Transvaginal Mesh Latest Settlement News: Cases Continue to Drag On in the Courts, as Boston Scientific Wins First Mesh Trial for Defendant's, says Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding

With AMS the only major manufacturer settling a portion of their cases, the Global Settlement expected last year -as reported by Bloomberg News- has yet to come to fruition, as many women victims continue to wait for justice.

CHARLESTON, W.Va., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that cases are continuing to rise in Transvaginal Mesh trials across the U.S. It is estimated that over 100K women a year go through Pelvic Mesh or Vaginal Mesh surgeries and operations and many of these cases have led to over 50K lawsuits being filed to date and possibly 100K claims when the litigation is finally resolved. While some women have been successful in their trials, and while various settlements have occurred, defendants such as Boston Scientific are also starting to win cases to protect their company reputation. Legal-Bay is at the forefront of following these cases and assisting plaintiffs who are in need of a lawsuit cash advance prior to settling her case; as well as putting women in touch with a top transvaginal mesh lawyer or mesh law firm if a client is not yet represented. In order to receive an immediate cash advance, a lawyer must be retained.

Boston Scientific was able to defend its product, the Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit implant in a case where plaintiff Diane Albright accused the company of a defective device and construction. On July 29th the verdict was in favor of the defendant. Mesh Medical Device News Desk reported, "There are currently 12,804 similar cases filed in federal court in Charleston, West Virginia and almost 63,000 product liability lawsuits filed in the same federal court against six other manufacturers." Transvaginal Mesh cases arise from several complications such as; mesh erosion or protrusions into the vagina, bladder, intestines, and uterus, sexual intercourse pain for both partners, internal bleeding or infections, painful urination, POP and SUI symptoms, punctured bladder or bowels, scar tissue, and lower abdomen pain.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the state of the Transvaginal Mesh Litigation, "Unfortunately the Bloomberg Report of a Global Settlement in 2013 has not occurred as of yet, however our contacts close to the litigation have informed us that major settlements are on the horizon with several of the manufacturers. However, due to complexity of each product and case, the average value or settlement values of each case remain in question. Many of our clients continue to seek the needed lawsuit funding in order to pay bills until their cases are settled, as payments do not look to occur in most litigations until 2015 at the earliest now."

Endo's American Medical Systems Inc. is one manufacturer who settled approximately 20K claims in May of 2014, however the average mesh settlement value of those cases was less than $50K per case. Endo/AMS is still facing litigation for 23K open claims. It has not been fully determined the severity of the already settled cases; however industry experts believe that many law firms and plaintiffs are holding out for much more than $50K per case where mesh erosion and a revision has occurred. Other manufacturers that are involved in allegations, claims, and lawsuits that Legal-Bay is avidly assisting plaintiffs are: American Medical Systems Inc., Boston Scientific Inc., C.R. Bard Inc., Caldera Inc., Coloplast Inc., Johnson & Johnson Inc., J&J, Gynecare, Mentor Inc, and many more.
