Date:12/25/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuitclaims.com/ ) filed against Boston Scientific Corp. continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Pretrial Order dated December 19, 2014, the Court has established schedules for two “waves” of discovery in the proceeding, with each wave consisting of 100 cases. The parties have each been directed to select 50 cases for each wave, with the selections for the first wave due by January 21, 2014. Selections for second wave cases are to be submitted by May 21, 2014. (In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326)

“We are representing numerous women who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to products marketed by Boston Scientific and other manufacturers. We are pleased to see that this litigation continues to progress towards bellwether trials,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to women who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries following implantation of transvaginal mesh. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Boston Scientific litigation.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, Boston Scientific is named a defendant in more than 8,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits that are pending in the multidistrict litigation underway in West Virginia. All of these lawsuits allege that pelvic mesh products marketed by the company to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused recipients to suffer serious vaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion and shrinkage, pain, infections, scarring and organ damage.

According to the December 19th Order, the first bellwether trial involving a transvaginal mesh lawsuit selected for the first wave of discovery in the Boston Scientific litigation is scheduled to begin in October 2014. The first trial involving a claim selected from the pool of cases for the second wave will begin in May 2015.

Boston Scientific is just one of several pelvic mesh manufacturers involved in litigations now underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325), C.R. Bard, Inc. (MDL 2326) and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327). According to court documents, at least 40,000 claims have been filed in the proceedings pending in the jurisdiction.

In addition to his participation in the federal transvaginal mesh litigations, Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations established for claims filed against C.R. Bard and Ethicon 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 suffered serious vaginal mesh complications allegedly due to a product manufactured by Boston Scientific or any other company may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
