Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Orders in Federal Litigations for Ethicon, American Medical Systems Lawsuits

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

As thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuit ( claims continue to move forward in courts throughout the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that new Pretrial Orders have been issued in the federal litigations underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, for claims filed against Ethicon, Inc. and American Medical Systems, Inc. that provide for the severance of several actions in the proceedings. The Orders, which are dated November 5th and 6th respectively, pertain to procedures for filing certain individual transvaginal mesh lawsuits in the multidistrict litigations. (In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of women who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to pelvic mesh products manufactured by American Medical Systems, Ethicon, and others. Many of our clients have had experiences that echo allegations put forth in these claims,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in both the American Medical Systems and Ethicon litigations underway in West Virginia federal court. The firm’s transvaginal mesh lawyers continue to offer free legal evaluations to women who suffered mesh erosion, chronic pain, infections, scarring, and other serious complications, allegedly due to transvaginal mesh used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 30,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits are now pending in several multidistrict litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. This includes more than 11,500 claims filed against American Medical Systems, and more than 11,400 involving Ethicon. All of the lawsuits pending in the proceedings allege that the companies’ pelvic mesh products used to transvaginally repair pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured. Defendants are accused of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding the serious risk of vaginal mesh complications associated with the devices.

In addition to his work on the federal litigations for American Medical Systems and Ethicon, Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings underway in the Southern District of West Virginia for transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed against Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326) and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187).

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations established in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court for claims involving pelvic mesh manufactured by C.R. Bard and Ethicon. 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 who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to the Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
