CHARLESTON, W.Va. — One of the leading makers of the dangerous transvaginal mesh has decided against pushing forward with its probe against plaintiffs and their lawyers who filed transvaginal mesh personal injury claims.
Allegations of Fraud
Recently in the federal district court in the Southern District of West Virginia, where thousands of transvaginal mesh cases are filed, Johnson & Johnson accused plaintiffs and their lawyers of fraud.
The major medical device manufacturing company filed a motion with the court to investigate fraud claims, which as expected, were baseless.
Several women and their families had received unsolicited calls from a call center that was promising monetary damages for their transvaginal mesh injuries. Johnson & Johnson blamed this illegal solicitation on the plaintiffs’ attorneys, when in fact it was an unrelated third party.
Johnson & Johnson withdrew its motion to investigate earlier this week and it did so without explanation or public comment. Simply put, this was a delay tactic by the company and served no real purpose.
The fact that this was a pointless motion by the company is supported by the fact plaintiffs’ attorneys notified the court of the problem months earlier. Once again, the major medical manufacturer was trying to distract from the key issue – its dangerous and defective product – and place blame on the victims.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Johnson & Johnson is one of seven major manufacturers that are facing thousands of cases alleging their transvaginal mesh products were dangerous and defective. Transvaginal mesh is a popular synthetic surgical netting that is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. In many women the muscles in the pelvic region become extremely weak, thus causing the neighboring organs to fall out of place. This is known as pelvic organ prolapse. Transvaginal mesh was created to help prevent or treat this problem. Unfortunately, not only was transvaginal mesh (also known as bladder slings) unsuccessful at treating prolapse in many women, it often caused prolapse to occur. In addition, it caused a multitude of other health complications. The mesh eroding and the pieces travelling out of place are a major concern. This results in infection, pain, pain during intercourse, incontinence, and organ perforation (leading to organ damage).
If you or a loved one has been hurt by transvaginal mesh, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, injuries, and expenses. Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
