PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation recently made a decision to transfer morcellator cases against Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary, Ethicon, to a single multidistrict litigation court in Kansas. According to Drug Watch, at least 28 morcellator lawsuits against J&J's Ethicon have been transferred to the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas, and the lawsuits accuse Ethicon "of designing a defective product and failing to warn patients of risks." The morcellator product has sparked controversy, with risks of unintentionally spreading uterine cancer. In April of 2014, the FDA put out a warning stating that the risk was 1 in 350. That same month, J&J recalled their morcellators from the market, however, lawsuits have been growing against the company.

Morcellators have been used in different laparoscopic surgeries, including hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures, as well as laparoscopic spleen and renal surgeries. While the morcellator device provides a less-invasive surgery and quicker recovery time, the following have been listed as potential side effects: spread of malignant tissue, advanced-stage cancerous growths, and metastatic leiomyosarcoma, an aggressive uterine cancer. If you, or a loved one, have been injured by a morcellation device, please contact Legal-Bay so you can speak to a law firm immediately.

Patty Kirby, COO and Head of Client Relations, commented on the recent news in the morcellator lawsuits against Ethicon, "We are starting to see a lot more activity on the morcellator cases of late. These cases allege the most serious injuries of advanced stage cancer, leading some to wrongful death lawsuits. Our firm has been very active in helping patients or family members get the lawsuit cash advance they need, or helping them get a free consultation with a qualified morcellator lawyer. Unfortunately, cases of this nature with potential for high award values or amounts, if won at trial, typically take years to resolve."
