Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The resulting verdict in the nations first pelvic mesh trial has prompted national law firm McDonaldWorley.com to expand the free legal reviews being provided to women who suffered complications. Attorneys with the firm emboldened by the $3.35 million compensation awarded for her past and future pain and suffering, medical costs and lost wages feel claims are strong for women who suffered problems (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10).
In a 7-2 vote a New Jersey state jury has dealt a blow to manufacturer Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary in the first case to go to trial.
The jury in the landmark Atlantic City Superior Court case decided Feb. 25, according to HarrisMartin.com, found that the implanting surgeon for the plaintiff, Linda Gross, did not adequately warn of the risks associated with implanting the mesh and that the device was the proximate cause of injury. The judge is conducting a hearing to determine whether she will allow an award for punitive damages.
"The verdict signals to other women that suffered problems that they are not alone, that their needs will not be ignored. It's vital women contact us now to get their questions answered," stated Michelle R. Eddington, lead attorney with the firm.
In addition to helping people understand their legal options, the firm can help victims get funding for revision surgery to remove and repair damage caused if they don't have insurance or other means to pay for the surgery. Women are encouraged to ask for more information about financing options for corrective surgery.
The use of synthetic mesh for repair surgeries has been under scrutiny over the last three years. The FDA, having receiving thousands of reports of adverse effects, issued a health advisory warning in October 2008 to physicians considering transvaginal repair surgeries for their patients.
Dr. Margolis was quoted recently in CommonHealth.org as telling the FDA advisory panel that the use of these implants, "defies core surgical doctrines." and further mesh used in tissue repair procedures has been associated with a number of serious risks including wandering, erosion, infection, pain and perforations.
"Women should know that they are not alone, and that we are standing-by ready to ensure their needs are not ignored," added Ms. Eddington.
Case evaluations are completely secure, 100% confidential, and being offered for women who have had surgical mesh surgery or family members.
