CHARLESTON, W.Va., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that cases are continuing to rise in Transvaginal Mesh trials across the U.S. It is estimated that over 100K women a year go through Pelvic Mesh or Vaginal Mesh surgeries and operations and many of these cases have led to over 50K lawsuits being filed to date and possibly 100K claims when the litigation is finally resolved. While some women have been successful in their trials, and while various settlements have occurred, defendants such as Boston Scientific are also starting to win cases to protect their company reputation. Legal-Bay is at the forefront of following these cases and assisting plaintiffs who are in need of a lawsuit cash advance prior to settling her case; as well as putting women in touch with a top transvaginal mesh lawyer or mesh law firm if a client is not yet represented. In order to receive an immediate cash advance, a lawyer must be retained.
Boston Scientific was able to defend its product, the Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit implant in a case where plaintiff Diane Albright accused the company of a defective device and construction. On July 29th the verdict was in favor of the defendant. Mesh Medical Device News Desk reported, "There are currently 12,804 similar cases filed in federal court in Charleston, West Virginia and almost 63,000 product liability lawsuits filed in the same federal court against six other manufacturers." Transvaginal Mesh cases arise from several complications such as; mesh erosion or protrusions into the vagina, bladder, intestines, and uterus, sexual intercourse pain for both partners, internal bleeding or infections, painful urination, POP and SUI symptoms, punctured bladder or bowels, scar tissue, and lower abdomen pain.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the state of the Transvaginal Mesh Litigation, "Unfortunately the Bloomberg Report of a Global Settlement in 2013 has not occurred as of yet, however our contacts close to the litigation have informed us that major settlements are on the horizon with several of the manufacturers. However, due to complexity of each product and case, the average value or settlement values of each case remain in question. Many of our clients continue to seek the needed lawsuit funding in order to pay bills until their cases are settled, as payments do not look to occur in most litigations until 2015 at the earliest now."
Endo's American Medical Systems Inc. is one manufacturer who settled approximately 20K claims in May of 2014, however the average mesh settlement value of those cases was less than $50K per case. Endo/AMS is still facing litigation for 23K open claims. It has not been fully determined the severity of the already settled cases; however industry experts believe that many law firms and plaintiffs are holding out for much more than $50K per case where mesh erosion and a revision has occurred. Other manufacturers that are involved in allegations, claims, and lawsuits that Legal-Bay is avidly assisting plaintiffs are: American Medical Systems Inc., Boston Scientific Inc., C.R. Bard Inc., Caldera Inc., Coloplast Inc., Johnson & Johnson Inc., J&J, Gynecare, Mentor Inc, and many more.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
