Another medical device harming women is the vaginal mesh. Over 300,000 women have been implanted with a Prolene mesh product for either prolapse or urinary incontinence. Women are suffering and lawsuits have been filed under an MDL or multi district litigation very much like the MDL for the Mirena IUD.

Vaginal Mesh Multi District Lawsuit List Consolidated Under Judge Goodwin in West Virginia

MDL – 2325, IN RE: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2326 IN RE: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2327 IN RE: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2387 IN RE: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation

A multi districrt litigation consolidates massive numbers of nationwide lawsuits under one judge.

If you or a loved one: a friend, mother, sister or loved one has been implanted with a vaginal mesh and is having complications and the doctor is telling them that it is not the mesh they should contact us immediately to speak to a medical social worker and vaginal mesh lawyer.

Two vaginal mesh lawsuits have gone to trial. In March, a New Jersey Superior Court jury weighing claims in that litigation’s first Ethicon bellwether trial ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a recipient of the Gynecare Prolift device. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey) Last July, a jury in California awarded $5.5 million to a woman and her husband in the nation’s first C.R. Bard vaginal mesh trial. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California)
