Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Federal Plaintiff Allowed to Pursue Claims Related to Use of Prolene in Ethicon Mesh Products, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/14/2014

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

The federal judge overseeing thousands of Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) has ruled that plaintiffs in one case will be able to pursue certain claims involving the company’s use of a material called Prolene in some of its pelvic mesh devices, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated July 8, 2014, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin of the Southern District of West Virginia ruled that the claims are not preempted because the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) never categorically approved the material for use in medical devices. Instead, the agency only cleared Prolene in relation to its use as a suture, and “did not examine whether that same material was safe when woven together to create a transvaginal mesh product.” (Edwards, et al. v. Ethicon Inc., et al., No. 2:12-9972)

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of women in the Southern District of West Virginia who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to products manufactured by Ethicon, Inc. and other companies. We have been monitoring this issue closely,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free legal evaluations to women who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries following the implantation of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.

Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Ethicon, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, is named a defendant in nearly 20,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuit now pending in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims similarly allege that the company’s pelvic mesh products used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused recipients to suffer a wide variety of painful, and sometimes permanent, vaginal mesh complications. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Ethicon litigation. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

Court records indicate that more than 60,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against several manufacturers in the Southern District of West Virginia. Mr. Grand is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for a number of these proceedings, including: American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187).

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in a second Ethicon litigation underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, where court documents indicate well over 5,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed. Mr. Grand also served on the Plaintiff's team in the proceeding’s first trial of an Ethicon claim. That case concluded in March 2013, when the Plaintiff was awarded more than $11 million for injuries she suffered from Prolift mesh. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-1)

In addition, Mr. Grand has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in a second litigation underway in Atlantic County Superior Court for lawsuits involving C.R. Bard products. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Women who were allegedly harmed by transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
