First C.R.Bard Mesh Lawsuit Awarded $2.2 Million in Federal Court

A jury in West Virginia awarded a woman 2 million dollars in damages from CR Bard Inc in her lawsuit over Trans Vaginal Mesh. Donna Cisson sued CR Bard claiming they failed to warn of Vaginal Mesh Side Effects. There jury awarded $1.75 in punitive damages and then an additional $250,000 compensatory damages. The lawsuit claimed that CR Bard failed to disclose the possible side effects of Surgical or Trans-Vaginal mesh and they promoted the vaginal mesh as a "Safe" medical device.  The trial was originally ruled a “mistrial” after testimony and a new jury was drawn. The judge ruled that a doctor gave improper mesh testiomony which would be impossible for the jury to overlook. There was another Vaginal Mesh lawsuit that was tried in California last month. In that surgical mesh trial a woman was award a total of 5.5 million dollars in compensation for side effects cause by vaginal mesh.

The list of side effects that have been linked to Transvaginal mesh include: severe pain, urinary infection, pain during sex, urine leaking, vaginal scaring, recurrence of prolapse and urinary problems. In 2008 the FDA issued a warning to doctors regarding serious complications tied to Trans-vaginal mesh devices.

Reports indicate the jury went into deliberations for over 12 hours before coming to a decision that Bard was liable. Bard representatives said they will appeal the jury’s decision to hold them liable. This vaginal mesh lawsuit was the 1st Federal Mesh Lawsuit against Bard. It has been reported that there are over 8,000 potential vaginal mesh lawsuits against that specific maker of vaginal mesh. It has also been reported there are almost 20 thousand cases against all makes or surgical or trans vaginal mesh. This list of Transvaginal mesh manufactures includes

Also it has been reported that another Vaginal Mesh lawsuit will start trial on Monday August 19, 2013 before U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin. Goodwin was assigned the surgical mesh cases as part of federal multidistrict litigation. The specific brand of vaginal mesh which Bard is being sued over is a surgical mesh called Avaulta.
