Law Firms Remaining in TVM Litigation
Mesh Medical Device News Desk, April 18, 2017 ~ Many of the large Mass Tort law firms are no longer taking transvaginal mesh cases (TVM).
While many law firms are pursuing the coated hernia mesh cases, fewer are remaining in transvaginal mesh litigation.
Litigated since the early 2000’s, TVM has gone through many changes, from forming a mass tort and MDL in Charleston, WV to a few bellwether cases to test legal theories. Even fewer settlements have been offered.
To date, four cases that have gone through trial have settled after exhausting the appeals process. See the MND story here.
Though the following list is not complete, it represents the law firms that remain in transvaginal mesh litigation.
Please let us know if your firm is continuing to take these cases.
Many are not but continue to work to settle the cases they have.
