Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Report on Developments in First Federal Trial of C.R. Bard Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit
Date:8/11/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

The vaginal mesh lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced medical device law firm, are monitoring developments in the first federal trial of a C.R. Bard vaginal mesh lawsuit. The transvaginal mesh lawsuit or bladder mesh lawsuit is one of more than 4,100 claims that have been filed in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, on behalf of women who suffered serious complications, allegedly due to C.R. Bard vaginal mesh products. According to court documents, jury selection in the trial concluded on July 29th. Following opening statements, jurors heard testimony from several of the Plaintiffs’ witnesses, including a doctor from the Center for Female Continence and Urogynecologic Surgery who played a key role in the development of Avaulta mesh, as well as project leader for C.R. Bard, and a professor of material science and engineering at the University of Florida. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

Wright & Schulte LLC is already representing numerous women who have allegedly experienced painful vaginal mesh complications due to products manufactured by C.R. Bard and other companies. If you or someone you love suffered serious, life-altering transvaginal mesh complications following implantation of pelvic mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, please visit yourlegalhelp.com, or call toll-FREE 1-800-399-0795 to learn more about your options for legal recourse.

According to court documents, the transvaginal mesh lawsuit at trial in West Virginia was filed by a woman who underwent multiple corrective surgeries after receiving C.R. Bard’s Avaulta Plus product. Among other things, her lawsuit alleges that C.R. Bard used a plastic resin that the company knew was not fit to be implanted in humans. According to Wright & Schulte LLC, the outcome of this case could provide some clues into how juries might rule in similar vaginal mesh lawsuits.

In addition to the C.R. Bard litigation, several other multidistrict litigations are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia for vaginal mesh lawsuits involving other device manufacturers, including:

  • In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325)
  • In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2326);
  • In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327); and
  • In Re: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2387).

While the C.R. Bard trial is the first to get underway in federal court, two cases have gone to trial at the state level over the past year. Last July, a jury in California awarded $5.5 million to a woman and her husband in the nation’s first C.R. Bard vaginal mesh trial. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California) In March, a New Jersey Superior Court jury weighing claims in that litigation’s first Ethicon bellwether trial ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a recipient of the Gynecare Prolift device. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey)

According to the data from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), transvaginal mesh devices have been implanted in thousands of women to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. But in 2008 and 2011, the agency warned of an increasing number of injury complaints tied to the use of these products. According to the FDA, the most frequently reported vaginal mesh complications include mesh erosion and shrinkage, chronic pain, infection, and pain during sexual intercourse.
