The firm is currently offering transvaginal mesh lawsuit evaluations for those who allege they sustained injuries from vaginal mesh implants designed to treat vaginal prolapse in women.
New York, NY - November 20th, 2013 - The next C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh trial is scheduled for Dec. 3 in the U.S. District Court in West Virginia, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents clients in transvaginal mesh injury lawsuits, reports on updates related to Bard mesh trials, in addition to offering a brief rundown of the multimillion dollar vaginal mesh verdicts to date.
The trial is of the lawsuit titled Jones vs. C.R. Bard, Inc. (2:11-cv-0114; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia), the last of four scheduled bellwether trials in the first round, according to court documents (In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation; MDL-2187, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia).
Of the three previous federal bellwether Bard transvaginal mesh injury lawsuits intended to go to trial, there were two in which the plaintiffs received some form of compensation. In the first, on Aug. 15, 2013, a jury awarded plaintiffs Dan and Donna Cisson about $2 million in damages, according to court documents (Cisson v. C. R. Bard, Inc., 2:11-cv-00195; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia). In the second trial, the following week, plaintiff Wanda Queen settled out of court for an undisclosed sum, according to court documents (Queen et al v. C. R. Bard, Inc., 2:11-cv-00012; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia).
“Bellwether cases are those that are chosen because they are thought to best represent the remainder of the pending cases,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “Trials of bellwether cases should help predict how trials of the rest will turn out.”
Bard, AMS, Coloplast, Cook Medical and Boston Scientific are major mesh manufacturers in the consolidation of federal transvaginal mesh cases who are considering settling tens of thousands of lawsuits, according to a Sept. 30 Bloomberg article.
Women are filing transvaginal mesh lawsuits alleging they suffered injuries from serious, life-altering side effects such as pain, discomfort and the erosion of the mesh device, according to court documents.
