Mesh Lawsuit - First Bellwether Trial in Federal C.R. Bard Transvaginal Mesh Litigation Set to Begin Monday, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/26/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 26, 2013

A federal trial involving a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuit is set to begin on Monday, July 29th, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the bellwether trial will be the first in the multidistrict litigations established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia for mesh lawsuits involving C.R. Bard and other manufacturers. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 2:11-cv-00195)

“We are representing hundreds of women in transvaginal mesh lawsuits, and believe the outcome of this bellwether case will help in evaluating similar claims,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffery S. Grand, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal C.R. Bard litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLPcontinues to offer free legal consultations 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.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, C.R. Bard is facing nearly 4, 550 transvaginal mesh lawsuits in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in West Virginia. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187) The Plaintiff in the case, a public health nurse from Georgia, has undergone multiple corrective surgeries due to complications her mesh lawsuit alleges were the result of a defective Avaulta Plus device she received in 2009.

Since 2008, the U.S. Food & Drug Administrations (FDA) has issued two Public Health Alerts regarding the risk of serious complications associated with mesh implants used to surgically repair pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. In July 2011, the agency declared that injuries associated with their use in prolapse repair could no longer be considered rare. The following January, C.R. Bard and other manufacturers were ordered by the agency to conduct safety studies of their transvaginal mesh products to help the FDA better understand their risks.* However, the FDA has not issued a mesh recall for any of these devices.

Thousands of mesh lawsuits have since been filed against the manufacturers of these devices. Court documents indicate that the claims filed against C.R. Bard are among more than 20,000 similar complaints that have been consolidated in separate multidistrict litigations in the Southern District of West Virginia. Other proceedings currently underway there include: 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. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in all of these litigations.

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations underway in New Jersey Superior Court for C.R. Bard and Ethicon mesh lawsuits. In addition, he was a member of the trial team on the first Ethicon trial, 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 suffered mesh erosion, chronic pain, infections, bleeding, scarring and other serious complications allegedly due to transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
