Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Plaintiff in First Federal Bellwether Trial of C.R. Bard Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Awarded $2 Million
Date:8/16/2013

According to court documents, the company is facing more than 5,000 such claims in courts around the country, all of which allege its Avaulta products caused women to suffer painful transvaginal mesh complications, including mesh erosion, chronic pain, infection, and scarring. In multidistrict litigations, bellwether trials are designed to be test cases, and are used to help gauge the strength of plaintiffs’ claims in similar lawsuits. A second such trial is scheduled to begin in the federal C.R. Bard litigation on August 19th. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

The Plaintiff at the center of this first bellwether trial was implanted with C.R. Bard’s Avaulta Plus device in 2009. According to her complaint, the 45-year-old woman was forced to undergo multiple corrective procedures after she began suffering from severe vaginal mesh complications, including pain, bleeding and bladder spasms. Among other things, she alleged that C.R. Bard used a certain type of plastic resin in its Avaulta products, despite knowing it was not meant for permanent implantation in humans.

According to court records, this is the second loss in a row for C.R. Bard in a vaginal mesh lawsuit. Last July, a California Superior Court jury ordered the company to pay $3.6 million of a $.5.5 million judgment after it determined C.R. Bard was partly responsible for vaginal mesh complications suffered by another Avaulta Plus recipient. The woman’s surgeon was found liable for the remainder of the judgment. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California (Bakersfield))

The C.R. Bard litigation is just one of several pending in the Southern District of West Virginia for vaginal mesh lawsuits. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for the following federal litigations: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repai
