Thousands of women throughout the United States are involved in Multi-District Litigation (MDL) against a number of transvaginal mesh manufacturers. Because they are seeking similar damages against common defendants, a judicial panel transferred a majority of these claims to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia under Chief Judge Joseph R. Goodwin as well as other federal courts. This consolidation into mass torts assists the federal court system in more effectively and efficiently processing the thousands of cases.
You may be entitled to join an ongoing case or establish an MDL if a defective transvaginal mesh device caused you pain and suffering. Contact our seasoned dangerous drug and defective medical device lawyers for more information regarding your transvaginal mesh implants lawsuit.
