Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Report of Texas Probe into Ethicon Pelvic Mesh Marketing
Date:7/11/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

As transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/)
filed against Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc. unit continue to mount in U.S. courts, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that the Texas Attorney General’s Office has acknowledged that it is investigating the company’s marketing of surgical mesh products used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. According to a report from kens5.com, the probe began nearly two years ago to examine "possible violations" related to the "advertising, marketing, promotion, sale and distribution of surgical mesh products..." Among other things, the state’s Attorney General has demanded that Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon turn over documents related to safety and research, as well as "financial and other incentives" paid to doctors and representatives selling mesh products. In addition to Texas, attorneys general from several other states are also involved, including Washington, California, South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, Colorado, and Maryland.*

“Our Firm is representing numerous women who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to Ethicon products. We are pleased to see that this investigation is moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to evaluate vaginal mesh lawsuits on behalf of women who were allegedly harmed by transvaginal mesh implants.

Vaginal Mesh Complications
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been reviewing the safety of transvaginal mesh since October 2008, when it first alerted the public to the serious risk of transvaginal mesh complications associated with these products. In April, the agency proposed new regulations that, if finalized, would reclassify mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse as high-risk medical devices, and subject the products to greater regulatory scrutiny.

Court documents indicate that more than 19,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for this proceeding. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

In addition to his work on the federal litigation, Mr. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in a consolidated proceeding established for Ethicon mesh lawsuits in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, where more than 5,580 claims have been filed. Mr. Grand was a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team for its first trial. That case ended in March 2013 with a jury awarding $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who suffered vaginal mesh complications related to the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10).

Mr. Grand is also a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in a number of other transvaginal mesh litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including those involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187). He was also appointed Co-Liaison Counsel in a second proceeding involving C.R. Bard devices that is moving forward in Atlantic County Superior Court. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Women who were implanted with transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation if they experienced mesh erosion, chronic pain, organ damage, or other serious vaginal complications.
