Vaginal Mesh Litigation

At Clark, Love & Hutson, we are committed to aggressively fighting for compensation for women who have suffered deep physical and emotional pain due to the corporate greed of medical device manufacturers. These companies cut corners, sidestepping costly testing that would have saved thousands of women from complications suffered after the devices were fast-tracked for market by means of a loophole in the law.

We are leaders in vaginal mesh litigation. With our firm on executive and steering committees of the four major multidistrict litigation cases underway, we are at the forefront of the battle on behalf of women.

If you have suffered pain or have lost a loved one as a result of vaginal mesh or sling product complications, contact us today. We are prepared to stand beside you through the journey to achieving justice.

To speak with a member of our team, call us today at 888-529-5222. You will be provided the option to speak with a female vaginal mesh lawyer, and all information will be confidential.

These mesh and sling products were fast-tracked to market by manufacturers, such as Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp., bypassing important testing and safety requirements through the 510(k) process. This path to market allows products similar to ones already on the market to piggyback on those products' testing, skipping otherwise mandatory steps in the FDA approval process. Because the mesh products were based on designs similar to hernia meshes already being used, the manufacturers began marketing and distributing the products before they took the time to research the possible complications that could be caused.

It wasn't until the FDA demanded that manufacturers pay for costly testing that any products were recalled from the market. In June 2012, Johnson & Johnson recalled three of its major mesh products, asking that the fourth be allowed on the market with an updated label. These products include Gynecare TVT Secur System, Gynecare Prosima Pelvic Floor Repair System, Gynecare Prolift Pelvic Floor Repair System and Gynecare Prolift+M Pelvic Floor Repair System.

In February 2012, multidistrict litigation cases against the mesh manufacturers began. This legal process streamlines hundreds of individual claims against the companies. The three main lawsuits include American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325), Boston Scientific Corp. (MDL No. 2326), Ethicon Inc./Johnson & Johnson (MDL No. 2327) and C.R. Bard (MDL No. 2187).
