Greg Vigna, MD, JD, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, practicing physician, and Certified Life Care Planner discusses next phase of litigation:
“Defendant manufacturers are counter suing implanting physicians, the same physicians that they lied to for two decades, for allegedly malplaced slings and improper patient selection as they are faced with mounting product liability cases that they still claim are the Standard of Care. This is the next stage of litigation as these devices are on a path we hope will lead to their being removed from the market.
“Defendant manufacturers are counter suing implanting physicians… for allegedly malplaced slings and improper patient selection as they are faced with mounting product liability cases…” — Dr. Greg Vigna
Latent injuries will be piling up on Boston Scientific, Ethicon, and Coloplast’s doorstep for the next decade or two and these cases will become as certain as mesothelioma cases. My law firm and my partners are not going anywhere.
Caldera dodged a bullet in the first round of litigation by going Bankrupt during the MDL, and the next round will only take two or three Desara transobturator sling cases for them to leave the market as their Board Members learn to understand their exposure beyond the protections of their ‘Corporate Veil’ for keeping their transobturator slings on the market.
The Vigna Law Group targets the below transobturator (TOT) slings and mini-slings that cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia:
- Ethicon: TVT-O, Abbrevo
- Boston Scientific: Obtryx, Solyx
- Coloplast: Aris, Altis
The Vigna Law Group targets the below retropubic slings that cause ilioinguinal neuralgia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome:
- Boston Scientific: Advantage Fit
- Ethicon: TVT, TVT Exact
- Coloplast: Supris
