$17M Punitives Levied Against Johnson & Johnson in Mesh Suit

tvmeshA Philadelphia jury awarded a New Jersey woman $20 million after receiving a transvaginal mesh device.

The verdict was the third verdict from a Philadelphia jury that levied an 8-figure award against Johnson & Johnson related to one of their transvaginal mesh products.

The award – $2.5 million compensatory and $17.5 million punitives – sent a loud and clear message to Johnson & Johnson who continues to get hammered by juries across the country for not only transvaginal mesh but a whole host of other products whose jury verdicts are placing Johnson & Johnson in a league all by themselves (huge verdicts and many of them).

The Plaintiff contended that the Ethicon TVT-Secur medical device was defective and that the company failed to warn of known risks, and continued to market the device while they knew about the damage it caused to unsuspecting patients.
