Published February 26, 2013

A jury on Monday said Johnson & Johnson should pay a South Dakota woman $3.35 million for failing to adequately warn her doctor of the potential dangers of a vaginal mesh implant made by the company's Ethicon subsidiary, and for misrepresenting the product in brochures.

It was the first verdict among some 1,800 vaginal mesh cases pending in New Jersey against Ethicon and J&J and could have an impact on thousands of lawsuits against other manufacturers of similar products.

The lawsuit, in state Superior Court in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was brought by Linda Gross, 47, of Watertown, South Dakota, in November 2008. It alleged that the Gyncare Prolift vaginal mesh was not safe and that J&J and Ethicon were liable, among other things, for "their defective design, manufacture, warnings and instructions."

The Ethicon product, before being taken off the U.S. market last year, was used to treat pelvic organ collapse, a condition for which the plaintiff, a nurse, was treated in November 2008.

That condition occurs when tissue that holds the pelvic organs in place is weak or stretched and bulges into the vagina. There are different types of this prolapse condition, which usually occurs after menopause, childbirth or a hysterectomy. The vaginal mesh was also used by many doctors to treat a severe form of urinary incontinence, called stress incontinence.

Gross, a nurse, filed her lawsuit after having surgery in 2006 to install a Gyncare Prolift for pelvic prolapse. She alleged the surgery led to a variety of problems, including mesh erosion, scar tissue, inflammation and "neurologic compromise to … structures and tissue."

She said she had to seek medical treatment and had 18 operations to repair the damage caused by the mesh.

Ben Anderson, a member of the trail team for the plaintiff, called the jury verdict "a strong statement to Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon that they cannot put profits before women's safety."

The verdict, by a panel of six women and three men, followed a six-week trial before Judge Carol Higbee. After the verdict was delivered, the judge ruled that she will allow arguments on punitive damages. Those hearings are scheduled for Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.

Sheri Woodruff, a spokeswoman for Ethicon, said, "While we are always concerned when a patient experiences medical conditions like those suffered by the plaintiff, all surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse present risks of complications."

She said she could not comment further.

In addition to the lawsuits against Ethicon and J&J in New Jersey, about 11,000 other claims have been filed against a variety of manufacturers of vaginal mesh, according to Florida attorney Bryan Aylstock.

Those claims have been consolidated into five cases that are pending in federal court in West Virginia, according to Aylstock, co-lead counsel in one of the West Virginia cases.

The defendants in those cases are Ethicon, C.R. Bard Inc, Boston Scientific Corp, Coloplast, and Endo Health Solutions' American Medical Systems Inc.

Last year, jurors in a state court in Bakersfield, California, said C.R. Bard was liable for $3.6 million in the first case over the vaginal mesh devices to go to trial. The panel found the plaintiff and her husband were entitled to a total of $5.5 million for her medical expenses, pain, suffering and other damages resulting from Bard's Avaulta Plus device.

Last June, J&J announced that it had stopped selling the vaginal mesh following lawsuits that allege it caused infections and bleeding. On Monday, the company said there were 4,000 lawsuits against J&J involving the vaginal mesh product pending in the United States.

Morningstar analyst Damien Conover said plaintiff attorneys generally pick a particularly strong case to argue first and that the judgment against J&J was sizable. But, he added that subsequent plaintiffs' cases coming to trial might be less forceful, and that J&J, with annual revenue approaching $70 billion, could easily withstand eventual financial hits from the litigation.

"The size of the caseload presents a significant legal risk to J&J, although it's hard to quantify," Conover said.

Conover said J&J has taken recent charges of more than $4 billion for recalls of defective artificial hips, without badly denting the company's share price. He said charges are likely to be considerably less for the vaginal mesh litigation, "So I don't think this is a big overhang" for the company.

J&J shares closed down 0.89 percent, or 68 cents, at $75.57 on the New York Stock Exchange.

The case is Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey, Atl-L-6966-10.

An airplane disaster can affect you for months, and live in your memory for years. Our experienced  airplane crash lawyers provide effective representation while understanding your emotional needs after such a traumatic experience.

When an airplane crash occurs, people try to make sense of what happened in order to deal with the anxiety and stress of the situation. Emotional and psychological trauma results from the extraordinarily stressful event.  This may shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world.  The emotional damage can linger long after the crisis is over and a permanent mark may be left on your psyche. Further, airplane accident lawsuits do not settle quickly or easily thus, adding to your overall stress. For this reason, your choice of an airplane accident law firm is extremely important.

The aircraft disaster team at Injury Lawyers USA has over 15 years of experience, as they have served the needs of airplane crash victims since 1996.

After a disaster of this magnitude, you may begin to have some common psychological reactions such as:

– Fear and anxiety about the present and the future
– Disorientation; difficulty making decisions or concentrating
– Apathy and emotional numbing
– Nightmares and reoccurring thoughts about the event
– Irritability, anger, and occasional outbursts
– Sadness and depression
– Feeling powerless
– Changes in eating patterns; loss of appetite or overeating
– Crying for “no apparent reason”
– Headaches, back pains, and stomach problems
– Difficulty sleeping or falling asleep; sleep deprivation symptoms

Facts About Airplane Accident Law

Airplanes are considered common carriers. This means that aircraft employees are required to use the highest degree of care in transporting you to your destination. The airplane carrier is also required to inspect and maintain all equipment, and workers are required to have the skill to carry out their duties in order to protect your safety. When the airline fails to uphold these safety standards, accidents can occur. The airplane accident lawyers at Injury Lawyers USA will argue that the airline failed to satisfy its duty of the highest care to you.


If you or a loved one has been injured in an airplane accident, seek out a law office that will aggressively pursue your case while providing you with the care and concern you deserve.  As it may be difficult to make decisions during a time of such vulnerability, it is necessary to trust the airplane crash lawyer you retain. Injury Lawyers USA is here for you. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with such issues are available to guide you and help you during this difficult time.

Airplane crashes and injuries can be caused by:

-Dangerous conditions inside the aircraft
-Careless handling of the aircraft
-Severe turbulence
-Negligent actions by incompetent flight staff
-Faulty maintenance of the aircraft and equipment
-Poor flight and airport traffic control
-Faulty equipment at the airport

Many federal, state, and international laws regulate standards for the maintenance, operation, and safety of airplanes. However, even though these laws help protect passengers of airlines, an accident may still happen. Aviation law covers personal injuries that occur aboard aircraft, including slip and fall accidents and wrongful deaths that may occur in the rare case that an airplane crashes. The laws are highly specialized, and the causes of airplane accidents may be difficult to determine.  Our lawyers are skilled litigators assisting crash victims and families nationwide and internationally.

Workers compensation lawyers Of Atlanta Georgia

Atlanta Workers Compensation Lawyers help people injured on the job. The Attorneys are experienced with all job site injuries, Denial of benefits,medical expenses, rehabilitation,and work place wrongful death. You are in Good hands with a Free legal Shield workers compensation lawyer attorney. Some common work place injuries our workers comp attorneys commonly see are:

 

Back Injuries

Back injuries on the job  are one of the most common work-related injuries and can also be one of the most serious. Often a single event, such as lifting a heavy box, will result in a work related back injury. Work that requires repetitive motions like bending or lifting may also cause back injuries. Sometimes, workers may aggravate a pre-existing back condition while they are performing their normal work activities or because of an accident. An experienced workers compensation lawyer can help

 

Most back injuries are successfully treated with conservative methods like medication or physical therapy. Surgery is sometimes required when these types of treatments are not successful. These work injuries can cause permanent disability and an inability to continue working. A workers compensation lawyer can assist with a lump sum settlement.

Some workers' compensation insurance carriers may deny a claim for a back injury because of a pre-existing condition. If your claim is being denied for this reason, contact one of our experienced job site injury attorneys; you may be eligible for workers compensation benefits if your pre-existing condition was aggravated by your job duties.

 

 

 

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD) is a serious work related injury

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and cause permanent disability. A workers compensation lawyer should be retained.

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic neurological syndrome which involves severe burning pain, tissue swelling or extreme sensitivity to touch. RSD develops in response to an event the body regards as traumatic, such as an accident or medical procedure. RSD may follow up to 5% of all injuries. Because RSD can result from many types of injuries—including sprains, falls, or minor injuries—RSD can also result from work-related accidents. RSD and CRPS can result in permanent disability, reduced hours or an inability to perform the same job. You must contact a workers compensation lawyer to protect your rights.

 

Treatment for RSD like fibromyalgia may include medication, physical therapy, psychological support, sympathetic nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulators or morphine pumps. If this injury is work related a workers compensation attorney is required due to many misunderstandings about RSD. Very often workers compensation insurance carriers will  deny an injured workers' claims for RSD. This is a severe complication following a work injury and an experienced job site attorney is required.

 

 

 

Tendonitis is a common workers compensation claim

Tendonitis is usually seen after excessive repetitive movement with which the tendon gradually becomes tighter until the fibers that make up tendons start to tear.  This is common injury for truck drivers, cab driver and any repetitive motion job.Tendonitis is a common workplace injury; especially for workers whose job duties involve repeated movements. Workers whose  tasks include  constant lifting, pushing, pulling, or squatting may overuse their muscles, which may lead to the development of tendonitis. Long periods of sitting followed by movements without time to stretch and warm the muscles can cause tendonitis. The most common tendon areas that become inflamed are the elbow, wrist, thumb, biceps, shoulder leg, neck, knee, ankle, hip, and Achilles tendon.

 

 

 

Stress Fractures are a common on the job injury

A stress fracture is an injury that results from overuse.  When muscles become fatigued and are unable to absorb added shock , the fatigued muscle transfers the overload of stress to the bone causing a tiny crack called a stress fracture. The most important treatment for a stress fracture is rest. Injured workers who have stress fractures should rest from the activity that caused the stress fracture, and only perform tasks that are pain-free  during the six to eight weeks it takes for most stress fractures to heal. A workers compensation lawyer should be called to protect your rights regarding  returning to work and light duty.

 

 

 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common workers compensation injury claims

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition in which nerves in the wrist are compressed. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include a burning or tingling sensation in the fingers, numbness, difficulty gripping or making a fist, dropping objects, and general weakness in the hands or wrists. If carpal tunnel syndrome is untreated, increased pain and weakness can disable  hand function. Eventually grasping or holding objects becomes severely painful and and almost impossible due to weakness. Surgery can become necessary with a long recuperation period. Your workers compensation lawyers will help with,light duty,or change of job until there is a full recovery.  There can be some limitations in work related tasks.

In the United States, carpal tunnel syndrome is the biggest single contributing factor to lost time at work and workers compensation claims.

 

 

 

Catastrophic disasters such as falls ,airplane crashes, train wrecks and 18 wheel truck accidents can cause Traumatic Brain Injury.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can significantly affect many cognitive, physical, and psychological skills. Most traumatic brain injuries result in widespread damage to the brain because the brain acts like a ping-pong ball inside the skull during the impact of a catastrophic  accident. An attorney experienced in catastrophic work related injuries should be hired to assist with this type of workers compensation claim.

 

It is sometimes difficult to understand the immediate impact of a traumatic brain injury, since the effects of this injury are very different in every person. However, a traumatic brain injury will often require life-long medical and psychological care or even wrongful death. Workers compensation law does allow for  lump sum settlements for permanent disabilty as well as well as compensation for loss of a spouse.

 

 

 

Toxic Mold syndrome is a class action . Workers compensation lawyers who deal with lawsuits affecting large groups of individuals at a workplace are usually called in.

Toxic mold has  many lung related  health risks from exposure. There are several different varieties of mold that can cause breathing related health problems chronic bronchitis , heart problems, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple chemical sensitivity, and bleeding lungs.

Knees are also common sites for workplace injuries. While there are four bones that come together at the knee, only the thigh bone and the shin bone form the joint itself.

Lawyers for Benzine Exposure and Mesothelioma

Benzene Exposure has been  Blamed for Causing Leukemia and Anemia

If you have inhaled benzene as a result of your employment for a long period of time call 1 800 733 5342 for a workers compensation lawyer experienced in Benzene exposure today.

Mesothelioma is a malignant cancer of the lining of the lungs, heart, or abdomen that is caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. Many mesothelioma victims are given 8 to 12 months to live.

In addition to mesothelioma, workplace exposure to asbestos can also increase the risk of lung cancer, asbestosis, and other diseases of the larynx, lungs, kidneys, and other internal organs.

Benzene is now known to be the cause of various kinds of acute and chronic leukemia as well as non-Hodgkins lymphoma and aplastic anemia. These illnesses may affect you shortly after exposure to benzene or take years to develop.

Petroleum and tire workers, painters, and mechanics are among the groups of workers who are exposed to benzene both through inhaled fumes and contact with the skin on a daily basis

The toxic chemical benzene is a solvent found in a variety of other chemicals, including most glues, adhesives, paints and stains, plastics, and pesticides. It is also used in gasoline and cigarettes. Benzene is one of the most common chemicals in the world and is a leading cause of deadly cancers, including Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, and anemia.

Benzene Exposure Risks

Benzene is used in so many chemicals and products, millions of Americans have been exposed to it in levels that are potentially harmful. The following products are among the most common sources of benzene:

  • Paint and stain fumes
  • Manufacturing of plastics, detergents, glues and dyes
  • Pesticides
  • Hazardous waste areas
  • Cigarettes
  • Gas Refineries
  • oil rig workers
  • Burning coal and oil
  • Automotive exhaust

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia is a rare, but deadly form of cancer that affects the myeloid line of white blood cells. It causes rapid growth of abnormal cells, which then build up in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. AML is the most common type of acute leukemia among American adults and becomes more common as people age. About 13,000 people are diagnosed with AML each year in the United States, including about 4,200 in children under age 19. AML currently accounts for about 1.2% of all cancer deaths in the United States, but that number is expected to rise as the nation’s population grows older.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is another disease commonly associated with benzene exposure. CLL affects a type of white blood cell called “B Cells” which are infection fighters inside the bone marrow. CLL damages the B Cells so they can no longer fight infection. When this happens, infections can quickly spread throughout the body.

Benzene Exposure Symptoms

 

Benzene exposure can result in the following symptoms:

  •     Abdominal pain or “fullness”
  •     Abnormal bleeding
  •     Bone or joint pain
  •     Enlarged spleen, lymph nodes, and liver
  •     Excessive bruising
  •     Fatigue
  •     Fever
  •     Infection
  •     Malaise (vague feeling of bodily discomfort)
  •     Reduced tolerance for exercise
  •     Weight loss

These symptoms are also often associated with the flu or other common diseases. To determine if benzene exposure is the cause of these symptoms a blood test can be used. Doctors then analyze the blood to check for a specific blood abnormality related to benzene exposure.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and believe you have been exposed to benzene, you should consult with your doctor and inform him/her of your possible benzene exposure. Your doctor may then make arrangements for a diagnostic test. Once you know you have Benzene related exposure comolications contact a workers compensation lawyer experienced in Benzene exposure.
