Physiomesh Class Action

We have commenced a proposed class proceeding against Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson on behalf of individuals in Canada who were implanted with the medical-device Physiomesh.

Physiomesh is a surgical mesh which is used in the repair and treatment of ventral hernias. Physiomesh devices are made from dangerous materials, including polypropylene, which break down, leading to bowel obstruction, sermoas, infection, mesh failures, hernia recurrence, and death. These complications often result in the need for one or more corrective surgeries and result in permanent damage.

The action has been commenced in the British Columbia Supreme Court. We anticipate applying to certify the action as a class proceeding under the Class Proceedings Act in the winter of 2017.

If you were implanted with Physiomesh and/or want more information about this proceeding, please contact us.
