Rockville Centre, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/09/2014 -- Pending transvaginal mesh lawsuits that have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation involving C.R. Bard (In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2187) continue to move through pretrial proceedings with the latest Order dated July 2, 2014 stating that the Court will hear oral arguments on a plaintiffs’ motion to amend a previous pretrial order (Stipulated Evidence Preservation Protocol for Potential Trial Selection Cases, Order No. 121), on Wednesday, July 9. The hearing will take place via telephone before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, where the MDL is being overseen.
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP represents plaintiffs with claims of harm stemming from the implantation of C.R. Bard Avaulta transvaginal mesh devices, which were meant to address symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women who have given birth to children, or are suffering from weakened pelvic muscles as they go through menopause.
“Our firm is pleased to see the legal process move forward so our clients can have their day in court,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “We want to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries, medical expenses and other damages.”
Current court records indicate that there are just over 9,000 lawsuits pending against C.R. Bard, alleging that the company marketed and sold a defective product which caused women to suffer a number of severe adverse side effects including erosion, chronic pain, infections, and scarring.

Bard or another transvaginal mesh manufacturer to visit the firm’s Web site, www.meshinjurylawfirm.com, for valuable, concise information about the dangers of transvaginal mesh, and a no-cost, confidential case evaluation form that will determine if individuals have grounds to seek compensation for injuries.
