Date:11/2/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 02, 2013

More than 11,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuit (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) claims filed against American Medical Systems, Inc. continue to proceed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents dated October 25, 2013, the Court has issued a Stipulated Protective Order that pertains to certain non-party documents that were produced pursuant to subpoenas issued by American Medical Systems. (In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325)

“Our Firm is representing numerous women in vaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in this multidistrict litigation. We are pleased that the proceeding is moving forward so efficiently, and look forward to additional progress in the coming months,” 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 the American Medical Systems litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to offer free legal evaluations to alleged victims of mesh erosion, pain, infection, scarring, and other serious transvaginal mesh complications.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court filings show that American Medical Systems has been named in 11,360 vaginal mesh lawsuits filed in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the lawsuits allege that the company’s pelvic mesh products to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed, and that American Medical Systems failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of serious transvaginal mesh complications.

The litigation involving transvaginal mesh has been growing since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Public Health Alert warning that it had logged 1,000 reports of serious transvaginal mesh complications over a three year period. 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. The transvaginal mesh complications most frequently reported to the agency involved chronic infections, organ damage, and mesh erosion and shrinkage.

In addition to the proceeding involving American Medical Systems, court records show that several other multidistrict litigations have been established in the Southern District of West Virginia for similar transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed against other manufacturers. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings involving Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187), and In re: Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).

Mr. Grand has also been named Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon vaginal 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)
