Last week the annual shareholder meeting of Johnson & Johnson took place at its headquarters in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Despite the proclamation of approvals and initiation of some recent prescription medicines and medical devices, a large number of injured persons, especially from pelvic mesh implants, turned up at the company and expressed their disapprovals for J&J products. Their negligence has been so bad, that Corporate Action Network recently demanded Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate whether Johnson & Johnson deliberately destroyed the litigation documents pertaining to its Ethicon mesh devices.
Transvaginal mesh (sometimes referred to as vaginal sling, vaginal tape, or vaginal patch) is a medical device used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP and.or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). J&J has been sued by patients for their defective pelvic mesh implants, as these devices have reportedly caused them insuperable pain, infections, bleeding, and urinary problems. The protested crowd requested responsibility for their injuries due to the deficient vaginal mesh implants.
These harmed females suffer constantly and seek justice, alleging that J & J executives were aware that these implants were flawed, but they didn't take any preventive measures and didn't give any cautionary advice to their customers. Teresa Sawyer, a recently married woman from Ohio spoke about the J&J CEO Alex Gorsky and stated that he has hurt her because of her vaginal mesh surgery in 2011, which resulted in tremendous infections, strange immune conditions, and wrecking of her sex life. Sudden shock filled the press conference when Robert Fish from Florida mentioned that his mother, Darlene, committed suicide in 2011 because of the intolerable pain caused by mesh implant she had received in 2008. New updates will come up about this significant pending litigation, as we are in expectance of the Attorney General to decide whether or not he will initiate the investigation against J&J.
