C.R. Bard Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward, With Issuance of New Pretrial Order in Federal Multidistrict Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:8/4/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

Vaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) filed against C.R. Bard, Inc. continue to move forward in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated July 30th, the federal judge overseeing thousands of such cases in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, has established new discovery procedures aimed at further streamlining the litigation process. At the conclusion of the pre-trial proceedings outlined in the Order, the Court will transfer each directly-filed case to a federal district of proper venue, while the vaginal mesh lawsuits transferred by the to the Southern District of West Virginia U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation will be remanded to the federal district where they were originally filed. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of women who allegedly suffered serious transvaginal mesh complications due to devices marketed by C.R. Bard and other companies. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is a member of the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in the federal C.R. Bard litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to offer free legal evaluations to women who allegedly suffered serious injuries following implantation of devices manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc., as well as American Medical Systems, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that C.R. Bard is named a defendant in more than 9,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits that are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the lawsuits claim that surgical mesh devices marketed by the company to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence caused recipients to suffer serious transvaginal mesh complications, including chronic pain, mesh erosion, scarring and organ damage. The claims further allege that C.R. Bard failed to subject its transvaginal mesh devices to appropriate testing in order to ensure their safety and effectiveness.

In addition to his work on the federal multidistrict litigation involving C.R. Bard, Bernstein Liebhard partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs' Steering Committees in a number of other consolidated proceedings underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; and In re: Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327.

Mr. Grand was also appointed Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations that were established in New Jersey's Atlantic County Superior Court for vaginal mesh lawsuits filed against C.R. Bard and Ethicon. He was also a member of the trial team for the proceedings' first Ethicon mesh trial. That case ended in March 2013, after a woman injured by a Gynecare Prolift device was awarded more than $11 million in damages. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Alleged victims of serious transvaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages.
