GM Chevy Cobalt Ignition Failure Lawsuit SettlementGM has settled a wrongful death lawsuit, Melton v. General Motors et. al., for an ignition switch failure. There are more then 1.4 million vehicles with defective ignition switches thru-out the U.S In this lawsuit the victim was a female who died in a 2010 accident involving a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt. This was this woman’s 29th birthday. Lawyers claimed that the ignition key failed, causing her to suddenly lose control of the vehicle. She was hit by another vehicle and drove into a creek. GM has admitted that they knew about these problems with the ignition switch in 2004. This was before the 2005 Chevy Cobalt was being sold. They did not recall the Chevy Cobalt’s but instead , sent a notice to dealers and created a snap-on key cover to fix the situation. This was hardly an answer to a massive and very dangerous problem. Since then General Motors has announced a plan that sets a $1 million starting point for each death in accidents caused by a defective ignition switch in GM cars.

As our vaginal mesh lawyers continue to file vaginal mesh lawsuits we are alerted to the fact that Bard has settled another vaginal mesh lawsuit. Although we do not know the settlement amount, it appears the vaginal mesh manufacturers are starting to see the results of their injuries to women.
By Jef Feeley – Sep 14, 2013 12:01 AM ET
C.R. Bard Inc. agreed to settle a woman’s claims that one of its vaginal-mesh implants caused internal problems before a trial set for this month in New Jersey, two people familiar with the accord said.
Bard officials agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to resolve Melanie Virgil’s claims that Bard’s Avaulta Plus insert caused urinary problems, said the people, who asked not to be named because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the settlement. Virgil’s case had been set for a Sept. 23 trial in state court in Atlantic City, according to court dockets.
It’s the second vaginal-mesh case Bard settled since a federal jury in Charleston, West Virginia, ordered the device maker last month to pay $2 million to a woman who blamed the company’s Avaulta devices for her injuries.
Bard, based in Murray Hill, New Jersey, faces more than 8,000 claims over the Avaulta line of inserts, which women allege can cause organ damage and make sexual intercourse painful when the devices erode. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Endo Health Solutions Inc. (ENDP) and Boston Scientific Corp. (BSX) face similar claims that their implants, threaded in place through vaginal incisions, shrink over time.
Scott Lowry, a Bard spokesman, didn’t immediately return phone and e-mail messages yesterday seeking comment on the settlement. Don Migliori, one of Virgil’s lawyers, declined to comment yesterday on the settlement.
Many of the implant cases against Bard and other manufacturers have been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in Charleston for pretrial information exchanges. Other cases have been filed in state courts in New Jersey, Missouri and California.
Bard officials pulled the Avaulta implants off the market last year after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered all makers of the devices to study rates of organ damage, infection and pain during sex linked to their products.
A California state court jury last year found Bard liable for a woman’s injuries related to an Avaulta implant in the first case to go trial in a U.S. court. Jurors said the company should pay $5.5 million in damages. Bard is liable for only $3.6 million under that state’s law.
The West Virginia jury concluded Aug. 15 that Bard should pay $250,000 in compensatory damages and $1.75 million in punitive damages to Donna Cisson, a nurse from Georgia who had an Avaulta Plus device implanted. Cisson said the mesh damaged her organs and caused other ailments, in the first case to be tried in federal court.
Virgil, a junior high school music teacher in Colorado, sued Bard after her Avaulta Plus device began to erode, according to court filings. The 56-year-old women said she needed three surgeries to address urinary problems created by the insert, according to the filings.
The case is Virgil v. C.R. Bard Inc. (BCR), ATL-L6917-10, Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Atlantic County (Atlantic City). The Bard consolidated cases are In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, 10-md-02187, U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia (Charleston).

The vaginal mesh bellwether trials are proceeding with 2 positive settlements that will set the tone for expectations of future vaginal mesh lawsuit settlements. Vaginal mesh lawyers applaud jury verdicts in favor of the injured women.
A jury has decided for the vaginal mesh victim in the first of over 4,550 lawsuits in the multidistrict C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2187). Donna Cisson, who suffered severe injuries after the implantation of Bard’s Avaulta Plus Posterior BioSynthetic Support System, was awarded $250,000 in compensatory damages plus $1.75 million in punitive damages.
A Bakersfield woman was awarded a Vaginal Mesh Claim Jury verdict of approx $5.5 million dollars. The woman, Christine Scott, sued the manufactures of surgical mesh C.R. Bard Inc. due to side effects caused by vaginal mesh. The woman was awarded $5 million dollars for pain and suffering after 9 different surguries were apparently needed to correct her problems. The woman's husband was also awarded $500,000 for his loss of intimacy.
On Feb. 25, 2013, a New Jersey jury awarded $3.35 million to a South Dakota woman who had to undergo more than a dozen surgeries to repair damage caused a vaginal mesh implant manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit.
As we can see there is a trend here. Jury's are outraged at the neglignce of these manufacturers and are siding with the injured victims. There are thousands of women with a implanted mesh. Many are just starting to realize their complications are from a mesh.
Many states have reached the statute of limitations cut off date on July 13th 2013. However, we have attorneys that are still accepting mesh lawsuits from all states. You are encouraged to file your vaginal mesh lawsuit immediately.
