PHILADELPHIA, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they will be putting a focus on funding morcellator cases this year. With 28 cases against J&J's Ethicon already consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas, they expect more and more lawsuits to be filed as time goes on.

According to Drug Watch, the lawsuits accuse Ethicon "of designing a defective product and failing to warn patients of risks." The morcellator device 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
  • 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 company's focus, "We have started to see a lot more activity on the morcellator cases as of late, with plaintiffs alleging serious injuries and advanced stage cancer, leading some to wrongful death lawsuits. Our firm has been dedicated to helping patients or their family members get the lawsuit cash advance they need. We've also been helping potential plaintiffs get a free consultation with a qualified morcellator lawyer."
