First Federal Claim Over Transvaginal Mesh Heads to Trial

The National Law Journal reports, “Donna Cisson already had lost some control of her bladder,” but “when her problems began interfering with her sex life, she turned to a specialist who diagnosed her with pelvic organ prolapse—a condition that can cause urinary incontinence or pain, sometimes during sex.” The Journal continues, “In 2009, Cisson underwent surgery in Georgia to implant a transvaginal mesh device to solve the problem,” but she “began suffering from bleeding and pain during sex, plus bladder spasms, and had to undergo another two surgeries to remove the device.” Cisson and her husband sued C.R. Bard Inc., the device manufacturer, in 2011, “claiming the company knew about the problems associated with its product but failed to adequately warn doctors,” and the case “is the first to go to trial of about 20,000 lawsuits filed over transvaginal mesh products.” The cases “are pending in multidistrict litigation before U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in Charleston, W.Va.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
