Mississippi Woman’s Injuries Allegedly Caused by Ethicon Inc.’s Transvaginal Mesh Device; Parker Waichman LLP Files Lawsuit
Date:5/16/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Mississippi woman who alleges that she was injured by two transvaginal mesh devices.

The suit was filed on April 30, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division (Case No. 2:13-cv-09646), where it is one of many cases pending in the multidistrict litigation entitled In Re: Ethicon Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327. Ethicon Inc., Ethicon LLC and Johnson & Johnson are named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with the Prolift and TVT sling on Nov. 20, 2008. The lawsuit alleges that this device is defective and caused a number of serious injuries. Furthermore, the suit alleges that the Defendant knew about these risks and failed to warn the Plaintiff, her doctor or other consumers. She is suing for negligence on three counts of strict liability (design defect, manufacturing defect and failure to warn), breach of express and implied warranty, fraudulent concealment and punitive damages.

A Joint Status Conference is scheduled for May 23rd regarding the thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The lawsuits have been formulated into five MDLs, which are entitled: 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; 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.
