Lawsuit: Device Maker Sold Product Despite Knowledge of Risks
Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturer Johnson & Johnson faces more than 180 lawsuits from Pennsylvania women who allege they suffered an array of health problems because of defective vaginal mesh implant devices. Philly.com reports that the lawsuits filed in the state are among tens of thousands filed nationwide from women making similar claims.
Although at least one trial has ended in a verdict in favor of the device maker, an Indiana women was recently awarded $7 million in punitive damages and an additional $5.5 million in compensatory damages from a Philadelphia jury. Her attorney argued Johnson & Johnson failed to halt sales of the medical device despite knowledge of risks, and that the company did not have a plan in place if the device were to fail once inserted. The plaintiff claimed she was unable to have sex and experienced other problems related to the placement of a vaginal mesh insert intended to treat incontinence, among other issues, the website reported.
