I received my ten percent today but in all honesty, I think I need a few answers as to why's and where's. I'm unsure that this was truly handled correctly.

My mother had kugel mesh put in 2003. Well May 31, 2012 I took her to the ER. Were she under went surgery June 1, 2012 the mesh had broke profrated thhu her intestines small and large. They had to remove almost all her intestines she under went surgery every day from June 01, 2012 until she died in the hospital June 9, 2012. I cant even get an attorney to return my call. She was only 64 had 2 children 2 grandchildren and 3 great grand kids under 5 years of age. We werent ready for her to go. She had no insurance basic funeral cost me almost 10000.00 been a year now and I still cant afford to get her a headstone. Her medical bills are over 200000.00 there crazy to think im gonna pay that.

A whole 4 months have gone by since I was told my attnys were meeting with Bard to settle the cases they are representing. After numerous attempts to get a update to my dissapotment i was told they passed over some of the cases my firm has because they were waiting on more paperwork which had nothing to do with my case in particular.
Supposedly there has been an extention to settle all the remaining cases which i believe is sometime in October. Has anyone else that is still playing the waiting game heard this as well. Also has anyone even been offered a settlement in this second round of The Waiting Gameg

I am sorry to hear you guys are getting screwed over by your attorneys again, they are making all the money and you people are getting your hopes dashed every time. Is there an ombudsman office or government body that regulates the lawyers. Every time I see an advertisement on American television for a class action law suit for medical malpractice I just cringe. You need to start a group against the lawyers, get publicity go on TV or local newspapers make people aware of this crap.

I finally received the 10 percent or whatever they decided they didn't need. I wonder if we could get a class action together for the attorneys that haven't performed to the expectations of their clients. I helped with grandkids school clothes and went out to dinner.

It has been nearly 5 years and not a dime and I had the ring break. I got letter in June asking me for all my medical bills. I took a day to compile all the data. Had never asked for any of them before. The atty. tells me they won't settle on me until all his Kugel Mesh cases are settled together. Others came in late. Why should I be penalized? Yes, I wish there was some recourse against these negligent attorneys but not sure what can be done. If you finally got the 10% you are lucky. I've got nothing but PAIN every day to deal with. If I make the atty. mad then who knows what kind of under the table deal these people will make. I'll keep waiting and praying for something soon. Will keep people updated on anything that happens.

If it has been 5 years and he is just asking for medical bills now, the last thing I would worry about is making the attorney mad. He would only be about half as mad as me. I would be parking my carcass in his or her office and demanding some explanations and would have a tape recorder with me. There must be some consumer advocate, reporter or interested TV station who would make a public announcement about this poor performance, by all the attorneys. Why have some people received their monies if they are all to be settled together, somebody is not telling the truth here.

My attorney asked for a lot of stuff before they decided to accept the case. Within 3 months, they had all of the records that we could think of. In the last five years, there were 3 or 4 extra requests for something they found they needed more info. I have griped about this mess a lot but I do believe this law office was as on top of the situation as possible. Twice during all this time I have called their office and had to call a second time to get them.

Spoke to my attorney this morning. He says he expects a settlement by the end of the month. The court has mandated that all cases be settled no later than Oct. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Dear Kris I dont know who you are using but the time starts when injury is determined. I almost died from my surgery and still have problems from it. You need to talk to someone at the RHGB law firm in providence. That is who I have my case with. Good luck.

Hi, they have set a date starting in september to try to get these settled this year. Judge Lisi is handleing the case. She is the lead judge in procidence where the trials are to take place. If you go to the district court web sight you can search and find the court order she issued about court docket and the 6 divisions she has devided the cases into. I think they are trying to get rid of all of the smaller cases before they get the big ones(like mine I am in class 3) It is hard to find much on these cases because the smaller ones are being settled out of court. Those of us who are left are in the upper class. Hope this helps.

Carlos, You need to go to a doctor about this. The problems feel like you are haveing another hernia. This can be deadly believe me I almost died. You need to find out what kind of mesh they used on you when they did the first surgery. If it is the mesh causeing the problem it needs to come out. Good luck.

Got a call from attny today. The 1-6 catagory applies only to injury caused by mesh that had a ring. There are other meshes included in the MDL and people have had complications as well as death but the damages being awarded are specific to mesh with ring only . Its a loop hole that is allowing the mfg to downgrade your case to a 5 or 6 putting you in a catagory with folks that have had no proplems what so ever . I for one have had over 6 surgeries with emergency surgery for a total bowel obstructin caused by mesh wrapped around my intestine. Because it is not the ring break coverd by the 1-6 . I am getting lumped in with people in the 6 catagory.( implanted with no complications ) when attny first looked at this I was a catagory 1 or 2. I antisipated being downgraded because thats Bards attnys job to have them pay out as little as possible but i am at a loss for words with the offer i got.

This global settlement as it is refered to is what Bard came up with to satisfy the jugdes order to wrap things up . From what is posted on earlier posts a 6 will get you 3k after all is said and done. A token of appreciation for releasing them from any further litigation.Victims with the same type of injuriers or damages got rated a 2 or 3 if you had specific mesh with the ring. Somewhere along the line someone got tired of holding the ball and dropped it and said lets just get this over with and stopped fighting for the victims and moved on to the next big thing. Vaginal sling mesh gone bad.......

. Bad product is bad product no matter which version it is.

Well, it is the end of the month and I have got NOTHING. No further conversation or letter. I have read that Oct. is suppose to be a deadline for wrapping up these cases. I had a ring break so I don't see how they could deny it. No consideration for the victim of this mesh at all.

Is there still pending cases on the lawsuits for the mesh? I have not heard anything from my attorney since March and that was because I called him to find out any updates. I was told that they would resume talks in September.
After reading many of the blogs here I have found that many have some of the same comlications that I have had too. I am just wondering has everyone received their settlements or are there still some pending cases?
I am so frustrated with this entire process. I have lost jobs and been unable to hold jobs because of the medical problems I have now.
Please, any information would be helpful.
