Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward in Federal Litigations with Issuance of New Case Management Order, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/22/2013

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

Transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims involving products manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. continue to move forward in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. On July 16, 2013, the Court issued a Pretrial Order that schedules Case Management Conferences for all of the litigations currently pending in the Southern District of West Virginia through September 2014, including 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”). The next joint Conference in the proceedings will be held on September 19, 2013, according to the Order.

“We are representing hundreds of women in mesh lawsuits involving products marketed by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. We are pleased to see the federal litigations are moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal litigation established for American Medical Systems, C.R. Bard, Ethicon, and Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh claims. Bernstein Liebhard LLP is currently offering free legal reviews to women who may have been injured by transvaginal mesh used to repair pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that tens of thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been file in courts throughout the country 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 transvaginal mesh problems reported to the agency. In the warning, the FDA also re-classified the frequency of injuries stemming from the use of mesh in pelvic organ prolapse repair as “not rare,” which was a change from the position it had taken in October 2008.*

Thousands of additional mesh lawsuits involving Ethicon and C.R. Bard products are also pending in two consolidated proceedings underway in Atlantic County Superior Court, New Jersey. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10). Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both of these litigations. In March, the nation’s first trial involving an Ethicon mesh product concluded in New Jersey state court, with the jury awarding more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the Plaintiff. Mr. Grand also served on the Plaintiff’s trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

While none of the companies involved in these litigations have issued a mesh recall recently, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit did announce last summer that it would stop selling several of its Gynecare mesh products. However, the company said safety concerns did not play a role in its decision, and did not characterize the move as a recall.**

Women who suffered complications allegedly due to transvaginal mesh marketed by American Medical Systems, Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. should consider filing a mesh lawsuit to obtain compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
