47-Year Old Nurse Awarded $3.35M in Prolift Mesh Injury Lawsuit

. By
Newark, NJA $3.35 million settlement has been awarded in a Prolift pelvic mesh personal injury case (Gross v. Gynecare, Inc., ATL - L - 6966-10) brought by a 47-year old nurse against Johnson & Johnson (J&J).

During the six-week long trial the jury heard testimony from Mrs. Linda Gross that she sustained serious injuries from the Prolift mesh she had implanted in 2005 to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). Specifically, Gross testified that Ethicon's Prolift vaginal mesh implant has rendered her unable to work, have sex with her husband, or sit comfortably for more than 20 minutes at a time. Prolift, manufactured by Ethicon, a J&J subsidiary, was withdrawn from the market several months ago by Ethicon.

Thousands of women have endured implantation of Ethicon’s Prolift mesh and have suffered serious physical injuries. Worse, many of these women have undergone several additional surgeries in an attempt to repair the damage done by the Prolift mesh and to remove move the mesh from their bodies. These injuries are often debilitating and extremely painful.

Ben Stewart, of the Stewart Law Group, says that he as well as his partners are "working on behalf of more than 3500 women who have sustained injuries from Prolift mesh implanted for Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress urinary Incontinence (SUI) manufactured by Ethicon/J&J as well as C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific and others.

"Our partner was appointed by The Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin, Chief Judge, United States District Court, Southern District of West Virginia to serve on the Multi District Litigation’s Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee on behalf of injured plaintiffs from across the country whose cases are transferred to that Court for coordinated discovery. Our team of lawyers has done exhaustive work to benefit women across the nation,” Stewart told Lawyers and Settlements.
