Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 40,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the various pelvic mesh litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims similarly allege that pelvic mesh products manufactured by these companies caused plaintiffs to suffer debilitating transvaginal mesh complications, and accuse the defendants of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding their risk. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, and Ethicon.
Mr. Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in two multicounty litigations underway in New Jersey Superior Court for transvaginal mesh lawsuits involving products marketed by C.R. Bard and Ethicon. He was also a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team on the first Ethicon trial in that proceeding, which ended in March with a jury awarding $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who was harmed by the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
