Settlement Offered to Victims of Transvaginal Mesh Complications
September 15th, 2015|
Many women suffering from conditions like pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence undergo corrective procedures utilizing transvaginal mesh. Many of these patients have suffered transvaginal mesh complications, including pain, swelling, and perforation of organs or tissue.
Some patients who suffered injuries filed civil litigation against the makers of the transvaginal mesh products. A large portion of these cases may soon be resolved if a settlement offered by one transvaginal mesh maker is approved.
According to Bloomberg Business, transvaginal mesh manufacturer, C.R. Bard, Inc., has offered $200 million dollars to settle roughly 3,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed against them. If the terms of the settlement are approved, it could mean each victim getting as much as $67,000 in compensation.
The decision to offer the settlement came on the heels of a court order for the company to pay a West Virginia woman $2 million in compensation for injuries she sustained due to transvaginal mesh implanted into her body.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we recognize the struggles many victims of a transvaginal mesh failure face along their journey to recovery. That’s why our transvaginal mesh lawyers are hopeful the settlement will bring a sense of closure to each of the victims harmed by Bard’s product.
