Vaginal Mesh Side Effect Sufferer Wins $3.35 Million Lawsuit; Transvaginal Mesh Attorney Jeff Nadrich Responds
Date:3/6/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013

A vaginal sling recipient has been awarded $3.35 million after suing* manufacturer Johnson & Johnson over painful side effects, this according to a February 26th Reuters article. Linda Gross, 47, of South Dakota, reportedly received J&J’s Gynecare Prolift vaginal sling in 2006 to treat her pelvic organ collapse, a condition that occurs when the tissue holding the pelvic organs in place becomes weak and bulges into the vagina.

As Reuters reports, Gross experienced side effects that included mesh erosion, scar tissue, inflammation and "neurologic compromise to ... structures and tissue." Since her initial surgery, Gross has reportedly undergone a total of 18 surgeries to treat complications from her vaginal sling. She accused Johnson & Johnson – and their Ethicon brand – of failing to adequately warn medical professionals about potential vaginal mesh dangers, and for misrepresenting the product in brochures.

The jury, which reportedly consisted of 6 women and 3 men, sided with Gross, and according to Reuters, an additional 1,800 related cases are set to follow in New Jersey, as part of the ongoing multidistrict litigation.

Jeff Nadrich, a national vaginal mesh attorney based in California, has been monitoring and reporting on the trial since it began. In response to Gross’s recent victory, Nadrich stated the following: “Linda’s recent victory may very well set the tone for the cases still to come, and it sends a message to all drug and device manufacturers. The public has the right to know about all potential side effects, and total transparency is absolutely crucial.”

Nadrich encourages all vaginal mesh side effects suffers to see their doctor at once, and then to contact a qualified vaginal mesh attorney. Litigation is ongoing, and Nadrich points out that sufferers may be entitled to compensation.
