If you or a loved one has encountered medical problems related to the implantation of Physiomesh, a surgical mesh product from Ethicon, you may have grounds for filing a hernia mesh injury lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenses and suffering. Placing their trust in the reputation of the large pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson, these persons have come to learn that Physiomesh was never tested for its intended application in the abdomen. Research from Europe revealed in 2016 that Ethicon's Physiomesh causes more side effects and complications than other comparable products, resulting in a global market withdrawal of the surgical hernia mesh.
Ethicon Physiomesh is one of several available products used to repair ventral hernia through laparoscopic surgery. In use in the United States since 2010, this surgical hernia mesh has been implanted in countless patients. Now these persons are learning they were exposed to a serious health risk, at no fault of their own. Physiomesh lawsuits aim to recover compensation for the harm, suffering, and medical expenses resulting from hernia mesh infection, injuries and revision surgeries.
Ethicon is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, which records annual sales exceeding $70 billion globally. Once a trusted household name for technical medical devices and over the counter and prescription drugs, J&J has recently been associated with a large number of major recalls for defective and dangerous products. There is a danger to the public when large multinational corporations view product liability litigation as a routine cost of doing business. Filing a lawsuit against such a company â€“ and hoping that many others do the same â€“ is the only means individual consumers have to hold such an entity accountable for the harm it has caused.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries or been forced to undergo revision surgery following a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair procedure, you may have grounds to file a Physiomesh injury lawsuit against Ethicon. Taking this action can benefit your family by securing the compensation you deserve for medical bills and suffering. Additionally, filing a surgical mesh lawsuit sends a clear message to Johnson & Johnson that consumers expect more of medical device companies. Companies that prioritize profit over consumer safety must be held accountable. It is a sad fact that often only the threat of litigation and large settlements pushes a company to become a better corporate citizen.
