Manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceutical companies are putting products on the market that target women. The result is more drugs and devices lawsuits being filed by women.
- Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits,
- Vaginal Sling Lawsuits,
- Yaz blood clot lawyers for Yaz Lawsuits,
- Zofran lawyers For Birth Defect- cleft palate, cleft lip, Hole In the Heart
- Baby powder lawsuit attorneys for ovarian cancer
And many more are flooding our courtrooms
In May of 2013, the American Association of Justice (AAJ) published an article titled Unequal Harm. (http://www.justice.org/cps/rde/xchg/justice/hs.xsl/20936.htm)

These products are injuring one specific group, women.
The vaginal mesh lawsuits may be the largest mass tort lawsuits to date against manufacturers who care more about products then a woman’s health.
There is currently a 2 million dollar settlement reached by a jury for one plaintiff against Bard pharmaceuticals. This may just be the most costly lawsuits for these manufacturers of dangerous drugs and devices to date. We encourage all women to file their vaginal mesh lawsuit immediately.
