PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that a Philadelphia jury returned a $13.5 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon subsidiary on Wednesday, making this the second substantial verdict award in favor of the plaintiffs in recent months. The woman involved alleged that the company's Gynemesh TVT transvaginal mesh implant left her in near-constant pain and discomfort and unable to have sex. The Philadelphia jury awarded her $3.5 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages. Just last month, another woman plaintiff was awarded $12.5 million against J&J's Ethicon due to being seriously injured by an Ethicon Prolift mesh implant, making this most recent verdict another big loss for the mesh manufacturer in a short amount of time.

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits are currently pending against Ethicon, with similar claims by women plaintiffs who have sustained serious injuries.
