N.J. Woman Sues Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon Unit Over Vaginal Mesh Injuries, Says The Lanier Law Firm
Date:6/12/2012

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A woman who suffered significant injuries after being implanted with a defective vaginal mesh patch has filed a lawsuit against New Brunswick, N.J.-based healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and a company subsidiary.

Attorneys from The Lanier Law Firm filed the complaint on June 11, 2012, for New Jersey resident Elizabeth Matthews against Johnson & Johnson and company subsidiary Ethicon Inc. of Somerville, N.J., in the Superior Court of New Jersey in Atlantic City. The case is Matthews v. Ethicon Inc., et al., No. ATL-L-4054-12.

Ms. Matthews was implanted with Ethicon's Gynecare Prolift and TVT Secur products during a surgical procedure performed in November 2007. After receiving the implants, she suffered various internal injuries and assorted health problems that persist to this day.

Earlier this month, Johnson & Johnson announced a request filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to stop selling the Gynecare Prolift, Prolift+ M, TVT Secur and Prosima surgical mesh products. In March, the FDA announced that Johnson & Johnson sold the Gynecare Prolift product for three years without proper regulatory approval. The FDA earlier ordered Johnson & Johnson and several other vaginal mesh implant manufacturers to study organ damage and other health problems associated with the products.

The Lanier Law Firm represents numerous victims of defective vaginal mesh implants in the mass tort litigation pending in New Jersey and the multidistrict litigation pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The firm currently is investigating potential legal claims involving similar products manufactured by Bard Medical, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific.

Led by noted trial lawyer Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm is widely recognized as one of the nation's top plaintiffs' law firms, including experience in cases involving dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, defective medical products and toxic exposure.

With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country.
