Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Joint Status Conference in Federal Litigations
Date:3/30/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 30, 2013

As women in the U.S. continue to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports that the next status conference in the federal litigations underway in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia will be held on April 18th at 1:00 p.m. According to a calendar posted on the court’s website, this joint Status Conference will take place in four federal transvaginal mesh litigations: 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, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in all of these proceedings.

“We continue to hear from women who experienced the dangerous side effects of vaginal mesh. We are pleased to see these litigations moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm has filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits on behalf of hundreds of women who suffered pain, scarring, mesh erosion, infection and other side effects stemming from the surgical material. Claims pending in the four federal litigations of transvaginal mesh lawsuits were filed over products marketed by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The number of lawsuits filed in the nationwide litigation surrounding transvaginal mesh has steadily increased since 2011, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health alert stating there had been a five-fold increase in the amount of adverse event reports of transvaginal mesh complications filed with the agency. In the warning, the FDA also re-classified the frequency of vaginal mesh injuries stemming from pelvic organ prolapse repair as “not rare,” which was upgraded from its previous position that frequency of such complications was “rare.”*
Consolidated proceedings for transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed over products manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit and C.R. Bard are underway in New Jersey Superior Court, Atlantic County as well. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10).
In both of these litigations, Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel. Earlier this month, a jury in New Jersey Superior Court awarded more than $11 million to the Plaintiff in the nation’s first trial involving an Ethicon mesh product. As part of this reward, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay the Plaintiff $7.76 million in punitive damages. Mr. Grand was a member of the trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

Women who allegedly suffered transvaginal mesh complications after being implanted with the surgical material may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred by their injuries.
