(PRWEB) February 15, 2015
Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) are moving forward steadily in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, where they have been consolidated in two separate litigations, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.
Case Lists in both the proceedings, which involve products from C.R. Bard Inc. and the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Ethicon, were updated on February 7th to reflect the addition of several new lawsuits alleging chronic pain, pain during sexual intercourse and other complications allegedly caused by the company’s pelvic implants. In the Ethicon proceeding, court documents show 7,622 claims filed, and 1,667 in the C.R. Bard docket. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
“We are pleased to see continued progress in both New Jersey litigations involving transvaginal mesh, as our attorneys have a number of cases filed there against C.R. Bard and Ethicon Inc. We are actively filing lawsuits on behalf of women who received implants from these companies, as well as a number of others,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices including transvaginal mesh. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case reviews to women who were allegedly injured by products manufactured by C.R. Bard, Ethicon, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific Corp.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
In recent years, court documents show that C.R. Bard and Ethicon mesh lawsuits have steadily moved forward in New Jersey’s Bergen County after being filed by women who sustained injuries allegedly due to use of their products. Women in these cases accuse mesh manufacturers of failing to warn about risks associated with their pelvic implants, which may persist even after sometimes numerous removal surgeries.
Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is currently serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both the C.R. Bard and Ethicon litigations in New Jersey, the latter of which he also was a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team in a case that concluded in March 2013. The plaintiff in that transvaginal mesh lawsuit was injured by a Gynecare Prolift implant she received, and was awarded $11 million in damages.
Lawsuits against C.R. Bard and Ethicon have also been filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, where a number of additional federal multidistrict litigations (MDL) are currently underway and together include more than 70,000. In addition to those involving C.R. Bard and Ethicon, claims against American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific Corp., and other manufacturers have also been centralized in the jurisdiction.
In addition to his work in the New Jersey litigations, Mr. Grand is an active Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee member in all seven of the following West Virginia mesh proceedings: In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In Re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2187; Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2387; In Re: Cook Medical, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2440; and In Re: Neomedic Pelvic Repair
