Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in these four federal pelvic mesh litigations. According to court documents, all of the transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in these litigations allege the manufacturers were negligent in designing their pelvic mesh products, and failed to warn patients about the risk for serious vaginal mesh complications.
Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel for hundreds of C.R. Bard and Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in consolidated litigations underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10, and In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10) In March, the Ethicon litigation’s first trial concluded with an award of more than $11 million, including punitive damages, to the Plaintiff. Mr. Grand was a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey)
