Boston Scientific To Pay $100 Million In Pelvic Mesh Case

View all
Kelsey Tucker2 years ago

Boston Scientific was issued a $100 million judgment by a Delaware state jury in a personal injury lawsuit filed over its Pinnacle and Advantage Fit pelvic mesh products.

About the Pelvic Mesh Lawsuit

According to Mass Device, the product used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and female urinary incontinence were defectively designed and that the company executives hid the flaws from plaintiff Deborah Barba.

Last month, Boston Scientific agreed to pay $119 million to settle about 2,970 pelvic mesh lawsuits. This is the first verdict since then. The jury also found that Boston Scientific committed fraud by failing to alert doctors of the devices' faulty design.

Spokeswoman Kelly Leadem said, “We disagree with the jury’s finding and intend to appeal based on the strength of our evidence,” in an email to Bloomberg.

Fred Thompson, the Babra attorney, also said, “The jury spoke loudly and clearly that Boston Scientific’s defective devices injured Mrs. Barba and many other women and they should step and take responsibility for causing that harm.”
