Johnson & Johnson / Ethicon Class Action

If you've been hurt because of a faulty Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon Gynecare mesh or tape implant, you may be entitled to compensation. Our class action lawyers have brought an action against Johnson & Johnson on behalf of thousands of Australian women, and can advise you of your legal rights and options.

Johnson & Johnson Class Action goes to trial

On 4 July 2017, the trial for the Johnson & Johnson Class Action began in Sydney in the Federal Court of Australia. The class action, which is one of the largest of its kind in Australian history, has been brought by Shine Lawyers on behalf of thousands of Australian women who have been left with life altering complications after receiving Johnson & Johnson vaginal mesh implants.

Shine Lawyers’ claim alleged that:

  • the implants should not have been sold;
  • the warnings that accompanied the implants of possible risks were inadequate; and
  • there was an unacceptable level of complications caused by the implants; including erosion, incontinence and chronic pain.

The trial is expected to run for six months, and marks the beginning of the journey towards justice for Australian women left devastated by these products.

If you believe you have been impacted by a Johnson & Johnson vaginal mesh implant, there is still time to join the action. Contact a member of the Shine Lawyers' Class Actions department today, and we will investigate your claim.
