St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
The Ethicon multidistrict litigation (MDL), which is being heard in a West Virginia federal court, continues to make significant progress early in this new year as the court prepares for the first bellwether trial in February. As a personal injury litigation firm that provides legal counsel to those who have been harmed by defective medical devices, Carey Danis & Lowe is encouraged by the news that the first bellwether trial in the Ethicon MDL will begin on February 10, 2014.
According to court documents, the Ethicon MDL bellwether process begins with a case that involves the plaintiff, Carolyn Lewis. The plaintiff’s transvaginal mesh lawsuit will be the first to be heard in federal court, and is Lewis, et al. v. Johnson & Johnson, et al., 2:12-cv-04301. Lewis’s case has been chosen by both parties and the presiding judge, Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin, for the bellwether process as it is deemed representative of the over 13,000 cases filed in the Ethicon MDL.
The Ethicon MDL is In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL no. 2327 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
As a national law firm providing legal services in personal injury cases, including those involving defective transvaginal mesh products, Carey Danis & Lowe will closely watch the Ethicon MDL bellwether trial, as the result of the Lewis case will have an important impact on state and federal cases.
Carey Danis & Lowe is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to those individuals who believe that their injuries stem from a defective mesh implant. Carey Danis & Lowe invites injured parties to explore available legal options with the assistance of one of their attorneys.
As the law firm of Carey Danis & Lowe strives to provide both legal and medical counseling services, part of the Carey Danis & Lowe team is a group of nurses and medical professionals available to answer the pressing questions of women concerned about transvaginal mesh and patient health and safety.
