June 24, 2015 /prReach/ -- Lawsuitsettlementnews.com reports that the $100 million verdict for a Delaware woman against Boston Scientific Corporation was the first verdict against the company since they agreed to pay $119 million to resolve approximately 3,000 cases over their transvaginal mesh devices.
MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, reports today that Boston Scientific Corporation was ordered to pay $100 million to a Delaware woman in the first verdict against them since the company agreed to pay $119 million to settle approximately 3,000 cases over their transvaginal mesh products. This latest verdict was the largest yet. The woman plaintiff claimed the vaginal mesh inserts eroded in her body after being implanted, leaving her in constant pain and unable to have sexual intercourse. The high $100MM verdict came just after Boston Scientific agreed to settle about 3,000 cases for $119 million. According to Bloomberg News, a state court jury in Delaware found that Boston Scientific's Pinnacle and Advantage Fit inserts were defectively designed, and that executives in the company hid the flaws from the patient. Additionally, according to Bloomberg, the jurors also found Boston Scientific engaged in fraud due to their failure in alerting doctors of the faulty devices' design.
According to an article in Reuters, Boston Scientific still faces over 25,000 mesh claims in federal and state courts throughout the U.S. Thousands of claims against Boston Scientific are still pending, and they've been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL) under U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in the Southern District of West Virginia (Boston Scientific MDL 2326).
