MANASQUAN, N.J., May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fair Rate Funding, a leader in TV mesh lawsuit funding, reports that a state-court jury in Delaware found Thursday that Boston Scientific's Pinnacle and Advantage Fit inserts, designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) in women, were defectively designed and that company executives hid the design flaws from the plaintiff, Deborah Barba.
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). Literally tens of thousands of patients who were implanted with the product from different manufacturers suffered complications such as bleeding, pain, inability to have sex, and infection among others. Reports of the product "eroding" into other organs often requires a revision surgery as a remedy. Unfortunately, these revisions have not yielded consistent results.
Barba, a 51 year old, alleged that the inserts eroded after they were implanted leaving her in constant pain and unable to have intercourse. The jury also found Boston Scientific committed fraud by failing to alert doctors of potential complications. The $100 million award includes a $75 million punitive damages award. The verdict is the largest against this defendant to date.
Boston Scientific, based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, recently agreed to pay $119 million to resolve approximately 3,000 lawsuits alleging similar facts and circumstances.
"Plaintiffs should be encouraged by the Barba Verdict," said Paul Coppola, President of Fair Rate Funding, a company which specializes in advancing cash to plaintiffs prior to settlement. "As more verdicts come in at these levels, more pressure will be placed on mesh manufacturers to come up with a settlement package that makes sense."
"Many of these woman are not out to get rich from the settlement, they simply want their lives back," Coppola continued. "The Courts aim to help these people, but unfortunately, waiting is part of the game."
