Victim told Transvaginal Mesh would make her “Feel like a 16-year-old Virgin” September 26, 2017. By Jane Mundy.
Sydney, AU: An Australian transvaginal mesh inquiry underway involves complaints that would make good copy for a vulgar tabloid. One victim testified how she was told the mesh would make her feel like a “16-year-old virgin”. But if it takes sensational accounts such as these to make more women aware of transvaginal mesh side effects, all the better. These women are heroic for sharing such personal details.

Takata Airbag Recalls in China, Dorado Airbag Injury Lawsuit Filed in Nevada

Takata Airbag Recalls in China, Dorado Airbag Injury Lawsuit Filed in Nevada September 26, 2017. By Gordon Gibb.
Las Vegas, NV: The angst over potential airbag failure and the airbag recall involving primary, and some side airbags manufactured by Takata has transferred to China now, with the recent announcement that General Motors and its Chinese joint venture Shanghai GM will recall more than 2.5 million vehicles in China known to have faulty Takata airbags. Earlier, Volkswagen AG announced a recall of 4.86 million vehicles for similar reasons. Whether, or not this will result in an airbag lawsuit akin to litigation that is commonplace in the US remains to be seen – and whether recycled airbags and corresponding airbag injuries will also emerge as a tandem issue.

Burn Pit Lawsuit Shows How Hard it is to Sue Military Contractors

Burn Pit Lawsuit Shows How Hard it is to Sue Military Contractors September 25, 2017. By Anne Wallace.
Baltimore, MD: The US District Court’s dismissal of the multidistrict litigation, In re: KBR, Inc., Burn Pit Litigation is about more than Iraq and Afghanistan burn pits. The exhaustive opinion demonstrates why it is so hard for veterans and their families to sue military contractors when they are hurt because contractors fail to exercise appropriate care in the discharge of their duties. As the nuts and bolts of modern warfare are delegated more frequently to private contractors, this issue is likely to come up again.

Actemra: Failure to Warn

Actemra: Failure to Warn September 22, 2017. By Jane Mundy.
Washington, DC: Given the fact that Actemra is marketed without warning of heart failure, stroke, and other serious injuries like its competitors must do, one would think it is the wonder drug for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Until research and adverse event reports (AERS) got in the way and showed the med was just as likely to cause serious injuries as competing drugs - and given attorneys are investigating these AERS,  Actemra lawsuits may be on the horizon.
