The vaginal mesh lawsuits for the Ethicon Inc.’s Gynecare pelvic mesh have been consolidated in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court. These mesh products appear to have been broadly used for urinary incontinence in women. A Case Management Conference was held on May 22nd to discuss issues stemming from the proceeding’s first trial, which concluded in March with an award of more than $11 million for a woman mesh victim. The Vaginal Mesh Helpline is glad to see that the mesh trials are moving along and advises all women to file their Gynecare, Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuit.(In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)
“As the Vaginal Mesh Helpline medical social worker I am happy to see more progress in the vaginal mesh lawsuits. I speak to women on a daily basis implanted with Ethicon vaginal mesh and are suffering from serious, life-changing complications due to these mesh implants.”
