Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Update: Second Trial Against Boston Scientific Begins in Massachusetts State Court, Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP Reports
Date:8/26/2014

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 26, 2014

On August 14, the second bellwether trial against Boston Scientific began in the Massachusetts state court consolidated litigation. The trial involves allegations by plaintiff Maria Cardenas that the Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh (TVM) product she was implanted with caused her serious injuries. (Cardenas v. Boston Scientific Corp., Case No. 12-02912, Superior Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, County of Middlesex).

This will be the second trial involving Boston Scientific that has occurred in Massachusetts state court. The first case against Boston Scientific resulted in a defense verdict in favor of Boston Scientific on July 29, 2014. (Albright v. Boston Scientific Corp., Case No. 12-909, Superior Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, County of Middlesex). Following nearly a three-week trial, the majority of jurors decided that the plaintiff received adequate informed consent regarding the risks associated with the TVM device manufactured by Boston Scientific.

Boston Scientific is facing thousands of other claims over their transvaginal mesh devices. According to the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation's most recent report, over 12,500 of those claims against Boston Scientific have been consolidated in a Multidistrict Litigation (In re: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2326, S.D. WV) before The Honorable Judge Joseph R. Goodwin in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The first federal trial in MDL 2326 is scheduled for November 3, 2014. In Massachusetts state court, there are nearly 1,700 claims still pending.

Thousands of women allege that they have experienced complications from these transvaginal mesh devices, including device erosion, organ perforation, intense pain, inability to have sexual intercourse, infection, and the need to undergo multiple revision surgeries. “We continue to hear from individuals who allege to have suffered serious injuries associated with these transvaginal mesh devices,” says Kristine Kraft, partner at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP. “We will fight for the rights of women alleging serious injuries due to these products and our office is offering free and confidential case reviews to those who allege to have suffered injuries.”
