Boston Scientific Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits in Massachusetts State Court Move Forward After a Defense Verdict in First Trial, Schlichter, Bogard & Denton Reports

St. Louis, M (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

Kristine Kraft, a partner at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP, reports that the Massachusetts state court trials involving transvaginal mesh (TVM) devices will move forward after a defense verdict in favor of Boston Scientific was rendered on July 29, 2014. (Albright v. Boston Scientific Corp., Case No. 12-909, Middlesex County Superior Court, Massachusetts).

Following nearly a three-week trial, Plaintiff Diane Albright’s design defect and failure to warn case involving Boston Scientific, the manufacturer of her transvaginal mesh device, went to a jury on July 28, 2014. Before a jury verdict could be rendered, it was required that eleven of the thirteen jurors agree when answering the jury questions -- and that threshold was met. The majority of jurors decided that Albright received adequate informed consent regarding the risks associated with the transvaginal mesh device manufactured by Boston Scientific.

Boston Scientific is facing thousands of other claims over their transvaginal mesh devices. According to the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation's most recent report, nearly 12,200 of those claims against Boston Scientific have been consolidated in a Multidistrict Litigation (In re: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2326, S.D. WV) before The Honorable Judge Joseph R. Goodwin in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The first federal trial in MDL 2326 is scheduled for November 3, 2014. In Massachusetts state court, there are nearly 1,700 claims still pending before The Honorable Judge Diane Kottmyer, the judge that oversaw the Albright case. The next Massachusetts state court trial is set for August 11, 2014.

Thousands of women allege that they have experienced complications from these transvaginal mesh devices, including device erosion, organ perforation, intense pain, inability to have sexual intercourse, infection, and the need to undergo multiple revision surgeries. “We continue to hear from individuals who allege to have suffered serious injuries associated with these transvaginal mesh devices,” says Kraft. “Despite the defense verdict in the first state court case against Boston Scientific, we will continue to fight for the rights of women alleging serious injuries due to these products.” The attorneys at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton are currently representing a multitude of women who allege to have suffered injuries as a result of TVM devices.
