Share Article

The second federal bellwether trial in the products liability actions against transvaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard Inc. has been settled for an undisclosed amount.

Wanda Queen, the plaintiff in the second bellwether trial against C.R. Bard, Inc., manufacturer of the Avaulta mesh products, has successfully settled her case shortly after her trial began Wednesday, August 21st. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed in court documents because the terms were confidential.*

“This settlement by Bard in this trial and the successful verdict in the first bellwether trial are just further evidence that women who are involved in litigation over these products should have hope. We will continue to fight for women who have been harmed by transvaginal mesh and hope to get them the compensation they deserve,” says Darren Miller, founding attorney of D. Miller & Associates, PLLC.

There are two more bellwether trials scheduled in this multidistrict litigation. The third is scheduled to begin on October 4, 2013 and the fourth will begin on November 8, 2013.

A safety communication issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in 2011 warned that serious complications associated with the surgical mesh used for treating conditions like pelvic organ prolapse were not rare.**

In addition to the C.R. Bard litigation, there are several other manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products currently involved in pending multidistrict litigation for similar claims. They include: American Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., Coloplast Corp., Cook Medical, Inc., and Ethicon, Inc.*** Each of these multidistrict litigations are also being presided over by U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in West Virginia, the judge in the C.R. Bard cases.

“If you or a loved one has suffered complications from a transvaginal mesh product requiring removal or an additional surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. We will try and get you the help you deserve,” says Miller.
