New Jersey Jury Awards Woman $11.1 Million for Transvaginal Mesh Injuries
A New Jersey jury levied punitive damages against Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, Inc. in the amount of $7.8 million for misleading doctors and consumers about the safety of transvaginal mesh implants. Linda Gross, a 47-year old former hospice nurse from South Dakota had also been awarded compensatory damages in the amount of $3.35 million. A great result for Mrs. Gross and all women who have suffered injuries from mesh implants!
