ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that a verdict has been reached in the much anticipated transvaginal mesh lawsuit case involving Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon Division (Gross V. Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, et al). Legal-Bay had accurately predicted last week that the verdict would come out this week and based on their panel of experts watching the case that the award could be large based on the testimony against J&J.
Legal-Bay, which has been a plaintiff advocate firm for women victims who have suffered vaginal mesh and bladder sling injuries, is not surprised that the jury saw the damages incurred on the plaintiff. Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented on the verdict, "although the verdict has just come in, and there are more facts to be determined, it is clear that the jury held J&J responsible for severe injuries from the defective mesh. As an industry leader in transvaginal mesh lawsuit funding, we have seen the damages that this has caused so many women, and we feel that today's verdict affirms that the public is now also seeing the seriousness of this transvaginal mesh litigation. This is now the 2nd jury that has awarded over $3MM to plaintiffs with serious mesh injuries," added Mr. Janish.
Although the verdict is still fresh, many insiders believe that the cases will start to settle in large quantities, especially against Johnson & Johnson and C.R. Bard, since they are the first two losing manufacturers in this extensive litigation. Many experts are predicting over 100K cases and close to $20Bil in settlements making it one of the largest product liability settlements of all time.
Legal-Bay believes the large verdict will now only see more people filing suits and larger needs for women who need corrective surgical funding, and lawsuit cash advance funding services. "After the last large verdict against Bard, we saw a large spike in applications and from victims needing a law firm, we expect to see the same once the public is aware of this $3.3MM verdict. We are actively assisting so many women with needed surgical and lawsuit funding, and remain committed to them on an even larger level now that we have two large verdicts against two of the main manufacturers," said Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay. For clients who believe they were injured, but have not filed a claim, Legal-Bay urges them to get legal assistance immediately. Legal-Bay can refer victims to a Transvaginal Mesh Law Firm if they are in need of a free legal consultation to determine if they have a valid case.
