Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Coloplast Announces $16 Million Settlement with Several Hundred Plaintiffs, The Rottenstein Law Group LLP Reports
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
According to a March 4, 2014 article published on BloombergBusinessweek.com, Coloplast, the manufacturer of transvaginal mesh devices, has agreed to settle with approximately 400 plaintiffs who have filed lawsuits against the company for alleged injuries suffered after implantation of the devices. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents victims in vaginal mesh lawsuits consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2387) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, before Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, offers insight into vaginal mesh settlement agreements at the firm’s Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Center.
Bloomberg Businessweek reports that Denmark-based Coloplast has agreed to an average payment of $40,000 per claimant, according to sources that are familiar with the agreement. The lawsuits were filed by women who were implanted with the company’s Novasilk-Synthetic Flat Mesh System and the Aris-Transobturator tape; devices used to treat symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP notes that other transvaginal mesh manufacturers are also in the midst of settlement negotiations with the tens of thousands of plaintiffs whose cases are consolidated into six total multidistrict litigations in Judge Goodwin’s court.
Women are filing transvaginal mesh lawsuits alleging they suffered from adverse side effects such as pain and discomfort, in addition to device erosion, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who believe they have suffered from the alleged side effects of their vaginal mesh implants to speak to a qualified transvaginal mesh attorney to learn about vaginal mesh compensation and settlements.
