People are interested regarding the Bard Hernia Mesh lawsuit update 2022. C.R. Bard is defending over 16,000 hernia mesh lawsuits alleging that its mesh devices were defective and caused thousands of hernia surgery patients to suffer injuries and complications. Hernia mesh attorneys handle claims in all 50 states.

This post will provide news and updates on the C.R. Bard hernia mesh lawsuit, as well as an update on the current status of the Bard hernia mesh class-action MDL as of September 26, 2022, following the new $4.8 million C.R. Bard verdict in Rhode Island state court.

Before we get into the specifics of the various class action hernia mesh lawsuits filed against Bard, let's start with what most of you are here for: the latest news and updates on the hernia mesh litigation.

The MDL judge in the Bard Hernia Mesh litigation recently issued an order confirming the pre-trial and trial schedule for the upcoming third bellwether test trial in Stinson v. C.R. Bard, et al.

On February 21, 2023, the trial will begin. Each side will be given 35 hours of trial time, which should result in a three-week trial. Daubert motions must be filed by October 7, 2022.

One of the issues raised during the Trevino trial was that C.R. Bard used a plastic resin in its mesh products despite the plastic supplier's warning that it was not safe for that purpose. This was not a major revelation. However, the plaintiff's lawyers worked hard to develop this issue during the trial.

C.R. Bard used LyondellBasell's Pro-fax 6523 plastic in all of its hernia mesh products because it was the cheapest available material that met specifications. Despite the fact that LyondellBasell deemed Pro-fax 6523 unsuitable for permanent implantation within the body and specifically prohibited buyers from using it in hernia mesh products, Bard did so.

The fact that C.R. Bard purposefully ignored this is a new revelation that could tip the balance in the C.R. Bard class action lawsuit. This trial puts significant strain on the upcoming settlement talks. Bard does not want to accept another multimillion-dollar verdict like the one it received in Trevino.

The outcome of the current bellwether trial will most likely determine the amount of settlement money awarded to plaintiffs in the Bard hernia mesh litigation.

At this point, estimating the amount of the settlement payout is speculative at best. Nobody knows what the average settlement will be or how the recent defense verdict will affect the course of this litigation.

Final Words

An attorney's estimation of average settlement amounts is always subject to change. However, based on the settlement of a previous mass tort involving an earlier hernia mesh implant (the Kugel hernia mesh), we can make an educated guess as to the average settlement payout compensation plaintiffs may receive in the Bard hernia mesh lawsuits.
