“We continue to hear from women who’ve sustained horrific injuries, allegedly due to transvaginal mesh devices.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
In July 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that there had been a five-fold increase in reports of serious complications associated with the use of transvaginal mesh. The FDA also modified its previous position on the frequency of such complications, stating in the alert that vaginal mesh injuries associated with pelvic organ prolapse repair were not rare.* Since the FDA advisory, a growing number of women have filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits alleging they experienced serious, painful and life-changing injuries following treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims in four vaginal mesh litigations underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2325”); In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2326); In re: C.R.
