Post-2016: Can injuries caused from TVM devices be considered medical malpractice?

The FDA on April 16, 2019 moved to ban the use of transvaginal devices used in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in the U.S.A.

Malpractice claims against doctors and hospitals along with a defective product claim against a device manufacturer must be considered going forward for new injury cases…”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FDA on April 16, 2019 finally moved to ban the use of transvaginal devices used in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in the U.S.A. to ‘protect the health of thousands of women each year who undergo surgery.' The FDA acted because ‘Boston Scientific and Coloplast have not demonstrated a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness for these devices.' Shamefully, the American Urogynecological Society (AUGS) failed to take this necessary step to protect women, believing physicians should have the ‘ultimate judgment regarding any specific procedure or treatment’ necessary in the care of women.

AUGS failed to act reasonably even after a significant change in the risk classification by the FDA for TVM devices used for POP on January 6, 2017. The FDA changed the risk of POP TVM devices from Class II to Class III which is a high risk device. Since this important FDA change, there remains a strong legal argument that all injuries from transvaginal mesh placement including the Boston Scientific Uphold device and Coloplast devices are medical malpractice as these devices are placed blindly which places women at a substantial and unreasonable risk of acute injuries to the pudendal nerves and obturator nerves and causes pudendal neuralgia and obturator neuralgia over time as the device degrades.

Are the neuromuscular injuries from transobturator (TOT) slings malpractice?

It is clear that transobturator (TOT) slings used for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) will be marching down the path to extinction similar to the devices used for pelvic organ prolapse. TOT slings are placed blindly like the POP devices, placing the obturator and pudendal nerves in peril to acute injuries during placement or over time as the polypropylene device shrinks. The literature is clear; TOTs cause pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome and experts have testified that the occurrence of catastrophic pain syndromes are 10 times more frequent in TOT slings when compared to polypropylene retropubic slings. The risk and magnitude of harm does not support ongoing use of TOT slings and placement of a TOT is arguably medical malpractice.

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and damages expert and his team of national pharmaceutical attorneys are evaluating catastrophic injuries caused by TOT devices and POP devices across the country. Dr. Vigna states, “Malpractice claims against doctors and hospitals along with a defective product claim against a device manufacturer must be considered going forward for new injury cases from TOTs and those caused by TVM POP devices.”

Dr. Vigna adds, “I don’t see TOT slings including Ethicon’s TVT-O, Boston Scientific Solyx and Obtryx, and Coloplast Aris and Altis being on the market in five years as doctors are finally pulled into the vaginal mesh debacle. TOTs provide no added benefit in efficacy when compare to retropubic slings and bring a 10x risk of catastrophic pain syndromes that destroy the lives of injured women.”

Lawyer Gary Mazin Wins Crucial Appeal in Landmark Car Accident Case

Ontario personal injury lawyer Gary Mazin won a significant appeal Friday, June 21 in Mary Shuttleworth v. Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ontario injury lawyer Gary Mazin secured a notable victory for a client who was catastrophically injured in a car accident seven years ago with a successful appeal on June 21, 2019. The Court of Appeal for Ontario upheld the landmark decision of Mary Shuttleworth v. LAT, an appeal that had found that the client’s injuries did meet the 55% threshold for catastrophic injuries in Ontario. This dismisses the LAT’s appeal of the Divisional Court’s assertion that LAT’s decision-making process in Mazin’s client’s case created a reasonable apprehension of lack of independence. The client will now be able to receive up to $1 million in damages for her severe head and back injuries sustained in a head-on collision in 2012.

In April 2017, an adjudicator of the License Appeal Tribunal (LAT), which is part of the Safety, Licensing Appeals and Standards Tribunal of Ontario (SLASTO), a government body of tribunals that resolves disputes concerning compensation claims, held that Mazin’s client’s injuries were at 51%, short of the 55% impairment threshold required to qualify as catastrophic.
While that was a disappointing blow to Mazin’s client’s case, as she was not able to recover the compensation she deserved, it certainly was not the end.

A turning point occurred when Gary Mazin got an anonymous tip in the mail. This note from a whistleblower claimed that the LAT adjudicator did not make a decision independently, as required by law. The adjudicator initially sided with Mazin’s client, but she was pressured to rule in favor of the insurance company. Her initial finding was changed by the executive chair of SLASTO.

Mazin filed an access request and found that LAT had a process imposed where the legal department would send the LAT executive chair certain rulings to review. Emails confirmed that the chair had reviewed Mazin’s client’s decision, and a LAT adjudicator told the executive director that she was “revising it.”

Gary Mazin then brought an application for judicial review of the ruling, arguing that it was not made by an independent decision-maker. The Divisional Court held that a peer-review process alone did not create a lack of independence. The Divisional Court decision was appealed in Shuttleworth v. LAT in June 2018, when it was found that the LAT had not handled the case consistently in regard to its decisions being independent. Because of that ruling, Mazin’s client received a second review of her injuries with a different LAT adjudicator. On Friday, the Court of Appeal for Ontario upheld Mary Shuttleworth v. LAT decision, proving that she was catastrophically injured.

The entire team at Mazin & Associates are very pleased with the result for our client and want to help those in Ontario struggling with similar cases. If you have been injured in a car accident in Ontario due to another driver’s negligence, reach out to the experienced accident lawyers at Mazin and Associates today.

Lerner and Rowe Sponsors a Free 2019 Summer Sports Pre-Screening Event for Student-Athletes in Las Vegas

Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is pleased to give back once again by sponsoring another Game Saver Program of the Las Vegas Sportz Foundation (LVSF).

Las Vegas Sportz Foundation's dedication to protecting our youth is just one of the reasons we continue to partner with the organization.”

— Kevin Rowe, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NEV., UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is pleased to give back once again by sponsoring another Game Saver Program of the Las Vegas Sportz Foundation (LVSF). Their summer program provides local student-athletes ages 10 to 18 with the opportunity to get a FREE pre-participation physical evaluation and heart screening for school sports. The event begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, 2019, at The Space (3460 Cavaretta Ct., Las Vegas, NV 89103), located off Polaris Ave., just North of Harmon Ave. Parents are required to schedule an appointment in advance, as well as ensure their child brings an athletic packet from their school to the appointment.

Because of the advanced steps taken during these pre-participation physical exam (PPE) sports screenings, physicians are able to detect general medical or physical problems in addition to any cardiac abnormalities in young athletes. Moreover, the electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiogram (ECHO) results, in addition to going over a qualitative exam and review of personal and family history, make these screenings much more informative than an average physical.

“LV Sportz Foundation goes above and beyond standard testing to help ensure student-athletes receive potentially life-saving exams without causing undue financial or emotional stress on families. Their dedication to protecting our youth is just one of the reasons we continue to partner with the organization,” said attorney Kevin Rowe.

Visit lvsportz.com/screening for more details, or contact Brian Bartolome, LV Sportz Foundation (702-561-1267 or brian@lvsportz.com) for additional information.

NJ Calls to Action for Hotel Worker Safety, AVANTE Responds

Hotel Panic Button

Avante Hotel Panic Button

Avante’s Hotel Panic Button device provides accurate location in real-time. The devices utilizes a rechargeable battery that can last up to 48 hours in a single charge.

New Jersey becomes the first state to mandate a panic button for hotel housekeepers

PRINCETON JUNCTION, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Tuesday June 12, 2019, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, signed a law that goes into effect in January requiring hotels with a minimum of 25 guest rooms and above to equip hotel staff with devices to enable safety measurements to those working alone.

There have been many incidents reported where housekeepers have been sexually assaulted by guests and 53% of hotel housekeepers have endured some type of sexual harassment. NJ is ready to make a change in hotel safety. AVANTE's hotel panic button will help hotel employees summon immediate assistance if danger is present. Although many cities such as Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C., already implemented panic buttons, NJ is the first state to require panic buttons. Hyatt, Wyndham and other large hotel chains have already pledged to have this safety system for their employees implemented by 2020.

The hotel panic button can ultimately be a lifeline to housekeepers working alone. Housekeepers often find themselves to be the only worker on a floor in large hotels. AVANTE Hotel Panic Button System has been proven to be effective and successful in many New York City hotels for more than 5 years. Once the housekeeper or maid presses the panic button, the security staff and management will be notified in real-time as in which floor and room the housekeeper in need of assistance is located. Security actions can be taken immediately upon request.

AVANTE is ready to help New Jersey make a change in hotel safety so that people are able to work in a safe and positive environment without the fear of being assaulted.

AVANTE International Technology, Inc. has over 20 years of innovations in providing system security and safety protection for facilities, assets and people. AVANTE has many patented real-time locating systems based on RFID and sensor technologies in protecting people, assets and facilities.

At issue on appeal was subject matter jurisdiction under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”). Janet P. Reed, Esq. reviews.

North Carolina needed to have jurisdiction to make an initial custody determination and also meet one of two prerequisites … Here, neither condition was met.”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North Carolina Court of Appeals vacated an order terminating a mother’s parental rights and dismissed the case In the Matter of: D.A.Y. because the trial court lacked jurisdiction under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”).

Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a comment that reviews this case. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

Petitioner Father filed a petition to terminate Respondent Mother’s parental rights in Stanly County District Court in North Carolina. “Petitioner alleged Dylan resided with him in Stanly County, such that ‘North Carolina is the home state of the child,’ pursuant to ‘a juvenile court order from the State of California entered as a result of a juvenile protective services investigation filed October 18, 2013 which gave custody to petitioner with supervised once per year visits granted to respondent.’ Petitioner further alleged ‘California terminated [its] jurisdiction by the terms of said order.’ The petition alleged Respondent is ‘a citizen and residence [sic] of Ventura County, California,’ but claimed she had temporarily ‘moved to Nevada in or about 2016 thereby terminating California’s jurisdiction.’”

“Respondent filed a written answer admitting the petition’s allegations regarding the respective locations of the parties and the actions of the court in California in the 2013 custody proceeding.” Trial court terminated Mother’s parental rights after a hearing on the merits and Respondent timely appealed.

At issue on appeal was whether North Carolina courts had subject matter jurisdiction over the matter under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”). Trial court found that California court at one point had jurisdiction over the matter, but then “relinquished continuing, exclusive jurisdiction when that State terminated their jurisdiction, and when both parties and the minor child subsequently moved from the State of California.” Court of Appeals noted that “to the extent the trial court’s findings of fact refer to the legal effect of actions taken by the parties or the court in California, they are reviewed de novo as conclusions of law.”

Under the UCCJEA, N.C. Gen. Stat.§ 50A-203(1)-(2), in order to take jurisdiction to modify California’s order, North Carolina needed to have jurisdiction to make an initial custody determination and also meet one of two prerequisites: (1) court of the other jurisdiction determines that it no longer has exclusive, continuing jurisdiction or determines that North Carolina would be the more convenient forum, (2) North Carolina court or court of the other state “determines that the child, the child’s parents, and any person acting as a parent do not presently reside in the other state.”

Here, neither condition was met. On October 18, 2013, California juvenile court issued an order that provided that juvenile court’s jurisdiction over the child was terminated and that any future modification proceeding had to be brought in family court. Court of Appeals explained that while such order terminated the juvenile court’s jurisdiction, it did not terminate the State of California’s jurisdiction over the matter. As to the second prerequisite, a finding by a court that no party currently resides in California, Father alleged in his petition and Mother admitted in her answer that Mother currently resides in California. Therefore, North Carolina courts did not have jurisdiction to modify California custody order from 2013.

Father also argued that California lost exclusive continuing jurisdiction when Mother moved to Nevada for two years, creating a time when no interested party lived in California. Court of Appeals rejected this argument, noting that in order for California to lose jurisdiction due to parties leaving the state, California court would have had to make a determination that California’s jurisdiction ceased. Because second prong of N.C. Gen. Stat.§ 50A-203 looks at whether any party presently resides in the state that had exclusive and continuing jurisdiction, it was inapplicable here. In order for exclusive and continuing jurisdiction to cease under first prong, only California courts have power to make such a determination, which there was no such record of in this case. Therefore, the order terminating Mother’s parental rights were vacated and the case was dismissed.

The case is In the matter of D.A.Y., No. COA18-1226.

Former Employees Sue Nolan Transportation Group for Overtime Wages

Nolan Transportation faces allegations of violating federal labor law by misclassifying workers as salaried and exempt from overtime

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 19, 2019, former employees (Plaintiffs) of Nolan Transportation Group, LLC (Nolan) filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Case No. 1:19-cv-2812) against the company to recover unpaid overtime wages. Nolan is a third-party logistics and freight brokerage company that connects its clients with independent trucking companies in order to transport their products.

Plaintiffs all worked as Account Managers, Tracking Specialists and Operations Coordinators for Nolan. Plaintiffs allege that Nolan violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by intentionally misclassifying them as exempt salaried employees and refusing to pay them and others similarly situated overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that they routinely worked more than fifty (50) hours per week without receiving “time and a half” their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in a workweek.

Plaintiffs’ attorney Benjamin L. Davis, III of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl explains, “when an employee is not actually performing administrative work at a level which would qualify them for an exemption under the law, they should be paid overtime premiums for working over forty (40) hours a week.”

According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs and other similarly-situated employees primarily performed routine office work, such as data entry and file maintenance. Plaintiffs allege that they were the initial points of contact when receiving calls from Defendant’s clients and that Defendant’s “no voicemails” policy required them and other Account Managers, Tracking Specialists and Operations Coordinators to be present anytime a client called. It is alleged that this policy, combined with persistent understaffing, resulted in Plaintiffs having to consistently work overtime, even though they failed to receive overtime wages. This constitutes a willful violation of the FLSA and applicable state wage and hour laws.
