The Vaginal Mesh Helpline is here to offer support. a vaginal mesh lawyer, a vaginal mesh doctor and the latest news and updates on the Vaginal mesh lawsuits. The vaginal mesh goes under many different names including: Vaginal mesh, bladder slings, TVT mesh, Vaginal mesh slings, prolapse mesh, incontinence mesh, Surgical mesh, pelvic mesh and all Prolene mesh products. Mesh products of all types have been causing severe injuries in women.
Although there has been no official recall of mesh products Johnson & Johnson and C.R. Bard have pulled a number of their vaginal mesh products off the market. Thousands of women are living with painful complications. Johnson & Johnson, American medical, Boston Scientific, Bard, Coloplast, Mentor and other Prolene mesh manufacturers face more than 12,000 federal lawsuits, with approximately 4,000 more pending in state courts.
Because these transvaginal lawsuits were filed across in the 1000′s and many of the mesh complications have resulted in the same allegations related to these pelvic, surgical and vaginal mesh products, a panel of judges has transferred several thousand cases filed in various federal courts to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia under Chief Judge Joseph R. Goodwin for trial and litigation.
The cases have been placed into specific labeled MDL groups or multidistrict litigations (MDL). These involve similar claims against common victims. Transferring this huge volume of mass torts to a single court under one judge helps the federal court system process them more easily.
Judge Goodwin, has been assigned to manage these more than 12,000 cases involving the following companies:
- MDL – 2187, IN RE: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic RepairSystem Products Liability Litigation 1,956
- MDL – 2325, IN RE: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation 3,974
- MDL – 2326 IN RE: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation 2,317
- MDL – 2327 IN RE: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation 3,798
