Federal Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Order in American Medical Systems Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Date:6/11/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims involving products manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc. continue to move forward in a federal litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Pretrial Order issued by the Court on June 10th, presentations regarding the selection of bellwether cases will be made on June 25th, after which the court will designate five vaginal mesh lawsuits for the litigation’s bellwether trials. The Order further stipulates that Expert Discovery for the bellwether trials will conclude by September 25th, 2013. (In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325)

“We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward, as we continue to hear from alleged victims of vaginal mesh complications. The bellwether trials will help to gauge how juries could weigh claims in similar transvaginal mesh lawsuits,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently representing hundreds of women in vaginal mesh lawsuits who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, allegedly due to products marketed by American Medical Systems and other manufacturers. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the American Medical Systems litigation.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court records indicate that American Medical Systems has been named in more than 5,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits, most of which are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia. The litigation involving American Medical Systems and other device manufacturers has been growing since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned the public that it had received more than 1,000 reports of serious complications associated with vaginal mesh products over a three year period.* In July 2011, the FDA reported that complaints associated with transvaginal prolapse repair had grown five-fold since the 2008 alert. The agency also advised that it no longer regarded the frequency of such complications to be rare.** However, despite both mounting complication reports and lawsuits, American Medical Systems has not indicated any plans to issue a vaginal mesh recall for its products.

In addition to the American Medical Systems litigation, several other vaginal mesh proceedings are moving forward in the Southern District of West Virginia, including: In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2326); In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2187”), and In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2327”). Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in these litigations. Court documents show that the first of the litigations’ bellwether trials, involving a C.R. Bard product, is scheduled to begin on July 8, 2013.

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits that are currently underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court. 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)

Women who have been seriously harmed by transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
