The vaginal mesh bellwether trials are proceeding with 2 positive settlements that will set the tone for expectations of future vaginal mesh lawsuit settlements. Vaginal mesh lawyers applaud jury verdicts in favor of the injured women.
A jury has decided for the vaginal mesh victim in the first of over 4,550 lawsuits in the multidistrict C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2187). Donna Cisson, who suffered severe injuries after the implantation of Bard’s Avaulta Plus Posterior BioSynthetic Support System, was awarded $250,000 in compensatory damages plus $1.75 million in punitive damages.
A Bakersfield woman was awarded a Vaginal Mesh Claim Jury verdict of approx $5.5 million dollars. The woman, Christine Scott, sued the manufactures of surgical mesh C.R. Bard Inc. due to side effects caused by vaginal mesh. The woman was awarded $5 million dollars for pain and suffering after 9 different surguries were apparently needed to correct her problems. The woman's husband was also awarded $500,000 for his loss of intimacy.
On Feb. 25, 2013, a New Jersey jury awarded $3.35 million to a South Dakota woman who had to undergo more than a dozen surgeries to repair damage caused a vaginal mesh implant manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit.
As we can see there is a trend here. Jury's are outraged at the neglignce of these manufacturers and are siding with the injured victims. There are thousands of women with a implanted mesh. Many are just starting to realize their complications are from a mesh.
Many states have reached the statute of limitations cut off date on July 13th 2013. However, we have attorneys that are still accepting mesh lawsuits from all states. You are encouraged to file your vaginal mesh lawsuit immediately.

Injury Lawyer Network Stryker Metal Component hip replacement lawyers are accepting faulty recalled hip replacement cases for nationwide stryker hip replacement lawsuits.
Stryker Hip replacement lawyers are accepting clients for the the Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and the Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant. Stryker recalled both of these products on July 4, 2012 because the metal of the neck and stem can corrode, releasing toxic metal ions that can damage tissue and bones around the hip implant. This can cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis from chromium and cobalt), tissue death (necrosis), bone damage, pseudotumers, gait issues, and other serious problems. Revision surgery (to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip product) may be required.
Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II systems include several neck and stem components. The systems were designed to give surgeons greater flexibility by offering them more anatomically correct implant components that could be custom-fitted to patients.
Styker Orthopaedics has announced a recall of the ABG II modular-neck stem hip implant. Metal-on-metal parts of the device can corrode, shed toxic nano-particles into the body, and cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis), pseudotumors, and and other severe complications requiring revision surgeries.
Stryker ABG II Hip Implant Lawsuit
The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem and The Stryker Rejuvinate
The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem and Stryker rejuvinate is a new type of multi-piece hip replacement system. When it was approved, the company claimed that its many interchangeable parts made it ideal for matching each patient’s unique biomechanics.
Although the Stryker ABG II is technically a plastic-on-ceramic hip implant, the device has a unique neck/stem junction that is a metal-on-metal design. Like other metal-on-metal hip implants (including the DePuy ASR, which was recalled in 2010), the Stryker ABG II was fast-tracked through the FDA’s approval process via the 510(k) system. The FDA allows manufacturers to avoid conducting long-term safety studies of new devices so long as they are “substantially similar” to existing devices.
Stryker ABG II Recall and Stryker Rejuvinate Recall
Stryker first warned orthopedic surgeons about the risks of the ABG II hip implant in an Urgent Field Safety Notice that was sent in May 2012. The warning advised doctors to be aware of the following severe side effects associated with the ABG II hip implant:
- Excessive corrosion at the neck joint, which could shed toxic nano-particles into the patient’s body
- Pain, inflammation, tissue damage, and swelling caused by toxic metal nano-particles
- Muscle injury, Pseudotumors
- Loosening of the metal implant, separating from the bone
- Osteolysis (dissolving bone loss) caused by metal nano-particles
Additonal Complications Include:
- Chronic pain in the hip joint
- Inflammation, swelling
- Less walking ability, changes in gait
- Metallosis (metal poisoning)
- Corrosion of the hip implant
- Tissue damage or death (necrosis)
- Bone loss in the hip
- Dislocation of the implant, when the metal component detaches from the hip.
The Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant
The new Stryker Hip Replacements have caused the need for revision surgeries and chromium and cobalt toxicity from the metal components.
In July 2012, Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems from the market. The products were recalled due to reports of fretting and corrosion. According to some reports, the FDA received two adverse events linked to the recalled devices, including one in which the device was removed.
The DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Replacement has also been the focus of massive lawsuits for the same reasons. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio, MDL No. 2197), including the 2010 DePuy hip recall of 93,000 ASR XL metal-on-metal bearings hip replacement systems is currently underway.
Seniors are at an extremely high risk due to muscle weakness in gemneral and slow recuperation. If you a loved on or some one you care for has been implanted with one of thes Stryker recalled hip implants and has the complications listed above they must:
