 200,000 lives are lost every year in this country due to medical errors and omissions.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, turn to a Fort Worth malpractice Lawyer at Zinda Law Group for help.
Anyone seeking any type of health care should have an expectation of the level of treatment he or she receives. Health care providers who fail to satisfy these obligations, and as a result cause harm to their patients, can be subject to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Legal action can be taken against both individuals and groups that provide health services, including doctors, dentists, nurses and entire hospitals. A medical malpractice attorney who is knowledgeable of the law can be the best advocate of anyone who has been harmed by the actions of a medical professional.
There are many forms of medical malpractice, some of which are obvious and thus more easily litigated. Other cases can have long-term consequences and may be difficult to prove legally. Many cases involve the dispensation of the wrong medication or of an incorrect dosage of a certain drug. A particular disease or condition may be incorrectly diagnosed, leading to the worsening of the situation and the need for additional treatment. Alternatively, an improper diagnosis may lead to unnecessary treatments that can in turn cause other health problems. In extreme cases of malpractice, the wrong organs or even the wrong limbs have been surgically removed from patients. No matter the degree of the error, the victims and even their families are entitled to monetary compensation.
Fort Worth Transvaginal Mesh Injury Lawyer
Transvaginal mesh devices are often used to treat weak or damaged vaginal walls that can result from pregnancy, child birth or aging. Transvaginal mesh was approved by the FDA in the 1990’s with little or no testing done beforehand. The manufacturers merely had to show that there was a substantial similarity to other approved devices. The surgical mesh had been used extensively in hernia repairs, but little was known about the long-term safety or effectiveness for vaginal or bladder repairs. Some of the symptoms of failed or eroding transvaginal mesh include vaginal bleeding, vaginal infection, urinary problems, injury to nearby organs, organ perforation or erosion, hardening of the vaginal mesh, and mesh erosion through the vagina.
If you have had a transvaginal mesh device implanted and are experiencing any physical symptoms or psychological complications, contact a transvaginal mesh injury lawyer at Zinda Law Group for a free consultation.
You May Be Eligible For Compensation
Compensation can be sought for many reasons. Medical errors may necessitate additional medical services that can be costly, and even those with health insurance may end up having to cover certain expenses on their own. There are also the issues of lost wages and of the care of family members if the affected person is the breadwinner of the household. Additionally, victims may seek compensation for damages that are not economic in nature, such as the physical pain and the psychological stress that can result from an act of medical malpractice. Family members can seek damages to compensate for the loss of companionship if a loved one dies due to a medical error.
