Urological injuries occur often, sometimes resulting in difficult, painful, or emotionally fraught problems for the patient and potential health provider liability. The use of transvaginal mesh products has resulted in patient suffering and significant litigation. The rate of urological injury has been a significant concern.
Early diagnosis and intervention of the many potential urological injuries is important for the best possible outcome.

Attorneys, physicians, insurers, employers, manufacturers, and other potential parties to litigation need to understand the types of litigation issues that may arise in connection with a urological injury.
