Date:10/1/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured by Ethicon Inc.’s Gynecare pelvic mesh products continue to move forward in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Court Order issued on September 30th, Discovery Conferences have been scheduled through December 20, 2013 in the federal Ethicon mesh litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. The Order further states that the Court will reassess the need for additional conferences at the end of December. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“Our Firm is representing numerous women in this litigation who have suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to devices manufactured by Ethicon. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Ethicon litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to evaluate legal claims on behalf of women who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to products marketed by Ethicon, Inc. and other manufacturers.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court records indicate that more than 10,000 Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the proceeding underway in West Virginia federal court. According to an Order issued in the litigation on August 5th, the proceeding’s first trial of a transvaginal mesh lawsuit is set to begin on January 14, 2014. All of the claims pending in the multidistrict litigation allege that Ethicon’s Gynecare mesh products were defectively designed. The lawsuits further allege that Ethicon failed to provide patients and doctors with adequate warnings regarding the risk of serious vaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion, chronic pain, infection, and scarring.

According to court documents, more than 30,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits are now pending in several multidistrict litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, has also been named to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325);Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187).

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations currently underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court for C.R. Bard and Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuits. He was also a member of the trial team on the first Ethicon trial in that proceeding, which ended in March with an $11 million verdict for the Plaintiff. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Alleged victims of vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
