MANASQUAN, N.J., Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fair Rate Funding, a leader in TV mesh lawsuit funding, reports another jury verdict in favor of mesh manufacturers in the widely publicized on going transvaginal mesh litigation venued throughout the United States. On Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016, a Missouri jury found in favor of defendants C.R. Bard and Boston Scientific. The jury found that the pelvic mesh product, used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, was not defective as it pertained to the treatment of Eve Sherrer. The case was tried in Kansas City and lasted 40 days and was the first trial to involve two mesh manufacturers in the same case.
Eve Sherrer was implanted with both the Solyx mesh from Boston Scientific and the Align mesh product manufactured by C.R. Bard. Her doctor used the product to treat her incontinence.
At trial, she sought to convince the jury that the product was designed defectively and that Bard and Boston Scientific failed to adequately warn her physicians of the dangers involved with mesh type pelvic implants. The jury was unable to reach that conclusion, voting 10-12 in favor of both defendants.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Number in the Tens of Thousands
Transvaginal mesh, also known as TV mesh or pelvic mesh, are medical products typically used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Tens of thousands of patients who were implanted with the product from a host of different manufacturers suffered complications from their use. These complications include bleeding, pain, inability to have sex, infection and other severe and permanent medical conditions. Reports of the product "eroding" into other organs often requires a revision surgery as a remedy and the surgery has historically only been marginally successful.
There are approximately 70,000 pelvic mesh lawsuits pending in the MDL (multi-district-litigation) in Federal Court, including more than 14,000 Boston Scientific mesh lawsuits, 22,000 Ethicon mesh lawsuits, 1,750 Coloplast mesh lawsuits and others.
"This verdict is a departure from the verdicts we have recently seen holding mesh manufacturers responsible," said Paul Coppola, President of transvaginal mesh lawsuit funding company, Fair Rate Funding, a company which specializes in advancing cash to plaintiffs prior to settlement. "Although the verdict may be discouraging, it is important to remember the plaintiff verdicts as well. There will be other trials and other attempts to find justice."
