Ethicon Physiomesh Lawsuits - Current Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Information
If you or a member of your family was implanted with surgical hernia mesh for laparoscopic ventral repair surgery and later experienced complications, you may have legal grounds to file a Physiomesh lawsuit against Ethicon. Hernia mesh injury lawsuits enable individuals to seek compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering that have resulted from this defective product.
Thousands of Americans agreed to have Physiomesh implanted on the assumption that it had been carefully tested for safety. In fact, Ethicon's hernia mesh was approved through a fast-track FDA approval process and had never been tested on humans prior to market approval. Only after countless patients had been implanted with the device did researchers detect the trend of high failure and revision rates. Our attorneys believe that persons who were harmed by hernia mesh injuries through no fault of their own deserve compensation for their losses and suffering.
Shortly after receiving the results of two large European hernia mesh outcomes studies, Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon division pulled certain Physiomesh products from markets worldwide. In an Urgent Field Safety statement, the company cited non-specific product defects and indicated these particular hernia patches would never be marketed again. When compared to other mesh products used for ventral hernia repair, Ethicon's Physiomesh stood out for its track record of poor outcomes. Millions of patients undergo hernia repair surgery every year, and before it was withdrawn, Ethicon hernia mesh was a popular product for ventral hernia repair.
Ethicon Physiomesh Lawsuits for Hernia Mesh Problems
Once a trusted household name for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson now finds itself the subject of major litigation as a result of a string of dangerous and defective products. In 2016, for example, the company was required to pay more than $200 million to just three plaintiffs who developed ovarian cancer after using the company's talc-based body freshening products. Nearly 2,000 more such claims are pending in courts around the nation. Filing a lawsuit is often the only means an individual consumer has to hold a large multi-national corporation accountable for consumer safety.
Unfortunately, facing the threat of major litigation is often the only factor that effectively motivates a company to increase its attention toward consumer safety. Motivated by profits, short cuts in premarket testing and negligence toward safety become commonplace. To some extent, litigation is seen as a cost of doing business to these large corporations, and harming some patients along the way seems inevitable. Johnson & Johnson and its many subsidiaries record annual sales of over $70 billion. Filing a hernia mesh lawsuit can help individuals recover the compensation they deserve, and also serves to hold Ethicon accountable for the safety of its medical devices in the long run.

Hernia Mesh Injury Lawsuits Are Not Class Action Lawsuits
Physiomesh lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits in which claimants should anticipate only a small, symbolic settlement. Instead, it is likely that hernia mesh lawsuits against Ethicon will be consolidated as Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). MDL is a legal procedure that accelerates the processing of many similar claims, while still preserving the particular details of each case. Compensation is determined on an individual basis, accounting for the degree of suffering experience by each claimant. MDL unifies consumers harmed by a common drug or medical device in order to advance justice and demand corporate accountability.
