Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Continue, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Reported Settlement of American Medical System Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Date:6/22/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 22, 2013

As transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims continue to move forward in courts throughout the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that settlements have been reached in some lawsuits involving devices manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc. According to a Bloomberg.com report published on June 20, 2013, Endo Health Systems, the parent of American Medical Systems, recently disclosed agreements to pay $55 million to settle claims involving certain of its pelvic mesh products, including Perigee, Apogee and Elevate implants. However, the settlements affect only a small number of the vaginal mesh lawsuits currently pending against the company, Bloomberg.com said.*

“News of these settlements is certainly of interest to our Firm, as we continue to represent hundreds of women who have suffered serious complications, allegedly due to devices manufactured by American Medical Systems and other companies,” 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 and other manufacturers.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to Bloomberg.com, American Medical Systems is named in more than 5,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits, most of which are pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. (In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325) Claims against American Medical Systems and other manufacturers have been mounting since July 2011, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health alert stating there had been a five-fold increase in vaginal mesh complications reported to the agency. In the warning, the FDA also re-classified the frequency of complications stemming from pelvic organ prolapse repair as “not rare,” which was a change from the position it had taken previously.** Since then, a number of women’s groups have called on the FDA to order a transvaginal mesh recall, Bloomberg.com said.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal American Medical Systems litigation, and for several other vaginal mesh proceedings now underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including: 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”). The litigation’s first trial of a transvaginal mesh lawsuit is scheduled to begin on July 8th, and will involve a C.R. Bard claim.

Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court involving products manufactured by C.R. Bard and Ethicon. In addition, he was a member of the trial team for the first Ethicon mesh lawsuit 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)

Women who have allegedly suffered serious transvaginal mesh injuries may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
