Prolapse Mesh Class Actions

If you have suffered side effects because of a faulty mesh implant, the impacts on your life can be permanent and devastating. You may be able to join a class action against the manufacturer and distributor of the product, and claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss.


Shine Lawyers' Class Actions department are currently handling two separate actions for faulty mesh implants - the Johnson & Johnson Class Action and the AMS Class Action. If you believe you have been impacted by one of these products, or simply want more information on one of our mesh class actions, get in touch with Shine Lawyers today.

Johnson & Johnson / Ethicon Mesh Class Action

Shine Lawyers has commenced a class action against Johnson & Johnson Medical Pty Ltd and Ethicon for faulty vaginal mesh and tape implants that have had devastating impacts on thousands of women across Australia.

The trial against Johnson & Johnson began in Sydney on 4 July 2017, is the largest women’s health action of its kind in Australian history. Shine Lawyers has brought the action on behalf of all women across the country who have received the implants and suffered complications.

On 21 November 2019 Federal Court Judge Anna Katzmann found in favour of the brave Australian women affected by these implants. This victory has been a long journey towards justice for Australian women left devastated by these products.

The Federal Court ordered that women who wish to participate in a settlement must have completed a Claimant Registration Form by 4:00PM on Thursday 9 April 2020. Although Registrations for a settlement in this class action have closed, you may still be able to join the class action for the purpose of a Court assessment process.

Please contact Shine Lawyers today to discuss your options.

American Medical Systems Mesh Class Action

Shine Lawyers' Class Actions department are currently also running a class action against American Medical Systems (AMS), another manufacturer of mesh and tape implants supplied in Australia. The AMS implants are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, but have left many Australian women with severe complications.

If you believe you have received an AMS implant and wish to join the class action, contact Shine Lawyers today and we will investigate your claim.
