At Legally Pink Law, we are your Orlando product liability attorneys and
we have previously reported on the unfortunate failures of some vaginal
mesh used in surgical treatment of incontinence and other disorders related
to weakened pelvic walls.
now know that Johnson & Johnson, the maker of the defective vaginal mesh, has
been found by U.S. magistrate judge Cheryl Eifert to have improperly destroyed
files related to the products. Judge Eifert ruled that that the corporation
acted negligently in destroying or losing thousands of documents and files
relating to the development of its vaginal-mesh implants and the lost
or destroyed records date back to 2007.
Vaginal mesh lawsuits have been settled in many cases with awards approaching
the millions. If you suffered from these defective medical devices, contact
Orlando personal injury attorney Carolyn Salzmann today. It’s clear
that at-fault manufacturers are working to destroy evidence of their knowledge
of product failures, and we recommend taking action quickly.
