NATIONAL – A federal jury has awarded a couple $1.5 million for injuries the husband suffered after a hernia patch made by the Cranston firm Davol Inc. ruptured in his abdomen. After deliberating about two days, a jury found that the failure of Davol and its parent company, C.R. Bard Inc., to warn about the dangers of mesh patch led to the plaintiff’s injuries. The records reflect that the plaintiff suffered after having a hernia repaired in 2005.
The jury also found that the patch’s poor design caused the couple’s suffering.
