Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Federal Judge Overseeing Boston Scientific Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Selects Bellwether Cases, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:9/1/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 01, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuit (http://www.mesh-lawyers.net/) claims involving products manufactured by 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 issued by the Court on August 29th, four vaginal mesh lawsuits have been selected for the litigation’s first two rounds of bellwether trials. The first round of trials will begin on February 11, 2014, and will involve lawsuits filed over injuries allegedly related to the use of Pinnacle mesh products. The second round will start on June 17, 2014, and will involve cases brought against Obtryx pelvic mesh. (In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326)

“The bellwether trials will provide important clues into how other juries might weigh claims in similar transvaginal mesh lawsuits involving Boston Scientific. We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm’s vaginal mesh lawyers are currently representing hundreds of women who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, allegedly due to transvaginal mesh products marketed by a number of manufacturers. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Boston Scientific litigation.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that Boston Scientific has been named in more than 5,800 lawsuits filed on behalf of women who claim that the company’s pelvic mesh products caused them to suffer mesh erosion, chronic pain, infections and other life-altering vaginal mesh complications. Plaintiffs further allege that Boston Scientific failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with surgical mesh it marketed for the transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

The litigation surrounding transvaginal mesh devices used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence has been growing since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned the public that it had received more than 1,000 reports of serious complications associated with vaginal mesh products over a three year period.* Less than 3 years later, in July 2011, the FDA warned that complaints associated with transvaginal prolapse repair had grown five-fold since the 2008 alert, and stated that it no longer considered these types of injuries to be rare.

Boston Scientific is just one of several manufacturers involved in litigations for surgical mesh lawsuits established 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). The first bellwether trial in the federal C.R. Bard litigation concluded earlier this month, with the jury awarding $2 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who suffered vaginal mesh complications following implantation of the company’s Avaulta Plus device. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00195)

Mr. Grand has also been named Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits 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 have allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
