NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that their newly designed Mass Tort Help Center Website to be launched in early 2013 will focus on the many victims of vaginal mesh side effects.
Legal-Bay is a leader in product liability lawsuit funding for Transvaginal Mesh plaintiffs and also DePuy and Stryker Hip Recall Victims. However, Legal-Bay has taken an active role in assisting clients of these cases that need other services that most legal funding companies don't provide. These services include getting plaintiffs much needed surgical funding –or corrective surgery- in order to get healthy; as well as providing them with attorney referrals if they are unsure if they have a valid claim.
Legal-Bay recently announced that they will launch an all-in-one site that will provide an opportunity for Transvaginal Mesh victims to get any assistance they need from the start of their case to the end. Legal-Bay says the Transvaginal Mesh lawsuit news is very complex as there are so many different types of Mesh Manufacturers and different products. Legal-Bay is a plaintiff advocate firm who remains available for victims to find resources or have their questions answered.
Both cases have already had settlement or jury awards indicating that there remains a lot of money that the manufacturers will be paying to settle claims. In a California case, a jury awarded a woman $5mm and her husband $500k for substantial vaginal mesh injuries and loss of intimacy. In Las Vegas, Nevada a DePuy trial was settled for 3 plaintiffs with the average settlement amounts at $200k, although this seems to be the low end of the case value for those cases. However, in both cases victims are urged to act quickly if they haven't found legal representation yet.
"Although our mass tort help center will focus on all mass tort cases that we fund, the focus will clearly be on the vaginal mesh litigations to start. We have received hundreds of applications from women who simply need guidance and assistance to get their lives back on track. Whether they need lawsuit funding for basic living needs, surgical funding to correct the defective mesh, have questions if their specific mesh product is recalled or not, or lastly simply need a lawyer to ascertain if they even have a valid lawsuit, our staff and new site will be there to assist them. Our Firm's dedication to the transvaginal mesh recall is unparalleled in the industry. And our new website will be the first of its kind in the settlement funding industry," said Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay.
Legal-Bay says that there are at least four major manufacturers in the various litigations including, C.R. Bard, Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, American Medical Devices (AMD), and Boston Scientific. Reports in the news state that approximately 70K mesh implants were done annually combined between all the various makers. As one lawyer who is close to the litigation that wants to remain anonymous stated to Legal-Bay, "There are so many potential plaintiffs out there and multiple manufactures and when you add it all up, this litigation could top Vioxx in over $5Bil in overall settlements when it is all said and done."
Legal-Bay knows there are many women out there that need assistance and they remain available to advise them on their various programs. The beauty about their lawsuit funding program is that the lawsuit cash advance is not a lawsuit loan, so no funds are required to be paid back unless the suit is won by the plaintiff.
