- Ob Vaginal Sling Tape Lawsuit | Phillips Law Group
Bladder problems are quite common in women, especially one condition known as female stress urinary incontinence. There are many causes linked to the development of this condition including stress, but the fact remains that this is basically a bladder control problem that also can include extreme pain and discomfort in any woman who suffers from it.
If you or someone you love has also suffered as a result of using the OBTape vaginal sling, you need to act now to pursue your legal rights. Contact a defective products attorney as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation, and youll have the answers you need to properly decide how you should proceed.
The Mentor Corporation was one of the leaders in researching and developing a product designed to help women get control over this issue, and in 2003, they received news that their product, the OBTape vaginal sling, had been approved for sale and distribution in the United States.
The product sold very well in the early going, and its estimated that up to 35,000 women have used it. Its given to the woman surgically, and is implanted near the wall of the urethra to help support nearby muscles and thereby the flow of urine.
Consequences of using the OB Tape vaginal sling
Unfortunately, only a few years had passed before the OBTape vaginal sling had to be removed from the market because of its link to serious side effects. The problem that was discovered with the OBTape vaginal sling was that unlike competing products, it was not woven into a mesh-like substance. This created an impossibility for the flow of oxygen and other nutrients through the frame and into the womans system, thereby leading to the development of these side effects.
The consequences of using the OBTape vaginal sling included internal and on-site bleeding, extreme pain, constant discomfort, the loss of any bladder control they had gained with the use of this product and many other maladies. Even more troubling was the fact that the only way to correct this problem was to have an additional surgical procedure done to remove it from the womans body.
Mentor Corporation Legal Claims
Due to the prevalence of these problems arising in women, lawsuits began to pile up against the Mentor Corporation all over the United States. As of this writing, 22 separate lawsuits have been filed against the company because of this allegedly defective product. The next item on the legal docket is a hearing to determine if these claims should be combined into one action against the Mentor Corporation, which is a common solution sought by a defendant in order to simplify its defense to one case instead of potentially dozens.

I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Sophia H is very helpful.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
