ATLANTA, June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that in the first verdict against Boston Scientific since the $119MM settlement, the company was ordered to pay $100 million to a Delaware woman. The woman plaintiff claimed the vaginal mesh inserts eroded after being implanted, leaving her in constant pain and unable to have sexual intercourse. The $100 million verdict came just after Boston Scientific Corporation agreed to settle approximately 3,000 cases for $119 million. This latest verdict was the biggest yet against Boston Scientific. According to Bloomberg News, a state court jury in Delaware found that Boston Scientific's Pinnacle and Advantage Fit inserts were defectively designed and that executives in the company hid the flaws from the patient. Also according to Bloomberg, the jurors also found Boston Scientific engaged in fraud due to their failure in alerting doctors of the faulty devices' design.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent verdict against Boston Scientific Corp., "The jury verdict in this case sends a loud message to mesh manufacturers that continue to attempt to defend these cases. With yet another large verdict loss for the defendants, we expect that many of the manufacturers will continue to settle the rest of their cases as quickly as possible. Regardless, we urge women who are still having complications from transvaginal mesh implants to contact us so we can provide them with a free legal consultation with an attorney in our network."
