Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward

Comments (0)

Thousands of woman who were injured and harmed due to transvaginal mesh made by Boston Scientific Corp. received favorable news from the court last week.   The defendant filed a brief requesting that the court dismiss the lawsuit filed by a woman who received the Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit and Advantage Transvaginal Mid-Urethal Sling System.  Boston Scientific argued that her mesh lawsuit was filed too late because it was beyond the California two year statute of limitations.

However, U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin found that there was an issue of fact as to whether she could have discovered a connection between her vaginal mesh complications and her implant within that time frame.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits

This is good news and this case helps set precedent for the other woman also pursuing similar claims.  Boston Scientific has  8,600 vaginal mesh lawsuits now pending against it in the Southern District of West Virginia.  The lawsuits allege that the pelvic mesh used in surgeries has caused serious injuries to the women.  The lawsuits also allege that that the company failed to provide adequate warnings to patients and doctors regarding the risk of serious vaginal mesh complications associated with its products. The first trial in the federal Boston Scientific litigation is scheduled to begin on March 10, 2014. (In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326)
