The Finnell Firm

Drug administration mistakes could cause serious issues

When you check into the hospital or pick up a medication from a pharmacy, you trust in the professional diligence and competence of the people prescribing those medications to you. After all, they have years of education, as well as complex computer systems and standards of care to guide their actions. Sometimes, however, these professionals still make mistakes. When that happens, it's often the patients who end up paying the price.

What is "Multi-District Litigation"?

A previous post on this blog referred to a series of trials that will soon take place regarding a "physiomesh" surgical mesh product that unfortunately wound up injuring several patients. These legal cases are subject to what is called "multi-district litigation" and, although filed by various victims around the country, are being managed by a federal court which happens to serve Rome, Georgia.

Trials over surgical mesh to start next year

As part of a nationwide medical product liability case that is being overseen by a federal court in Northern Georgia, several trials are in the process of being scheduled. These so-called "bellwether" trials, which will be the first involving the "physiomesh" product manufactured by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, are slated to start in September 2019.
