DALLAS, Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that a Federal Jury in West Virginia awarded a husband and wife $3.27MM in damages, according to Bloomberg News, against Ethicon, Johnson & Johnson's mesh product division. The Federal Court verdict is yet another loss for transvaginal mesh manufacturers; in April, a Texas Jury awarded a plaintiff over $1MM in damages. There have also been verdicts in California, New Jersey, and other states in favor of women transvaginal mesh victims.
With all of the winning trials, the lawsuit filings are picking up. Legal-Bay had accurately predicted that there would be 100K cases filed, and according to court records, between all of the manufactures, that number has now been eclipsed. In fact, J&J has recently reported in corporate filings that they face over 30K lawsuits themselves. Legal-Bay is also assisting women who have had recent complications with transvaginal mesh and bladder sling products who would like a free legal consultation from a transvaginal mesh lawyer or mesh law firm if they haven't done so already.
Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay, commented on the mesh litigation, "It is not surprising that we are now seeing more and more cases being filed, however, what is disappointing is that there is no end in sight for financial relief for so many women victims. Other than one settlement, most of the major settlement talks have stalled according to our sources. And amazingly, Ethicon seems content with fighting their claims through the courts even though they have not been successful in most of their trials to date."
To date, only Boston Scientific has been successful in winning more bellwether trials than losses with two winning trials in Massachusetts over the summer. Regardless, Legal-Bay is still of the belief that the transvaginal mesh settlement will be the largest product liability settlement in history topping the recent DePuy hip litigation when it is all said and done. However, plaintiffs have no idea when they will be paid, and it looks like in most cases clients will not see any settlement funds until 2015 at the earliest, with the exception being plaintiffs who have already opted-in to the Endo/AMS settlement. Legal-Bay's lawsuit pre-settlement cash advance programs enable women victims to obtain cash now to pay for life's necessities.
