more than 1,000 lawsuits pending against Ethicon, Inc. by patients alleging organ damage and other injuries from the implants
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 04, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Lou Ellen Hobbs. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on May 11th, 2012, New Yorkers, Lou Ellen Hobbs and Earl Hobbs, filed a lawsuit “Hobbs et al v. Boston Scientific Corporation” in New York Western District Court (case no. 1:2012cv00437) alleging Lou Ellen Hobbs suffered severe complications from her Transvaginal Mesh leading to a second surgery. Surgical Mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Plaintiff received her Transvaginal Mesh in 2008 and started suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections. A few years later, she underwent a second surgery to help her treat the complications.
The lawsuit was transferred to the Multi District Litigation case taking place in West Virginia where three transvaginal mesh litigations were consolidated into a single proceeding. Boston Scientific Corp. (MDL No. 2326) is among the defendants.
