Legal-Bay LLC of Charleston, WV announced a new lawsuit funding program for plaintiffs with cases proposed for settlement in the American Medical Systems transvaginal mesh litigation.
Endo International, the parent company of American Medical Systems (AMS), agreed in May 2014 to an $830 million settlement of lawsuits over its transvaginal mesh products. Approximately 20,000 women victims had experienced extreme pain, mesh erosion, abdominal pain, mesh protrusion, and pelvic pain due to product defects.
"The average settlement value of the AMS mesh cases is only $40,000. However women with serious injuries are receiving settlement amounts north of $250,000. Our new program will enable us to help these victims at reduced rates. This coincides with our consistent pre-settlement cash advances for clients who have not received a mesh settlement letter yet, which we continue to fund every day," said Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations.
All of Legal-Bay's programs are non-recourse lawsuit cash advances, also known as case funding. None of the programs should be considered to be a lawsuit loan or a pre-settlement loans. More infomation about the AMS funding programs is available online.
Legal-Bay and its investors have agreed to pledge up to $10 million to get transvaginal mesh victims the financial help they need.
Attorneys in the Legal-Bay network are still accepting transvaginal mesh cases although time to file a claim is limited. Women who are having issues with AMS mesh products including Perigee, Apogee, Elevate, SPARC, BioArc, In-Fast Ultra, MiniArc, Monarc and Straight-In meshes are urged to seek a free consultation from a transvaginal mesh lawyer immediately.
