20 Nov Boston Scientific Loses First Two Federal Vaginal Mesh Trials
The first two federal vaginal mesh trials involving cases against Boston Scientific have both resulted in sizeable verdicts for the plaintiffs, sending a powerful message to both Boston Scientific and the other injured women whose cases against the company are still pending. These vaginal mesh trials include:
- A vaginal mesh injury case litigated in Florida (Enhnayem, et al. v. Boston Scientific Corp., Case No. 2:13-7965) – This case included four women who had been severely injured after using Boston Scientific’s Pelvic Floor Repair kit. Once both sides had presented their arguments, it only took the jury about 4 hours to come back with a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs, which totaled $26.7 million and did not include any punitive damages.
- A vaginal mesh injury case litigated in West Virginia (Tyree, et al. v. Boston Scientific Corp., Case No. 2:12-8633) – This case also included four women as plaintiffs, with these women alleging that they had been severely injured due to their use of Boston Scientific’s Obtryx vaginal mesh devices. After this two-week trial wrapped up, the jury reportedly took only about 6 hours to issue a ruling in favor of the plaintiffs, awarding them $18.5 million total.
Are More Federal Vaginal Mesh Trials against Boston Scientific to Come?
Although Boston Scientific has stated that it intends to fight the verdicts handed down in these recent vaginal mesh trials, the back-to-back similar rulings in these federal cases do not seem to bode well for the manufacturer. In fact, it could end up being the motivation necessary for Boston Scientific to:
- Develop a comprehensive settlement offer
- Try to resolve some of the 23,000 cases the company is facing before they too are put before sympathetic juries in upcoming vaginal mesh trials.
