A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a Mississippi woman who alleges she was injured after being implanted with two transvaginal mesh devices. The suit was filed on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division, where it has joined dozens of other pending cases in a multidistrict litigation (MDL). Ethicon Inc., Ethicon LLC and Johnson & Johnson have been named as defendants.
The Plaintiff, who is represented by the national law firm Parker Waichman LLP, is suing for negligence on three counts of strict liability (design defect, manufacturing defect and failure to warn), breach of express and implied warranty, fraudulent concealment and punitive damages. She alleges that she was implanted with the Prolift and TVT sling on November 20, 2008. According to the complaint, the device is defective and caused a number of injuries. The Defendant is accused of knowing about the risks associated with the mesh products but failing to warn the Plaintiff, her doctor, or consumers.
