Increased awareness of the possible side effects of having a Transvaginal Mesh patch has caused an influx of litigation filed against Boston Scientific right here in the Massachusetts Superior Court. As of May 8th, 2012 over 100 lawsuits have been filed in Middlesex County under the supervision of Judge Diane Kottmyer; these numbers are sure to rise as more and more victims experience the harmful side effects and become aware of the potential impact on their health moving forward.
While litigation continues to be filed in Middlesex County, other litigation has previously been filed throughout the country. It has been documented that thousands of lawsuits have been filed, Boston Scientific being named frequently in the complaint. Boston Scientific is not the only major company facing pending litigation; other major manufacturers of the Transvaginal Mesh Patch such as Bard, Johnson & Johnson and American Medical Systems are all facing similar lawsuits nationwide.
