New York, New York (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/ ) involving pelvic mesh products manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. continue to move forward in federal multidistrict litigations now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. According to Orders dated March 31, 2014, the Court has allowed additional non-party discovery to move forward. (In Re American Medical Systems, Inc. - MDL No. 2325; In Re Boston Scientific Corp. - MDL No. 2326)
“Our Firm is representing hundreds of women who have filed vaginal mesh lawsuits against American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, and other medical device makers. We are closely monitoring all of the state and federal litigations involving pelvic mesh products, and 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 continues to evaluate vaginal mesh lawsuits on behalf of women who suffered mesh erosion, chronic pain, and organ damage, allegedly due to devices marketed by American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific, as well as C.R. Bard, Inc. and Ethicon, Inc.
Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, American Medical Systems is named in nearly 17,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits that are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia, while Boston Scientific is named in more than 11,000 such claims. All of the lawsuits similarly allege that the companies’ pelvic mesh products used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused thousands of women to suffer permanent and painful vaginal mesh complications.
Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in the federal litigations established for American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh lawsuits. Mr. Grand is also a member of the Committees for two other pelvic mesh litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia for cases involving C.R. Bard and Ethicon. (In Re C.R. Bard, Inc. - MDL No. 2187; In Re Ethicon, Inc. - MDL No. 2327)
Mr. Grand has also been appointed Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations underway in New Jersey Superior Court for transvaginal mesh lawsuits involving products marketed by C.R. Bard and Ethicon. He was also a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team on the first Ethicon trial in that proceeding, which ended in March 2013 with a jury awarding $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who was harmed by the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
Alleged victims of vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages.
