St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 07, 2013 -- Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers believe that settlement discussions purported to be underway in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia involving five transvaginal mesh manufacturers could have the potential to accelerate the legal process for all parties, and most especially for individuals who claim injury from mesh devices. Furthermore, these settlement discussions could have a ripple effect in regards to the future handling of transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
As a national law firm providing legal counsel to victims of defective medical devices, Carey Danis & Lowe has a vested interest in seeing how the settlement discussions pan out, and if they do, how the settlement itself will be structured, especially in light of how many lawsuits are targeted at the five mesh manufacturers.
According to Bloomberg, there are over 30,000 lawsuits pending in the five multidistrict litigations (MDLs) in the federal court in West Virginia.*
The settlement discussions involve lawsuits that have been consolidated into a federal court in West Virginia. The cases are In Re: C. R. Bard Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2187; In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2325; In Re: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2326; In Re: Coloplast Corp., Pelvic Repair Support Systems Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2387; and In Re: Cook Medical, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2440.
According to the team of transvaginal mesh lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe, though settlement discussions could eliminate the bellwether trial process, which, although useful, sometimes has a protracted pretrial time line, such discussions will not resolve cases immediately. Due to the sheer number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits consolidated in the West Virginia federal court, it is important for plaintiffs to wait patiently for justice and resolution to run its course.
The St. Louis class action attorneys at Carey Danis & Lowe will continue to closely follow the proceedings and discussions in West Virginia in order to keep abreast of the latest information.
