Date:9/14/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.meshlawsuit.com) continue to move forward in a Multicounty Litigation underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, a joint conference will be held on September 19, 2013, in all of the proceedings underway in West Virginia, including: 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); I n 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”). Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for these four litigations.

“We are representing numerous women who have filed vaginal mesh lawsuits in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in West Virginia. We are pleased to see these proceedings moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free case evaluations to women who allegedly experienced vaginal mesh complications following implantation of transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 20,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia. Plaintiffs who have filed claims in the proceedings allege that that the use of transvaginal mesh products caused women to suffer serious vaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion, scarring, infection, and chronic pain. Court records indicate that the federal litigation recently held its first trial of a transvaginal mesh lawsuit, which concluded on August 15th with the jury awarding $2 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who was injured by C.R. Bard’s Avaulta Plus device. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00195) The litigation’s second C.R. Bard trial was to commence the following week, but the case settled the same day opening arguments were to be delivered. Terms of the vaginal mesh settlement have not been disclosed. (Queen v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00012)

Thousands of additional vaginal mesh lawsuits are also pending in various state courts. Bernstein Liebhard partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court for Ethicon and C.R. Bard vaginal mesh lawsuits, and was a member of the Plaintiff’s team for the state’s first Ethicon trial. That case concluded in March with an $11 million verdict for a woman injured by a Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10; (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

Women who suffered serious vaginal mesh complications allegedly due to products marketed by C.R. Bard or another manufacturer may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries. Learn More about the complications allegedly associated with C.R.
