The second C. R. Bard bellwether trial in a West Virginia federal court has been settled.
The plaintiff in the Bard trial in West Virginia, Wanda Queen, filed her transvaginal mesh lawsuit claiming that C. R. Bard’s Avaulta mesh product caused her severe pain. Furthermore, Queen claims to have undergone six surgical operations to repair damages from C. R. Bard mesh.
The settlement, whose amount has not been disclosed, follows the decision delivered by a jury in mid-August ordering Bard to pay $2 million to a plaintiff in compensatory and punitive damages in Cisson v. C. R. Bard, Inc. The case involving plaintiff Donna Cisson was the first bellwether trial in the C. R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) in West Virginia.
Also, in July 2012, a California jury awarded a plaintiff in a C. R. Bard lawsuit $5.5 million for damages and medical expenses, according to a Bloomberg report.
The decisions delivered thus far in C. R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuits show a clear trend, and communicate that C. R. Bard will be held responsible for releasing defective products onto the market.
