  • On March 5, 2015, a California jury ordered Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $5.7 million in a California transvaginal mesh trial. As a last-ditch effort, Ethicon lawyers are making an attempt to appeal the $700,000 in punitive damages.

    Ethicon issued the following statement about the appeal for punitive damages:

    The evidence showed the TVT Abbrevo midurethral sling was properly designed and Ethicon acted appropriately and responsibly in the research development and marketing of the product.

    Although the Plaintiff Coleen Perry and her lawyer may have won claims their main arguments it could be a long appeal process. Ethicon has only paid out 4 settlements (including this one) so they have experience and financing that will prolong their litigation efforts.

  • CHARLESTON – A federal judge has denied a motion requesting a reduction in punitive damages in a lawsuit against C.R. Bard Inc. for its vaginal mesh products.

    District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin denied the motion for a new trial and to reduce the $1.75 million in punitive damages. He believes the motions filed by C.R. Bard are unpersuasive of a new trial.

    “Crucially, none of the objections raised by Bard constitutes an error ‘so grievous as to have rendered the trial unfair,’” Goodwin’s opinion states.

    On the contrary, the evidentiary decisions made during the trial ensured that the jury would hear the most probative evidence from each side without being confused and misled by superfluous and complicated testimony, according to the opinion.

    Because of this, Goodwin denied the motion for a new trial and denied Bard’s subsequent requests.

    The case was the first jury trial within the seven MDLs assigned to Goodwin by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation concerning the use of transvaginal surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, according to the opinion.

    Transvaginal Mesh Pre-Settlement Funding

    During litigation, plaintiffs often find themselves waiting longer than expected for the resolution of their case. Due to the length of litigation and the possible inability to work during the case, some may also find their funds depleting. This can lead to having to accept a smaller settlement in a shorter period of time to avoid additional debt.

    Those who are suffering with keeping up with expenses can now obtain financial assistance through pre-settlement funding. We are a provider of “non-recourse” advances that can help you through hard times.

    The Benefits of Pre-Settlement Funding

    The terms lawsuit funding, legal funding, litigation finance, legal finance, pre settlement funding, settlement funding, etc., are all used to describe the same thing, yet they are not household terms and are not even familiar terms to many people involved in personal injury lawsuits. In fact, unless you’re in need and are searching for a lawsuit funding, you likely don’t even know this type of legal finance exists. The benefits of lawsuit funding are many, but it isn’t for everyone. If you can wait out the court system, the defendant’s lawyers and their insurance company, you’re in a good position.

  • A California jury on Thursday March 5, 2015 ordered Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc unit to pay $5.7 million in the first trial over injuries blamed on the TVT Abbrevo. The TVT Abbrevo is just one of numerous transvaginal mesh products that are the subject of thousands of lawsuits.

    Following more than three days of deliberations in Kern County, California, jurors found Ethicon liable for problems with the TVT Abbrevo’s design and for failing to warn about its risks, according to a lawyer for plaintiff Coleen Perry.

    Perry was awarded $700,000 in compensatory damages and an additional $5 million in punitive damages after jurors in the Bakersfield court found Ethicon’s conduct amounted to “malice,” her lawyer said.

    The verdict is the fourth win for plaintiffs suing Ethicon over transvaginal mesh. More than 36,000 lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon in state and federal courts over the devices, which are used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

    Ethicon Mesh Recall and Lawsuit FAQ

    Ethicon is a manufacture of surgical mesh products. Surgical mesh is an artificial, net-like product used by doctors to support weakened or damaged tissue inside the body. In some procedures, doctors insert surgical mesh into a woman’s body through the vagina to better reach the affected area. This is known as a TransVaginal Mesh procedure.

    TransVaginal Mesh is commonly used to treat women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Ethicon Mesh is used to treat both conditions frequently occurring in women following childbirth. Damaged and weakened tissue allows internal organs to shift inside the body, leading to numerous health problems. In treating POP, mesh is implanted in the body to support a weakened vaginal wall. In treating SUI, on the other hand, mesh forms part of a sling system inserted to support internal organs. Besides TransVaginal Mesh placement, surgical mesh can also be inserted through the abdomen.
