PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that Johnson & Johnson has finally made its first serious attempt to start resolving some of the thousands of cases against them with a $120 million settlement. The accord is said to resolve somewhere between 2-3K cases of the approximate 42,000 lawsuits J&J still faces. The lawsuits have similar allegations that claim the company's transvaginal mesh inserts resulted in injuries and pain after the inserts eroded in their bodies. The settlement comes just after a $12.5 million jury verdict award against Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon subsidiary last month for a woman plaintiff in Philadelphia. However, this settlement is landmark in many ways, as it's the first time Johnson & Johnson and its Ethicon subsidiary have agreed to a settlement to try to resolve a good-sized portion of the cases against them. J&J still faces approximately 42,400 cases, indicated by a regulatory filing.
