(PRWEB) June 21, 2013
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a law firm that represents hundreds of transvaginal mesh claimants, is encouraged by a Bloomberg news article* reporting that Endo Health Solutions will pay $55 million to an undisclosed number of plaintiffs who have filed lawsuits alleging they suffered serious injuries from the company’s transvaginal mesh products.
Endo Health disclosed the settlement in a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing, according to a June 20 Bloomberg article, "Endo Health Unit Pays $55 Million in Vaginal Mesh Accord." The company did not disclose which or how many transvaginal mesh lawsuits will be dropped as a result of its $55 million payout, but Bloomberg reports that the settlement resolves claims filed by a small group of plaintiffs’ lawyers representing women who filed cases both in federal and state courts. The settlement doesn’t affect the majority of about 5,000 vaginal-mesh suits filed against Endo and its subsidiaries that have been consolidated for pre-trial proceedings (MDL-2325, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia).
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP maintains a page at its Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Center that provides a free informational brochure on transvaginal mesh side effects and how to purse filing a lawsuit.
