Transvaginal Mesh Settlements Remain for Injured Women Against Other Manufacturers
As reported earlier, Audet & Partners, LLP recently settled claims brought on behalf of hundreds of women injured after implantation of transvaginal mesh devices manufactured by American Medical Systems (AMS). Similar transvaginal mesh settlements are now being considered by other manufacturers of transvaginal mesh devices.
The parameters of the AMS settlements may lay the groundworks for settlements by other manufacturers of transvaginal mesh including Boston Scientific, CR Bard and others. In particular, the following wide range of criterial in the AMS settlements may be applied in mesh lawsuits against other companies:
