New York, NY (PRWEB) October 26, 2013
Bernstein Liebhard LLP has launched a new transvaginal mesh lawsuit website (http://www.vaginalmeshlawsuitfirm.com/ ) for women seeking legal help after allegedly suffering infection, vaginal scarring and other debilitating injuries caused by pelvic mesh implants. In addition to providing the most up-to-date information about side effects, mesh removal surgery, and products now at the center of fast-developing vaginal mesh lawsuit litigations, the Firm’s recently-unveiled website also provides detailed instruction on how to file a claim.
If you sustained any of the following injuries following implantation of pelvic mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, you may also contact a transvaginal mesh lawyer at the Firm to receive a free and confidential evaluation of your potential case:
“As we continue to hear from women who allegedly sustained the painful and debilitating complications associated with pelvic mesh, the information on our new website will be vital to women seeking to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits against the makers of these products,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to recent court records, at least 30,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. on behalf of women allegedly injured by pelvic mesh implants. Many of these cases are currently pending in separate federal multidistrict litigations underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia over products manufactured by C.R. Bard Inc., American Medical Systems Inc., the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Ethicon Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., and other companies. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is currently a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for the following four federal proceedings: American Medical Systems (MDL No. 2325), Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187), and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).
In New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two separate consolidated litigations established for lawsuits that allege injuries caused by pelvic mesh manufactured by Ethicon and C.R. Bard Inc. He was also an active member of the trial team in the Ethicon proceeding’s first trial, which concluded in March with an $11 million damage award to the Plaintiff. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued its first official vaginal mesh side effects warning in 2008, citing mesh erosion, organ damage, chronic infections and shrinkage as the most commonly reported transvaginal mesh complications.* At the time, the frequency for these injuries to occur was classified as “rare,” a stance the agency upgraded to “not rare” in 2011 after the number of FDA-filed complaint reports dramatically increased over a three-year period.
If you experienced pain during sexual intercourse, chronic infection, vaginal scarring or another injury after receiving a transvaginal mesh implant, you may be eligible to collect compensation for lost wages, out-of-pocket medical expenses, and other damages.
