2017 Outlook into Transvaginal Mesh Litigation
If transvaginal mesh litigation at the beginning of 2017 is anything to go by, the coming year is hopeful for mesh victims.
Last year a jury awarded Sharon Carlino $13.7 million who claimed that she had suffered irreversible damage from Ethicon (J&J subsidiary) transvaginal mesh. Ethicon challenged the outcome and filed post-trial motions and appealed the decision to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Ethicon argued that there was a lack of evidence about past or future medical costs that Carlino could face as a result of her injuries.
Judge Powell also dismissed arguments that Carlino’s lawsuit was over the two-year statute of limitations despite her reporting problems with the mesh in 2007. Instead, the limitations started in the spring of 2013, when Carlino first became aware of the mesh being defective—and when she filed a lawsuit. Before Carlino saw a television commercial about TVM defects, she had no idea that her problems were caused by the mesh itself.
She was implanted with the mesh in 2005 to treat urinary stress incontinence and two years later she complained to her doctor of sharp pains, which required some of the mesh to be removed. Now 2009 and still suffering pain, she had another mesh surgery. In 2012 she experienced more pain due to scarring from the TVM and the prior surgeries she had to attempt removal.
