Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: The Rottenstein Law Group LLP Notes $1.2 Million Jury Award to Ethicon Plaintiff in Texas

April 08, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
(Rockville Centre, New York, April 8, 2014) A jury in Dallas, Tex. has awarded transvaginal mesh plaintiff Linda Batiste (Batiste v. McNabb, No. 12-14350, District Court for the 95th Judicial District, Dallas County Texas (Dallas)) $1.2 million in compensatory damages after she sued the Ethicon division of Johnson & Johnson for injuries she suffered after being implanted with a GYNECARE PROLIFT TVT-O mesh device. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a national transvaginal mesh law firm maintains a website at and is currently representing transvaginal mesh plaintiffs in pending cases in state and federal courts, notes this decision as a victory for Ms. Batiste, and the tens of thousands of plaintiffs awaiting their day in court against Johnson & Johnson and other transvaginal mesh manufacturers.

Jurors in the Dallas court concluded that the TVT-O mesh device Ms. Batiste, 64, was implanted with was defectively designed. Her lawyers argued that she suffered pelvic pain after it started eroding inside her body. The jury did not, however, find in favor of Ms. Batiste's claim that Ethicon failed to warn consumers about the potential health risks associated with its transvaginal mesh device, and did not choose to award any punitive damages.*

"The verdict in this case represents a victory for the plaintiff, as well as other women who allege they have been seriously injured by transvaginal mesh devices," said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. "We sincerely hope that this decision will be indicative of more to come as these cases approach the trial phase of litigation."

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who believe they have suffered from the alleged side effects of their vaginal mesh implants to speak to a qualified transvaginal mesh attorney to learn about vaginal mesh compensation and settlements.
