C.R. Bard Inc. (BCR) agreed to settle a woman’s claims that its vaginal-mesh implants caused her injuries as the second federal trial of lawsuits over the devices was about to begin in West Virginia. Attorneys for Wanda Queen of North Carolina notified a judge in Charleston, West Virginia, today that they had settled her claims that Bard’s Avaulta insert caused pain and forced her to have six surgeries. The settlement comes a week after another West Virginia jury ordered Bard to pay $2 million in damages in a separate suit involving the product.
