Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Orders in Federal Transvaginal Mesh Litigations

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

More than 30,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuit ( filings continue to move forward in federal multidistrict litigations now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to Orders issued by the Court on November 14, 2013, a revised Short Form Complaint and Amended Short Form Complaint have been approved for all proceedings, including those naming American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325), Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); C.R. Bard, Inc. (MDL No. 2187) and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327) as defendants.

“We are representing hundreds of women in this litigation who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to products manufactured by these defendants, and continue to receive inquiries from other mesh recipients on a regular basis. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently representing hundreds of women in transvaginal mesh lawsuits who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries following treatment with pelvic mesh devices. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in the federal multidistrict litigations involving American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, and Ethicon.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
All of the vaginal mesh lawsuits pending in the Southern District of West Virginia accuse the manufacturers of various transvaginal mesh products used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence of failing to provide adequate warnings about their serious risks to doctors and patients. In August, the proceedings’ first bellwether trial concluded with the jury awarding $2 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications following implantation of an Avaulta mesh device manufactured by C.R. Bard. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00195)

The litigation surrounding transvaginal mesh got underway shortly after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a 2008 Public Health Alert revealing that it had received 1,000 reports of serious injuries associated with vaginal mesh products over a three year period. In July 2011, the FDA warned that the number of injuries reported in relation to transvaginal prolapse repair had grown three-fold since its prior alert. Most significantly, the rise in these types of vaginal mesh complications prompted the FDA to modify its previous stance that such injuries were rare.

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)

Alleged victims of vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
