St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
The law firm of Carey Danis & Lowe continues to closely follow transvaginal mesh lawsuit news across the country. As a national law firm representing women who allege that transvaginal mesh caused them harm and injury, Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers were encouraged by the outcome of a lawsuit in New Jersey involving the medical device manufacturer, C. R. Bard.
The transvaginal mesh lawsuit was scheduled to go to trial in late September in the Superior Court of New Jersey in Atlantic City, according to Bloomberg.* However, before proceedings could commence, C. R. Bard reached a settlement agreement with the plaintiff. The settlement amount has not been made public.
The lawsuit, Virgil v. C. R. Bard Inc., ATL-L6917-10, involves a Colorado woman, Melanie Virgil, who received an implant of the C. R. Bard Avaulta Plus mesh. In her lawsuit, Virgil claims that the C. R. Bard mesh severely impacted her health, requiring several surgical operations.
In past lawsuits that went to trial, C. R. Bard was ordered to pay $5.5 million in a California case, and $2 million in a federal case in West Virginia.
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been consolidated into the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The C. R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) is In re: C. R. Bard, Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2187. C. R. Bard faces approximately 4,600 cases in the West Virginia MDL.
