The first bellwether trial in the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) being heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia is moving forward, having met on Monday, July 8, 2013. The first of four bellwether trials being heard in the C.R. Bard MDL is Cisson, et al. v. C.R. Bard, Inc. 2:11-cv-00195.
Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers see the first bellwether case going to trial as an important step forward in the C.R. Bard MDL. In addition, the first bellwether case is a significant guide for future transvaginal mesh lawsuits that go to trial, according to Carey Danis & Lowe.
In the last C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuit, which was being heard in the Superior Court for Kern County in Bakersfield, California, the plaintiffs in the case, Christine Scott and her husband, were awarded $5.5 million by the jury. Scott filed her transvaginal mesh lawsuit claiming that the C.R. Bard Avaulta surgical mesh product caused organ damage that led to severe pain and suffering.
In the coming days, as the C.R. Bard bellwether trial in West Virginia continues to progress, Carey Danis & Lowe will closely follow the proceedings, as the case is of considerable importance to individuals who claim to have been injured by transvaginal mesh products.
