Date:8/12/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.mesh-lawyers.net/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured as a result of pelvic mesh products marketed by American Medical Systems, 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. According to a Pretrial Order issued on July 29th, the Court has granted the parties’ Joint Motion for an Agreed Order and Stipulation Regarding Third-Party Subpoenas. Court documents indicate that more than 8,860 vaginal mesh lawsuits are now pending against American Medical Systems in the federal litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for this proceeding. (In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325)

“Our Firm is representing numerous women in transvaginal mesh lawsuits involving products manufactured by American Medical Systems. We are looking forward to additional progress in this litigation in the months to come,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free vaginal mesh lawsuit reviews to women who have suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, allegedly due to pelvic mesh devices used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The litigation surrounding transvaginal mesh has been growing since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued its first of two alerts regarding the potential dangers associated with the use of such devices. All of the mesh lawsuits pending in the American Medical Systems litigation allege the company failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with its transvaginal mesh devices. According to court documents, the first bellwether trial of an American Medical Systems vaginal mesh lawsuit is set to begin in December.

Court records indicate that more than 20,000 mesh lawsuits have been filed against a number of other implant manufacturers in separate litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings involving Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187), and In re: Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).

Mr. Grand has also been named Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated litigations established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits that are currently underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, and was a member of the trial team on the first Ethicon trial in that proceeding, which ended 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)

Victims of serious transvaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
