Avaulta Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits: What Bringing a Claim Really Entails

The C.R. Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh lawsuits allege that mesh surgically implanted to treat pelvic organ prolapse may be defective. As a result, an unbelievable number of women are at risk for internal injuries and urinary problems.

The FDA recently expressed an even graver concern that the placement of surgical mesh through the vagina to repair pelvic organ prolapse may expose women to greater risks than other available options.
Bard Avaulta mesh lawsuits allege that the defective design of the mesh implant may increase the risk of infection, erosion and other painful complications. Plaintiffs’ lawyers are bringing lawsuits against C. R. Bard, Inc., which makes and sells Avaulta Plus and Avaulta Solo synthetic surgical mesh tissue supports, and a host of other manufacturers.

These lawsuits are multiplying quickly. But there are a lot of women who are not going to bring a vaginal mesh lawsuit because they perceive a privacy invasion. This is understandable but it underscores a general misconception about what a claim will entail.
These are national mass tort cases. Frankly, mass torts are rather impersonal and are handled by national lawyers – attorneys you likely will ever meet. Many vaginal mesh lawsuits have already reached a settlement for pretty decent sums of money – life changing for many people. In many ways, it is about filling out some paperwork and waiting and you always have the option of just dropping your case if you don’t like where it is going in terms of your privacy or your need to be involved in the case.

Ultimately, some women are going to read the preceding paragraph and say “I don’t care, I’m not putting myself out there in any way.” I can’t really argue with this. I’m just trying to provide the full context to potential clients.
