Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP Note Upcoming Conference in New Jersey Pelvic Mesh Implant Lawsuits
Date:4/27/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) April 27, 2013

The transvaginal mesh lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP note that the next Case Management Conference in the New Jersey pelvic mesh litigation has been scheduled for May 16, 2013. Court records indicate that just over 3,100 mesh implant lawsuits involving products manufactured by C.R. Bard Inc., and Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc. unit have been filed in two consolidated litigations underway in Atlantic County Superior Court. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both of these pelvic mesh litigations. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)

“We look forward to this next conference, and are pleased to see these litigations moving forward. We continue to hear from women who have allegedly suffered painful transvaginal mesh side effects related to products marketed by both of these 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 mesh implant lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to victims of mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, and other alleged transvaginal mesh side effects.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Thousands of women filed mesh implant lawsuits against C.R. Bard, Ethicon and other manufacturers in the wake of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) 2011 Public Safety Alert, in which the agency revealed that there had been a five-fold increase in reports of serious transvaginal mesh side effects, including mesh erosion through vaginal tissue, infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence. The FDA also modified its previous position on the frequency of such complications, stating in the alert that injuries associated with pelvic organ prolapse repair were not rare. The following January, the agency ordered the manufacturers of mesh implant devices used in transvaginal prolapse repair to conduct post-market safety studies as part of its review. *

The nation’s first trial involving an Ethicon mesh product concluded in New Jersey state court in March, with the jury awarding more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the Plaintiff. Bernstein Liebhard partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, was a member of the trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

In addition to the mesh implant lawsuits pending in the New Jersey litigations, thousands of additional claims have been filed in consolidated proceedings now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, 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”). Mr. Grand is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in these four proceedings.

Alleged victims of transvaginal mesh side effects may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
