Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs is pleased to announce that Partner
Erin Copeland recently helped secure a substantial verdict on behalf of victims who
suffered damages following implantation of transvaginal mesh. The verdict,
awarded by a Miami jury, concerned four women who were implanted with
Boston Scientific Corporation's Pinnacle device for pelvic organ prolapse.
Attorney Copeland, who manages the firm's transvaginal mesh litigation
practice, was one of the lead lawyers in the case.
Thanks in part to Attorney Copeland's extensive experience representing
victims harmed by dangerous products, each of the four victims will receive
the compensation they deserve. The award will help compensate the women
for their injuries and losses.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The substantial Florida verdict came one week prior to another federal
trial verdict involving victims harmed by Boston Scientific's transvaginal
mesh products. That case resulted in an significant verdict for four women
injured by the company's Obtryx device, which is used to treat stress
According to legal experts, the two cases may foreshadow larger jury awards
in future transvaginal lawsuits. Not only is this because it shows a willingness
of juries to side with victims, but also because large verdicts put pressure
on companies to increase settlement offers. As Attorney Copeland states in a
recent article, these cases "absolutely send the message" to companies that
settlements must be significant.
Our firm is proud of the results Partner Copeland has helped secure, and
we know that her experience and tireless work ethic continue to be a driving
force behind our firm's ability to continually obtain the results
our clients need. You can find more information about
