As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, court is resuming. Hernia mesh lawsuits against Bard, Ethicon, Atrium, and Covidien are moving forward in courts across the country.
The lawsuits are focused on multiple product lines, including:
- Bard’s PerFix, 3DMax, Marlex, Kugel, Composix, Ventralex, Ventrio, Sepramesh, and Ventralight;
- Ethicon’s Proceed and Prolene;
- Atrium’s C-Qur; and
- Covidien’s Parietex and Gore-Tex.
Although the products and claims vary, progress in these cases will be telling for future hernia mesh lawsuits.
