If my mother passed away before her vaginal mesh lawsuit was completely settled, is there any way to find out information?

I cannot find any information about the lawsuit. The only thing I know is she said that she signed a paper online to give the firm permission to make a settlement. It was filed in a state other than the one that she lived in and the law office was in a third state.

I am so sorry for your loss.  If your Mother passed away during a lawsuit then some one has to be appointed in her place to represent her estate.  The attorneys should be doing that and you can be "it" if you should so choose. I would consult with an attorney near you about writing the lawyers that represent her in the suit a letter asap.  Good luck.
