Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Order Dismissing Endo Entities as Defendants in Federal Vaginal Mesh Litigations
Date:4/14/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) April 14, 2013

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits continue to proceed in multidistrict litigations underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a joint Pretrial Order dated April 3rd, Endo Health Solutions, Inc., Endo Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and American Medical Systems Holdings, Inc. (Endo Entities) have been dismissed as Defendants, per an agreement between the Endo Entities, Defendant American Medical Systems, Inc., and Plaintiffs’ attorneys. The Order applies to all of the vaginal mesh lawsuits filed in the Southern District of West Virginia, including those pending in In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2325”); In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2326); In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2187”); and In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“ MDL No. 2327”). Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in all four of these proceedings.

“We are pleased to see these litigations moving forward, as we continue to hear from women who have allegedly suffered horrific transvaginal mesh complications following surgery to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently representing hundreds of women in vaginal mesh lawsuits who suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, allegedly due to products marketed by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Vaginal Mesh Complications
The litigation surrounding vaginal mesh has been growing since 2011, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that there had been a five-fold increase in reports of serious transvaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion through vaginal tissue, infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence. The FDA also modified its previous position on the frequency of such complications, stating in the alert that vaginal mesh injuries associated with pelvic organ prolapse repair were not rare. In January 2012, the agency ordered the manufacturers of vaginal mesh devices used in prolapse repair to conduct post-market safety studies as part of its review.

In addition to the vaginal mesh lawsuits pending in the federal multidistrict litigations, thousands of additional claims involving Ethicon and C.R. Bard products are also pending in two consolidated proceedings underway in Atlantic County Superior Court, New Jersey. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10). Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both of these litigations. Earlier this month, the nation’s first trial involving an Ethicon mesh product concluded in New Jersey state court, with the jury awarding more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the Plaintiff. Mr. Grand also served on the Plaintiff’s trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

Victims of alleged vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries. A wealth of information regarding transvaginal mesh lawsuits can be found at Bernstein Liebhard's website. To learn more, please call 1-877-779-1414.
