New York, NY (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
For women who may have suffered chronic pain, organ perforation, vaginal scarring and other serious complications similar to those alleged in transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/), a new website is now available from the attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard LLP.
The site, which provides detailed information about the complications that have allegedly been associated with pelvic mesh devices, as well as answers to frequently asked questions about the process of filing a claim, serves as a one-stop shop for individuals who received transvaginal mesh implants. Updates related to lawsuits that have already been filed in the U.S. are also readily available on the Firm’s new website, and will continue to be published as the litigation develops.
Given that over 40,000 transvaginal mesh claims are now pending in federal multidistrict litigations (MDL) established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, according to court documents, this information will prove vital to potential claimants.
“As our Firm continues to hear from women who allegedly experienced mesh erosion, organ perforation, infection and other complications stemming from transvaginal mesh, we understand the importance of educating them about the legal process,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices including transvaginal mesh. Right now, the Firm is offering free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who may be eligible to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits following the implantation of pelvic mesh.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Transvaginal mesh belongs to a class of devices designed to treat such conditions as stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women. In recent years, the number of lawsuits over these implants has continued to rise, with thousands of cases now filed in separate federal proceedings underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is actively serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees, in four of these litigations: Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); American Medical Systems (MDL No. 2325); C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187), and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).
In addition to vaginal mesh lawsuits filed at the federal court level, thousands of claims have also been consolidated in a number of state proceedings established in the U.S. Court records show that 4,597 lawsuits involving Ethicon’s line of Gynecare pelvic mesh products have been filed in a litigation established in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, for which Mr. Grand is actively serving as Co-Liaison Counsel. The Firm partner was also a member of the trial team for the proceeding’s first trial in March, which concluded with an $11 million damage award for the plaintiff. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10).
Also underway in Atlantic County Superior Court is a consolidated litigation concerning claims against C.R. Bard, Inc., which now includes more than 900 cases. Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in this proceeding. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
Women who may have experienced mesh erosion, infection, vaginal scarring and other complications are urged to consider seeking compensation for any damages they may have suffered as a result of their alleged pelvic mesh injuries.
