YONKERS, N.Y., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexus Legal Cash, The Lawsuit Funding Company, reports that over 40,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in federal court involving vaginal mesh pelvic repair systems manufactured by multiple medical device companies. While some claims have been settled, a staggering 3,000 Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits a month are still being filed. All told, the total number is estimated to top 100,000 claimants. The four top vaginal manufactures in litigation are: Johnson & Johnson Inc., Ethicon Inc.; Boston Scientific Corp.; American Medical Systems Inc., AMS; and C.R. Bard Inc.
Transvaginal mesh has proven itself to be more harm than good. Of the thousands that have been implanted with with the mesh, an inordinate amount have succumbed to complications arising directly and indirectly form the devices. Some suffer protrusion through the vaginal wall and through the skin. Others suffer from erosion and disintegration of the device. Other risks that have been linked to the defective transvaginal devices include, but are certainly not limited to the following: pelvic pain, infection, bleeding, urinary leakage, pain during sexual intercourse, recurrence of prolapse, organ perforation, poisoning, diminished capacity for activities of daily life.
"The scope and size of this litigation is enormous and has begun winding its way through the courts," noted Nexus Legal Cash President & CEO, Karl A. Minner. "We believe, that the sheer complexity of the litigation and the legal maneuvering will push back actual payment of funds until late in 2014 or 2015."
Regardless of the delays and uncertainty, Nexus Legal Cash continues to be a leader in providing pre-settlement funding to women in need that have filed a claim.
