A transvaginal mesh lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Division has ended with the jury awarding a $3.3 million verdict for the plaintiff. The lawsuit, which was tried in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is the second lawsuit against a manufacturer of transvaginal mesh to end in an award over $3 million for the plaintiff.
Legal experts believe the success of those two cases will lead to a settling of large quantities of transvaginal mesh lawsuits, particularly against C.R. Bard and Johnson & Johnson, the two manufacturers who were held responsible in these two landmark cases. Experts believe over 100,000 cases with an estimated $20 billion in settlements will follow. This would make transvaginal mesh one of the largest product liability settlements in history.
Experts further believe this lawsuit will lead to more women filing transvaginal mesh lawsuits. Faulty transvaginal mesh can require women to have extensive, painful corrective surgery.
