New York, New York (PRWEB) December 14, 2013
As transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuitclaims.com/ ) continue to move forward in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a new Pretrial Order has been issued in the federal proceeding established in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, for claims pending against Boston Scientific Corp. According to the December 11th Order, the Court has denied a Motion to Stay Enforcement of Plaintiffs’ Subpoena filed on behalf of a biomedical materials supplier to Boston Scientific. The Order further directs the company in question to produce the majority of documents sought by plaintiffs no later than January 10, 2014. Any responsive documents located thereafter shall be supplied to Plaintiffs no later than January 20, 2014. (In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326)
“We are representing numerous women in this proceeding who have suffered serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to devices marketed by Boston Scientific. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently representing hundreds of women who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious injuries, allegedly due to transvaginal mesh products marketed by a number of manufacturers. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal Boston Scientific litigation.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that Boston Scientific is facing more than 7,800 transvaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in the litigation underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. The first bellwether trial in the proceeding is scheduled to begin on March 10, 2014. The second bellwether case will go to trial on July 13, 2014. All of the claims pending in the litigation allege that pelvic mesh products marketed by Boston Scientific were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused recipients to suffer serious vaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion and shrinkage, pain, infections, scarring and organ damage.
Boston Scientific is just one of several pelvic mesh manufacturers involved in litigations now underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325), C.R. Bard, Inc. (MDL 2326) and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327). According to court documents, at least 40,000 claims have been filed in the seven proceedings pending in the jurisdiction.
Alleged victims of serious vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injuries.
