Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Proceed Against Ethicon, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Order for Discovery Conferences in Federal Ethicon Litigation
Date:8/18/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 18, 2013

Vaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.mesh-lawyers.net/) involving 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. According to a Pretrial Order dated August 12, 2013, the Court has scheduled eight telephonic discovery conferences to be held each Friday through September 23, 2013. The first of these conferences was held on August 16th, while the next is scheduled for August 23rd at 3:00 p.m. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“We are representing numerous women who suffered terrible transvaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to Ethicon’s Gynecare pelvic mesh devices. We are pleased to see discovery progressing in 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 mesh lawsuits on behalf of women allegedly injured by pelvic mesh products marketed by Ethicon, Inc. and other manufacturers.

Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Ethicon Inc.’s Gynecare mesh products have been named in a growing number of vaginal mesh lawsuits since October 2008, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the first of two public health alerts to inform the public of the high rate of serious complications associated with the use of pelvic mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Court documents indicate that more than 8,400 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon in the Southern District of West Virginia, all of which allege the company’s Gynecare products caused women to suffer serious complications, including mesh erosion, infections, chronic pain and scarring. Plaintiffs accuse the company of failing to provide adequate warnings to doctors and patients about the significant risk of serious vaginal mesh complications.

The Ethicon litigation is just one of several that have been established in that district for vaginal mesh lawsuits. 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”).

Ethicon has also been named a defendant in more than 4,360 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 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 complications associated with transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
