J&J Loses Another Pelvic Mesh Case

A California jury has awarded Coleen Perry $5.7 million for the injuries and damages she suffered as the result of a Johnson & Johnson Abbrevo vaginal mesh implant.  This was the first case involving the Abbrevo implant, but just the latest in losses for manufacturers of pelvic mesh devices.  The jury found that the Abbrevo mesh sling was defective and that J&J failed to properly warn doctors and consumers about the device's defects.

The Abbrevo mesh sling was brought to market in 2000 for treating incontinence in women.   In the Perry trial, J&J argued that Abbrevo was the "gold standard" for treating incontinence but the jury found that J&J misrepresented the safety of the device.

Johnson & Johnson faces more than 30,000 lawsuits by women who have suffered injuries as a result of J&J vaginal mesh devices. The Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin has been helping women who have had vaginal mesh implants and have suffered pain, organ damage, infection and painful intercourse.
