Kim Wilson, lead counsel at Wilson Law, P.A., was recently appointed by Federal District Court Judge Joseph Goodwin to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee (PSC) in the transvaginal mesh federal multi-district litigation (MDL) proceedings based in West Virginia.
This litigation involves thousands of women severely injured because of the placement of a transvaginal mesh device for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). As a member of the PSC, Kim’s role will be to coordinate the prosecution of lawsuits against the pelvic mesh manufacturers American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard and Ethicon/Gynecare (Johnson & Johnson).
Kim attended undergraduate and law school at West Virginia University; thus, she welcomes the opportunity to return to the state where her legal career began to handle cases on behalf of women who have been significantly injured by these products.
