Unfortunate, traumatic events can happen throughout one’s lifetime. We know how vitally important settling your case is for you and your family to move forward in your life situation. Most recently we’ve helped victims from various backgrounds who were involved in very unique case circumstances.
Through our work we have been able to help victims and their families pay for medical expenses, loss of income, education expenses for children and health and rehabilitation expenses for several years to come. Below are a few brief examples of our recent case results.
Verdict Against Johnson & Johnson
The verdict follows a nearly two-week jury trial that commenced on Monday; February 26th, 2018 till Thursday; March 8th, 2018, which resulted in the Kaisers’ favor against Johnson & Johnson et al. The jury found Johnson & Johnson et al. liable for its defective product for Pelvic organ prolapse repair. The jury found that the Defendants were negligent in the design of Prolift as an unreasonably dangerous product, where Mrs. Barbara Kaiser of Valparaiso, Indiana was injured. The jury found Ethicon deliberately failed to warn of the risks to Prolapse patients prior to consenting to the Prolift mesh implant surgery and sold a Prolift product in a defective and unreasonably dangerous condtion. It is one of the largest transvaginal mesh verdicts in the country.
