WASHINGTON D.C. — Major transvaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard just reached a major settlement to resolve thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits the company is facing.
The company agreed to pay more than $200 million to settle at least 3,000 cases. This covers about a fifth of the outstanding lawsuits the company is facing for its defective transvaginal mesh products. The settlement amount will break down to approximately $67,000 per case. This is more than last year’s C.R. Bard mesh settlement (which worked out to $43,000 per case), but does not even remotely match the verdicts victims have been winning who have gone to trial against C.R. Bard and other mesh makers. The settlement decision comes after the federal judge presiding over thousands of transvaginal mesh cases advised the company to seek settlements before more multi-million dollar verdicts forced it to go bankrupt.
Transvaginal mesh is a popular implant that has been used in thousands of women to treat various pelvic floor disorders. It is a synthetic netting that is implanted into the body. It is meant to strengthen and support the muscles of the pelvis. This is useful in treating pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence.
Transvaginal mesh, however, has been found to have some serious design defects, causing devastating injuries. C.R. Bard is the manufacturer of six different transvaginal mesh lines that have been found to cause women injury.
