Cisson vs. Bard: $2 Million Victory for Donna Cisson

| Aug 15, 2013 | Drug and Medical Device Litigation, Transvaginal Mesh

On August 15, 2013, after about 12 hours of deliberation, the jury found for Donna Cisson in her vaginal mesh trial against manufacturer C.R.Bard Inc, and found damages in the amount of $250,000 and $1.75 million in punitive damages.  The jury found that Bard failed to provide adequate warnings as to the defects in its vaginal mesh product and that the device was defective.

This is the third victory for women in the three trials as Donna Cisson joins Christine Scott and Linda Gross in holding manufacturers responsible for their injuries.  In July 2012, a California jury awarded Christine Scott and her husband $5.5 million after she underwent nine revision surgeries.  Scott sued C.R. Bard in 2009 over its Avaulta Plus mesh product.  In February 2013, Linda Gross won $11.11 million in her lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon brand over its Prolift vaginal mesh product. Gross had 18 surgeries. The New Jersey jury found that J&J failed to warn patients and doctors about the risks of its mesh products and made fraudulent misrepresentations.

There are over 23,000 cases pending before Judge Goodwin in West Virginia with more trials slated.  If you would like more information, go to our website, or contact us at 800-481-1615 or email us.
