Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Release of New Order in Federal Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Litigation
Date:8/28/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.mesh-lawyers.net/) alleging serious injuries due to Ethicon Inc.’s Gynecare pelvic mesh products continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Pretrial Order issued by the Court on August 26, 2013, procedures have been established for the selection of vaginal mesh lawsuits for the litigation’s first bellwether trials involving Gynecare Prolift devices. The first of those trials is scheduled to begin on August 19, 2014. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“Our Firm is representing numerous women who have suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to the defective nature of Gynecare Prolift mesh. We are pleased with the progress of this litigation,” 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 Ethicon litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to evaluate transvaginal mesh lawsuits on behalf of women allegedly injured by pelvic mesh products marketed by Ethicon, Inc. and other manufacturers.

Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that more than 4,400 Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits are currently pending in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims allege that the company’s Gynecare pelvic mesh products were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused women to suffer serious vaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion, scarring, and chronic pain and infection.

Vaginal mesh lawsuits have been mounting since October 2008, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted the public that it had received more than 1,000 reports of serious vaginal mesh complications. In July 2011, the FDA issued a second alert, warning that the frequency of complications associated with transvaginal prolapse repair was “not rare.” While the FDA warnings did not result in any vaginal mesh recall, Ethicon announced in June 2012 that it would stop sales of some of its Gynecare devices, including Prolift mesh, due to commercial concerns.*

The Ethicon litigation is just one of several that have been established in the Southern District of West Virginia for vaginal mesh lawsuits since the FDA issued its alerts. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs Steering Committees for: In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2326); In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2325”); and In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2187”).

Johnson & Johnson and its Ethicon unit are also named defendants in more than 4,400 transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court. C.R. Bard faces just over 800 claims filed in a second consolidated proceeding pending before the same judge. Mr. Grand has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in both litigations, and was a member of the trial team for the first Ethicon Prolift trial that concluded 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)

Alleged victims of serious vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
