Johnson & Johnson in Hot Water Over Defective Medical Devices

Johnson & Johnson in Hot Water Over Defective Medical Devices

The popular company, Johnson & Johnson, is not just battling in court over their talcum powder. Most recently, a federal jury in Texas has ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay out $500 million to five plaintiffs after major medical issues with their hip implants. According to the Wall Street Journal, the plaintiffs were awarded $360 million in punitive damages as well as $140 million in compensatory damages. The two-month trial over a defective metal hip implant ended badly for Johnson & Johnson. This is just one of many trials that the billion dollar pharmaceutical company must face. The household brand name we all know is now gaining a bad reputation that may be forever irreversible.
