We will continue to file serious personal injury claims against Ethicon, Boston Scientific and Coloplast across the country and jointly pursue these cases vigorously. ” – Dr Greg Vigna
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, USA, Oct. 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com / – On October 19, 2021, the New Jersey State Court’s Pelvic Mesh Gynecare list of cases included the names of 4,500 women with injuries caused by Ethicon’s polypropylene transvaginal. mesh devices used for the surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse and polypropylene mid-urethral slings.
Greg Vigna, MD, JD, National Product Liability Attorney, Practicing Physician, and Certified Life Care Planner Says, âInitially, I thought the New Jersey State Court Consolidated Litigation would have seen a sharp decline in the number. active cases, as we observed in the Massachusetts State litigation with Boston Scientific. It doesn’t seem to be happening. We have largely avoided this traffic jam and have at least a dozen cases filed across the country involving pudendal and obturator neuralgia caused by Prolift and TVT-O. We continue to assess newly injured women with symptoms of pudendal and obturator neuralgia caused by TVT-O and TVT Abbrevo used for stress urinary incontinence as well as Ethicon’s Prolift, TVT-O and TVT Abbrevo, because polypropylene arms degrade into muscles causing compression of adjacent nerves by traction and compression.
Dr Vigna adds, âOur team includes Martin Baughman’s pharmaceutical injury lawyer Ben Martin, whose firm this year adjudicated ten medical device cases across the country over a six-month period. Now, Martin Baughman and his trial teams are preparing for the vaginal mesh litigation against Ethicon, Boston Scientific and Coloplast. These are cases of serious injuries involving pudendal neuralgia and other nerve damage. We will continue to file complaints against Ethicon, Boston Scientific and Coloplast across the country. Our case representation criteria are women with symptoms of pudendal, obturator and ilio-inguinal neuralgia caused by a vaginal mesh used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence through the use of polypropylene strips.
Dr Vigna continues, âWe have dozens of pudendal neuralgia cases filed across the country with test parameters in 2022-2023. This includes ten pointers that were selected in the consolidated litigation against Boston Scientific in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Middlesex Superior Court. Some came to us from other companies after rejecting a settlement offer.
Dr Vigna concludes, “There is nothing that can be done to bring a case to the forefront in the New Jersey State Court Ethicon litigation, but it is clear that women have seen the benefit.” to be with a company filing cases across the country for the exact injuries they sustained from TVT-O and Prolift. My decision in 2018 to entrust Martin Baughman with the economic future of the women I represent was the right one because the firm is a trial firm. We will continue to file serious personal injury claims against Ethicon, Boston Scientific and Coloplast across the country and jointly pursue these cases vigorously. ”
