Jury Awards Plaintiff $5.7 Million In Johnson & Johnson Mesh Incontinence Implant Case

transvaginal-mesh(1)

A California jury has ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $5.7 million to a woman injured by the Abbrevo sling mesh implants.

The woman received the implant, and then had to have follow up surgery to remove part of the implant when it eroded inside of her body.

The jury came to the conclusion that Johnson & Johnson was liable for the woman’s injuries. The plaintiff in the case, Coleen Perry, received $700,000 for her actual damages. However, the jury awarded her an additional $5 million for punitive damages related to Johnson & Johnson’s mishandling of the defects associated with their devices.

The market for vaginal mesh inserts is quite lucrative. Analysts project that the market will be worth more than $1.5 billion in the next two years. Johnson & Johnson was accused at trial of intentionally misleading patients and doctors about the safety of its products.

Damaging Organs

The mesh implants designed and sold by Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries have gravely injured women. As the FDA has recognized, numerous complications associated with the mesh devices actually exposes patients to much more risk.

Severe complications have damaged the bladder, bowels and urinary tracts of female patients. Even when the implants are removed, they leave behind painful and dangerous scar tissue.
