Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that nearly 9,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits are pending against C.R. Bard in The Southern District of West Virginia, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee. All of the complaints similarly allege that the company’s surgical mesh products used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence caused recipients to suffer mesh erosion, chronic pain, scarring, infections, organ damage, and other serious vaginal mesh complications. The lawsuits further allege that these devices were defectively designed and manufactured, and that premarket testing of the products was not adequate to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
According to court records, nearly 60,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits that make similar allegations have been filed in the Southern District of West Virginia against a number of medical device manufacturers. Mr. Grand is also a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).
Mr. Grand is also serving as 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 suffered vaginal mesh complications related to the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
Women who were allegedly harmed by transvaginal mesh may be entitled to compensation for the financial, physical and emotional damages related to their vaginal mesh complications.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP represents the victims of defective drugs and medical devices on a contingency-fee basis, and our clients are never expected to pay attorneys fees unless their case results in a successful recovery on their behalf.
