New York, New York (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits http://www.injurybeacon.com/transvaginal-mesh/) filed against C.R. Bard, Inc. continue to move forward in the 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 August 14th, the Court has established new stipulated evidence preservation protocols for biomaterials evidence that requires special handling, division, storage and preservation. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)
“We are pleased with the progress of this litigation, as we are representing hundreds of women who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to products manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc. and others,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to women who were allegedly harmed by pelvic devices manufactured by C.R. Bard, as well as American Medical Systems, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.
Transvaginal Mesh Litigation
C.R. Bard is currently named a defendant in more than 9,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the complaints similarly allege that C.R. Bard failed to subject its transvaginal mesh devices to appropriate testing in order to ensure their safety and effectiveness. The lawsuits further claim that the company’s products caused recipients to suffer serious and debilitating vaginal mesh complications, including chronic pain, mesh erosion, scarring and organ damage. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the federal C.R. Bard litigation.
Mr. Grand is also serving on the Plaintiffs' Steering Committees in a number of other consolidated proceedings underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; and In re: Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327.
In addition, Mr. Grand was appointed Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations that were established in New Jersey's Atlantic County Superior Court for vaginal mesh lawsuits filed against C.R. Bard and Ethicon. He was also a member of the trial team for the proceedings' first Ethicon mesh trial. That case ended in March 2013, after a woman injured by a Gynecare Prolift device was awarded more than $11 million in damages. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
