Date:9/29/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 29, 2013

More than 10,000 cases have now been filed in a federal litigation of Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuitclaims.com/) currently pending in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

According to a Case List update from September 24th, 2013, a total of 10,108 lawsuits alleging injuries from the company’s line of Gynecare mesh products have been filed in the federal proceeding. These claims were brought on behalf of women who may have sustained mesh erosion, chronic pain, infection, organ perforations and other complications stemming from implants manufactured by the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary. A recent court order indicates that the first bellwether trials in this litigation have been slated to begin on August 19, 2014, and will involve Gynecare Prolift devices. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“We are pleased to see the number of cases in this Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuit proceeding continuing to grow. On a regular basis, our Firm hears from women who allegedly experienced mesh erosion, chronic pain and other life-altering injuries after being implanted with Ethicon’s Gynecare Prolift products,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing individuals who have been harmed by defective drugs and medical devices including transvaginal mesh. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is currently serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Ethicon mesh litigation. The Firm continues to offer free and confidential case evaluations on behalf of women who may have suffered chronic pain, vaginal scarring, infection or another injury after receiving a pelvic mesh device from such manufacturers as C.R. Bard Inc., American Medical Systems, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp., in addition to Ethicon, Inc.

Coupled with the mounting number of Ethicon lawsuits filed in the federal West Virginia litigation, court documents issued at the end of September indicated that a total of 30,000 cases involving transvaginal mesh products from C.R.

Mr. Grand is currently a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the litigations involving C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific.

Thousands of Ethicon Gynecare mesh lawsuits have also been consolidated in a multicounty litigation currently underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court. According to a recent Case List posted on the court’s website, a total of 4,421 cases had been filed at this location as of September 23rd. Mr. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in this proceeding, which concluded its first trial in March with an $11 million damage award to a woman who sustained injuries caused by Ethicon’s Gynecare Prolift device. He also served on the Plaintiff’s trial team in this case. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)
