PHILADELPHIA, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, reports today that Boston Scientific Corporation has agreed to pay about $119 million to settle approximately 2,970 cases over its transvaginal mesh products. According to Reuters, Boston Scientific Corp. said the company will put settlement funds into an escrow account by October 1st, and it will also establish a process for claimants to participate in the settlement. However, Boston Scientific Corporation contests liability or any wrongdoing despite its agreement to pay the settlement. Also according to the 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).
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent settlement, "The time is winding down for possible victims of transvaginal mesh injuries to file claims. The judge is trying to resolve all the existing claims as quickly as possible, and once the majority of settlements are announced it will be much harder to file a claim. Today's announcement is important not only for existing claims, but puts notice to patients who have not yet filed claims to do so immediately if they have had injuries which required a revision surgery, or if they are still in need of a revision surgery."

Lawsuit Settlement News urges any women who are having complications with any of the transvaginal mesh products or bladder or pelvic slings that were implanted in the last five years to seek immediate legal consultation to determine if they may have a potential claim and are eligible for compensation. Time may be limited to do so as more manufacturers settle the claims against them. Settlements and jury verdicts in other cases with serious side effects and multiple revision surgeries have netted some plaintiffs settlements in the $500K range. In order to obtain compensation, you must file a timely lawsuit with the assistance of a mesh law firm.
If you, or a loved one, have been injured by a transvaginal mesh device and need lawsuit money or lawsuit help, including finding a TVM law firm, obtaining up to $30K in pre-settlement lawsuit funding, or obtaining surgical funding if you don't currently have insurance, call 877.571.0405.
