According to a report filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, C.R. Bard, Inc., manufacturer of the Avaulta line of mesh products (http://avaultameshlawsuit.co/), the company has settled more than 500 pending lawsuits involving that product line.*

According to the Form 10-Q filed: “During the second quarter of 2014, the company reached an agreement with two plaintiffs’ law firms to settle their inventory of cases, representing more than 500... filed or asserted [Avaulta claims].... The company also settled one MDL case that was originally scheduled for trial in May 2014. In addition, the company continues to engage in discussions with other plaintiffs’ law firms regarding potential resolution of unsettled [claims].”

“This report of settlements is very encouraging,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “Alleged victims are receiving compensation for harms, and more settlements could be coming.”

As of July 7, 2014, according to the 10-Q, “product liability lawsuits involving individual claims by approximately 12,445 plaintiffs have been filed or asserted against the company in various federal and state jurisdictions alleging personal injuries associated with the use of certain of the company’s surgical continence products for women, including its Avaulta line of products.”*
