/EINPresswire.com/ The Vaginal Mesh Helpline has launched a Midwest outreach campaign to locate all women in the Midwest and help them file their vaginal mesh lawsuit. "This is a major undertaking for the helpline" Says the helpline representatives, " Our first Midwest launch will reach Chicago,Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus,Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and St. Louis." The second round will be aimed at Toledo, Ohio; St. Paul, Minnesota; Lincoln, Nebraska; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Madison, Wisconsin; Des Moines, Iowa; Akron, Ohio; Aurora, Illinois; Springfield, Missouri; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. "Now that the Bellwether vaginal mesh lawsuit trials have a scheduled date, it is imperative that all women have a vaginal mesh lawyer file
their vaginal mesh lawsuits. "We must locate all women in the Mid west suffering from a vaginal mesh and get them to a vaginal mesh lawyer and a vaginal mesh doctor.
The Vaginal mesh helpline, known as the pink site, has been helping women nationwide.
" Women see lawyer ads on T.V and they have questions".Says the helpline medical social worker."They want to speak to someone they feel safe and comfortable with and they call us". 1 877 522-2123
The vaginal mesh lawsuit proceedings have begun" We want all women covered and we want them to get medical and legal help", the helpline representatives tell us. "We have the staff and capacity to help women by offering support and guidance"."They just feel more comfortable with a social worker then a law firm"
The outreach is a massive undertaking for the Vaginal Mesh Helpline. Their mission is clear and they are ready. They expect to be adding 5-10 new cities a week until they have the major cities in the U.S covered. The helpline is seeking all women who have not filed their vaginal mesh lawsuit "to stand up and seek justice".
"Our mission is clear, to reach all women suffering from a failed mesh and connect them with a vaginal mesh lawyer".
We asked if this was a vaginal mesh class action? Spitzer responded" I am not a lawyer but, it is my understanding that this is a multi district litigation, a consolidation of 1000's of lawsuits under one Judge""An MDL makes it easier for the trials to progress and is more cost effective"."Multidistrict litigation is a procedure utilized in the federal court system to transfer to one federal judge all pending civil cases of a similar type filed throughout the United States. This is usually happens with mass torts and dangerous drugs and medical devices effecting large groups like the vaginal mesh"."It is my understanding that in an MDL, or multidistrict litigation each lawsuit has it's own trial and verdict. This would not be the case in a vaginal mesh class action. We wondered if she understood the bellwether trials we are hearing about and she responded " Again I am not a lawyer but, it is my understanding that are small number of cases are brought before the judge to see how juries might react. This helps the vaginal mesh lawyers figure out whether they will be successful. and the results can also be used as a baseline in future trials."
Spitzer continues "
We have listened to so many women, husbands for wives, daughters for mothers, mothers for daughters and friends for friends and my heart goes out to all of them". The stories are horrific and many women have lost their marriages and have had their homes go into foreclosure due to the mesh"."The pain makes intimacy a thing of the past and many cannot work due to the pain and chronic incontinence""As one woman told us" I just want the damn thing out"
