Update: Kentucky Files Mesh Lawsuit Against J&J
August 17, 2016 - Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear has filed a civil lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson over claims the company used deceptive marketing for its surgical transvaginal mesh. Beshear is accusing J&J of concealing and misrepresenting to the public and medical communities many of the potential health risks with vaginal mesh, according to FOX News.
“The way this company clearly chose profits over people is outrageous,” Beshear said. “My office has talked to victims whose lives have been devastated by this company’s deceitful practices. We may not be able to give them back the lives they once had, but my office will do everything we can to hold this company accountable.”
What’s the Problem?
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Medical Device Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a transvaginal mesh class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members who have suffered serious complications after being implanted with transvaginal mesh.
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual transvaginal mesh lawsuits on their behalf.
