If you or a loved one has suffered from injuries or complications after undergoing laparoscopic surgery for ventral hernia repair, you may be eligible for compensation through filing a Physiomesh injury lawsuit against Ethicon. Trusting the product had been tested stringently for its intended use, millions of patients were implanted with the medical device. When Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon division learned of the severe medical problems resulting from hernia mesh, the company issued a Physiomesh safety warning and promptly pulled Physiomesh hernia repair patches from the market.
Physiomesh hernia repair mesh patches have been available since 2010 in the United States. Millions of patients require hernia repair treatment each year, and Physiomesh was one of the leading products used in these procedures. Now Physiomesh hernia patches have been recalled due to higher-than-expected failure rates in which patients require revision surgery and suffer long term consequences. Large studies originating in Europe documented the number of Physiomesh hernia mesh injuries, showing this product is exceptionally dangerous when compared to other versions of hernia mesh. Placing their trust in Johnson & Johnson, countless Americans have exposed themselves to a risk for hernia mesh injuries at no fault of their own.
Johnson & Johnson garners annual sales over $70 billion, selling its wide range of health care products around the globe. In the past decade, J&J has recalled dozens of products including dangerous drugs and defective medical devices. Paying out millions in large settlements - such as $72 million to a baby powder cancer plaintiff in 2016 - the company repeatedly has faced the negative implications of its careless negligence to product safety. Individual consumers wield very little power against multinational global corporations; filing a hernia mesh lawsuit is the only way to exert any control as a consumer. Physiomesh lawsuits endeavor to hold Johnson & Johnson accountable for the harm and suffering this defective product has caused in the years it has been in use.
If you or a loved one suffered from injuries or complications following ventral hernia repair, you may have grounds to file a hernia mesh injury lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon brand. Filing a Physiomesh hernia lawsuit serves a dual purpose:
First, if you or a family member has been harmed by Physiomesh, you likely have accumulated significant medical expenses. There is no knowing what problems a hernia mesh injury may cause in the future, or the costs that will be associated with ongoing treatment and care. Hernia mesh injury lawsuits can bring meaningful compensation to families that have been harmed.
Second, filing a hernia mesh injury lawsuit against Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson is the most powerful means for individual consumers to lodge their complaints against a multination pharmaceutical giant. It is a sad fact that often only the threat of litigation and large settlements pushes a company to become a better corporate citizen.
