TorHoerman Law is happy to announce more good news for transvaginal mesh plaintiffs. The second bellwether case to go to trial, Queen v. C.R. Bard, Inc., regarding C.R. Bard’s Avaulta transvaginal mesh settled for an undisclosed amount on the day it was set to go to trial, August 21, 2013.
Wanda Queen, the North Carolina plaintiff, allegedly suffered permanent vaginal mesh injuries after she was implanted with the Avaulta Solo Anterior Synthetic Support System. She was forced to undergo six revisionary surgeries.
The case never made it to court as the settlement happened on the morning the trial was scheduled to begin. This success comes a week after a West Virginia Federal Court awarded $2 million to a plaintiff who also suffered irreparable harm from a C.R. Bard Avaulta transvaginal mesh device.
These are just two of the 4,408 cases currently filed by women who suffer from injuries allegedly caused by C.R. Bard’s Avaulta transvaginal mesh. Transvaginal mesh lawsuits against C.R. Bard and five other medical device manufacturers have been consolidated before Honorable Joseph Goodwin in the United States District Court Southern District of West Virginia. Read more »
