Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Order in Federal C.R. Bard Mesh Implant Lawsuits

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims involving products manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc., continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. In an Order issued on May 17th, the Court denied a request by C.R. Bard to seal emails that included supplier information the company claimed would reveal trade secrets and other confidential, proprietary information about its suppliers. The emails were filed as exhibits by plaintiffs in response to certain motions made by Bard, according to the Order. (In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2187)

“We are pleased to see more progress in this litigation, as we continue to hear from women who have experienced painful vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to mesh implants marketed by C.R. Bard and other companies,” 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 federal C.R. Bard vaginal mesh litigation. Bernstein Liebhard continues to offer free mesh implant lawsuit consultations to women who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications following implantation of products manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

C.R. Bard Mesh Implant Lawsuits
Court records indicate that the C.R. Bard litigation is one of several consolidated proceedings underway in the Southern District of West Virginia involving alleged vaginal mesh complications. The first bellwether trial in the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation is scheduled to begin in June, and will involve a Bard Avaulta transvaginal mesh lawsuit. Other litigations underway in West Virginia include 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; and In re: Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327. Bernstein Liebhard LLP, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in these proceedings.

Hundreds of additional C.R. Bard mesh implant lawsuits have been consolidated in New Jersey Superior Court, Atlantic County, where Mr. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel. Court documents indicate that the proceeding’s first trial will begin in September 2013. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and). In addition, Mr. Grand has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in a second litigation established in Atlantic County Superior Court for Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10) He also served on the trial team in the litigation’s first Ethicon mesh trial, which concluded with an award of more than $11 million, including punitive damages, to the Plaintiff. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey)

Mesh implant lawsuits have been mounting since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug
Administration (FDA) revealed that it had received more than 1,000 reports of serious vaginal mesh complications over a three year period. In July 2011, the FDA revealed that reports of such complications had increased five-fold since the 2008 alert. The agency also modified the position it had taken in 2008 regarding the frequency of such complications in pelvic organ prolapse repair, stating that it no longer considered such injuries to be rare.*

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 800-511-5092.
