If you are experiencing harmful side effects as a result of having received a surgical mesh implant, you deserve compensation for your injuries. That includes your out-of-pocket costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. But don’t expect the manufacturer of your mesh implant to volunteer to cover your expenses.
You’ve probably heard about no-fee-until-you-win arrangements. It’s simple, and you’ll get it here. Only if and when you recover money to compensate you for your harm will you pay RLG. Otherwise, you pay nothing at all.
If you call for a free initial claim evaluation, you have no obligation whatsoever to hire RLG to represent you. If you do want RLG to stand up for you, we’ll send you an information package with a retainer agreement.
Every legal claim has a time limit. If you don’t sue in time, you risk losing your claim forever. You don’t want to delay. You want to be made whole again. So call RLG now to get the process started.
Unfortunately, when the clock starts—and how long it will run—isn’t always clear before it’s too late. That’s why speaking to a lawyer as soon as possible is the smart thing to do.
