Bernstein Liebhard LLP is pleased to announce that partner Jeffrey S. Grand has been asked to be a guest speaker at two pelvic mesh litigation conferences this fall. The first pelvic mesh litigation conference will take place on September 14, 2011. At that conference, Mr. Grand will discuss current orders, procedures and the status of discovery in In re Pelvic Mesh Litigation (No. 006341-10 (N.J. Super. Ct.). The consolidated pelvic mesh litigation is composed of all of the transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed in New Jersey state courts. Mr. Grand’s second speaking engagement will take place on October 4, 2011. During this transvaginal mesh conference, he will share insight regarding important case intake information and discovery considerations that pelvic mesh lawyers should be cognizant of when litigating transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
Jeffrey S. Grand Previously Appointed Co-Liaison Counsel In In re Pelvic Mesh Litigation
Mr. Grand has been recognized as a leading pelvic mesh attorney. In July 2011, he was named Co-Liaison Counsel in In re Pelvic Mesh Litigation, by the Honorable Carol E. Higbee of the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Atlantic County, who is overseeing the centralized management for all transvaginal mesh or pelvic mesh cases filed in New Jersey. As Co-Liaison Counsel, Mr. Grand will assist in leading the cases against C.R. Bard, Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon, and other defendants. It is expected that the number of cases filed in Atlantic County will grow significantly over the coming months.
U.S. Food And Drug Administration Recommends Against Transvaginal Mesh
On July 13, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) issued a safety communication advising patients and doctors to consider alternative treatments to transvaginal mesh. Additionally, the FDA announced that it will convene to discuss whether transvaginal mesh should be removed from the market. Further, the FDA recommended that women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse refrain from undergoing surgical placement of transvaginal mesh because the implants expose them to an increased risk of sustaining serious and fatal injuries.
In 2008, the FDA issued its first communication regarding the dangers associated with transvaginal mesh, and has since continued to review the safety of the devices. Since that time, Bernstein Liebhard LLP has provided a wealth of consumer information concerning transvaginal mesh on its website, http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com. If you or a loved one underwent a surgical procedure and have been implanted with transvaginal mesh, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other injuries.
