New York, New York (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/ ) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured by pelvic mesh products manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc. and Ethicon, Inc. continue to move forward in multicounty litigations underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the litigations’ next Case Management Conference will be convened on Thursday, March 13, at 10:00 a.m. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
“Our Firm is representing hundreds of women in vaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in these and other proceedings. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to evaluate legal claims on behalf of women who suffered mesh erosion, chronic pain, organ damage, and other serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to pelvic mesh devices marketed by C.R. Bard, Ethicon and other companies.
Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 980 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against C.R. Bard n the litigation underway in Atlantic County Superior Court, while Ethicon is named in more than 4,700 claims. All of the lawsuits pending in the proceedings similarly allege that transvaginal mesh products marketed by the defendants were defectively designed and manufactured, and caused recipients to suffer painful and debilitating vaginal mesh complications.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both pelvic mesh litigations underway in New Jersey. He also served on the Plaintiff’s trial team for the first Ethicon trial in that proceeding, which ended in March 2013 with a jury awarding $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who was harmed by the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10)
Court records also indicate that more than 40,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in a number of federal multidistrict litigations now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. Mr. Grand is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in federal litigations involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187), and In re: Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327). More than 40,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the litigations now underway in West Virginia.
