MANASQUAN, N.J., Feb. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fair Rate Funding, a transvaginal mesh lawsuit funding company, reports a verdict in favor of Teresa Taylor against Johnson and Johnson (J&J) in a product liability lawsuit concerning Mentor Ob Tape. A federal jury awarded Ms. Taylor $4.4 million dollars on Thursday, February 18th after only 3 hours of deliberations. This verdict marked the second multimillion dollar verdict found against the pelvic mesh manufacturer J&J in the last two weeks. A Philadelphia jury awarded Sharon Carlino $13.5 million earlier this month.
Mentor Ob Tape is a pelvic sling which uses transvaginal mesh, also known as TV mesh or pelvic mesh. These medical products are typically used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Tens of thousands of patients who were implanted with mesh products from different manufacturers suffered complications such as bleeding, pain, inability to have sex, and infection among others. Further, reports of the product "eroding" into other organs often requires a revision surgery as a remedy.
The Mentor Ob Tape device was implanted in an effort to treat Ms. Taylor's SUI, a medical condition in which the patient cannot control their bladder during different types of body stress such as sneezing or coughing. Taylor alleged the product had eroded into her body causing infections, pain, incontinence and multiple surgical procedures.
Recently, J&J offered a partial settlement to plaintiffs suing over Mentor tape in January. The terms of that settlement have yet to be disclosed.
Paul Coppola, President of Fair Rate Funding, a lawsuit funding firm specializing in advancing plaintiffs money prior to settlement, commented on the verdict: "This decision marks a run of positive outcomes for transvaginal mesh patients in recent weeks. We are pleased juries are starting to see the damage done to these unfortunate individuals and are holding the manufacturers accountable."
