The defective vaginal mesh attorneys at Parilman & Associates, represent clients who have been harmed by using defective products. The attorneys at the firm hereby alert the public of a quickly-approaching deadline to be included in the case census that has been ordered by the federal judge overseeing the Multi-District Litigation, or MDL, relating to vaginal mesh products manufactured by C.R. Bard.
The defective products lawyers at Parilman & Associates have been representing clients across the United States in matters relating to injuries suffered by dangerous medical products for several years. The attorneys handle cases involving dangerous medications, dangerous medical devices, asbestos and mesothelioma claims and many others. The attorneys at the firm hereby alert the public to a fast-approaching deadline for injured consumers to be included in a census that relates to the Multi-District Litigation, or MDL, that is currently ongoing against vaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard.
The case, entitled IN RE: C.R. BARD, INC., PELVIC REPAIR SYSTEM PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION, is proceeding in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division. It has been assigned a case number of MDL 2187 and it is being presided over by U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin. The case involves thousands of individual plaintiffs who are claiming that they were injured by using the Bard Avulta vaginal mesh product among others manufactured by the same company.
On December 31, 2013, Judge Goodwin issued a Pretrial Order, and a link to that order can be found here. The order stated that for the good of the MDL, it is important to obtain an accurate accounting of the number of claims that are being pursued against C.R. Bard. Plaintiffs’ attorneys are instructed to register their individual case or cases by January 23, 2014. These cases include those that have been filed and not yet been consolidated into the MDL, any individual claims that are being pursued in state court and any claims that have not yet been filed against the manufacturer.
The ‘census spreadsheet’ on which the attorneys will need to register their cases will include information such as the name of each plaintiff, information regarding the specific product used and a description of the harm that each plaintiff suffered allegedly because of using mesh products manufactured by the defendant. The purpose of such an order is to obtain a better understanding of the number of claims that exist against the defendant and the potential relationship between them in terms of the similarity of the products used, the harm suffered and the allegations regarding C.R. Bard.
Those who have been considering a claim against the company because of harm they have suffered as a result of using one of these vaginal mesh products are urged to contact an attorney as soon as possible to decide how they should proceed.
