The explanted transvaginal mesh could help plaintiffs win their cases.
(PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits are moving along in the New Jersey state multicounty litigation matter. A May 31 order addressed how to handle evidence in the C.R. Bard lawsuits, specifically focusing on how to preserve and test samples and device components removed from patients. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP maintains a transvaginal mesh informational website, complete with news about the device and a guide on how to file a lawsuit.
Plaintiffs are to obtain the samples from the medical facilities that currently hold them and are to maintain them to keep their integrity, according to court documents in In Re Pelvic Mesh/Bard Litigation, No. L-6339-10 (Superior Court of New Jersey-Law Division, Atlantic County).* This order applies to the first round of bellwether trials in the MCL.
“It is important that this evidence is handled properly,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “The explanted transvaginal mesh could help plaintiffs win their cases.”
The plaintiffs are filing lawsuits alleging that their transvaginal mesh implants have caused them to suffer serious side effects, including erosion, bleeding, pain and infection. The mesh was designed to treat female Stress Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
