Date:6/18/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 19, 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 an Arizona woman who alleges that she was injured by transvaginal mesh products. The suit was filed on May 30th in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (Civil Action No. 2:13-cv-12677) in the multidistrict litigation entitled In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325). American Medical Systems, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corporation have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with the MiniArc Sling and the Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit in May 2008.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.    

AMS and Boston Scientific are being charged with negligence, four counts of strict liability (including design defect, manufacturing defect, failure to warn and defective product) breach of express and implied warranty, fraudulent concealment and constructive fraud. The Plaintiff is suing for pain and suffering, emotional distress, 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 pending in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The other MDLs include: In Re: Boston Scientific Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2326; In Re: C.R. Bard, I
