Ethicon Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Mount, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes More than 16,000 Filings in Federal, State Litigations

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 05, 2013

Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, Inc. unit continues to be named a defendant in transvaginal mesh lawsuits ( ) filed on behalf of women who suffered mesh erosion, pain, infection, scarring, organ damage and other serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to the company’s Gynecare pelvic mesh devices.

According to court documents, more than 12,000 such claims are pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327) An additional 4,551 Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in a multicounty litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court.

“We are representing clients in each of these proceedings, and continue to hear from women on a regular basis who have allegedly suffered painful vaginal mesh complications following implantation of a Gynecare product. It is not at all surprising that more than 16,000 lawsuits have been filed between these two litigations,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to evaluate legal claims on behalf of women who suffered serious injuries, allegedly due to pelvic mesh products marketed by Ethicon, Inc. and other manufacturers.

Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Ethicon litigation underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Mr. Grand has also been named Co-Liaison Counsel in the New Jersey proceeding.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that more than 35,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in several multidistrict litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims pending in these proceedings similarly allege that transvaginal mesh devices marketed by Ethicon and other defendants were defectively designed and manufactured. They further allege that patients and doctors were not adequately warned of their serious risks.

In addition to his work on the federal Ethicon litigation, Bernstein Liebhard partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for three other federal vaginal mesh proceedings, including: American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325);Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187). He was also named Co-Liaison Counsel in a second litigation underway in Atlantic County Superior Court for lawsuits involving C.R. Bard products. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Mr. Grand was also a member of the Plaintiffs’ trial team for the first trial of an Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuit in the New Jersey multicounty litigation. That trial ended in March with an $11 million award to a woman who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to the Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)

Alleged victims of painful vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturers of these devices.
