American Medical Systems’ Transvaginal Mesh Allegedly Caused Pennsylvania Woman Severe and Painful Injuries, According to Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:6/24/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by dangerous drugs and medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Pennsylvania woman who alleges that she was injured by a transvaginal mesh product manufactured by American Medical Systems (AMS). The suit was filed on May 17, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (Case No. 2:13-cv-11742) in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325). American Medical Systems, Inc. has been named as Defendant.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with the SPARC and IntePro LLP Y-Sling in May 2011. The lawsuit alleges that these devices are defective and caused serious and possibly permanent injuries. Furthermore, the Defendants allegedly knew about these defects but did not warn consumers in order to protect their own financial interests. The Plaintiff is suing for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and economic loss, and is seeking compensation for punitive damages.

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the United States. Many of them have been consolidated into five MDLs now pending in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The other MDLs are: In Re: Boston Scientific Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2326; In Re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187; In Re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327; and In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2387.
