How long have you worked at Boesen Law?

I’ve worked with Boesen Law for nearly 7 years now!

Describe a fun memory/experience you have had since working here.

It’s hard to pick just one. I’d have to say that one of my fondest memories was having a Chips n Guac birthday party that also had cake too!

What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field?

My falling into the legal field was by fate. I had relocated from another state (yes, I’m a transplant!) and needed a chance. The rest is history!

What do you like most about working in your position and why?

I enjoy problem solving. A lot of what we do everyday involves fixing an issue or helping someone. It is very heartwarming when you can put a smile on someone’s face who may not otherwise have been able to help themselves.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I spend a lot of time gardening, walking outside with my family, and improving my home.

Favorite Food, Favorite TV show/movie, Favorite Quote

Food: Pho and Sushi, Favorite Show: Archer, Favorite Quote: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Best piece of (general) advice received?

Never say “Just”. A wise man and wealthy entrepreneur once shared this with me. You never “just” do something. Everything you do is important.[:]

$41 Million Dollar Verdict Issued in Pelvic Mesh Lawsuit

[:en]A jury ruled in favor of a Pennsylvania woman to the tune of $41 million dollars yesterday. The woman claimed that her pelvic mesh developed by medical device company Ethicon caused her severe discomfort and other injuries. Ethicon is a subsidiary company of Johnson & Johnson.

What is a pelvic mesh?

A pelvic mesh is a medical device designed to help with involuntary urination.

Is this lawsuit the first of its kind to be heard?

Unfortunately, no. The legal representation working on Mrs. Emmett’s case has also won six other verdicts in the multi-million dollar range to date.

What is the lawsuit based on?

Suzanne Emmett, the woman who filed the lawsuit, had to undergo numerous surgeries to address injuries and pain relating to the mesh according to an article posted by Philly.com. In addition to the pain and discomfort, Mrs. Emmett’s attorneys also claimed that Johnson & Johnson was aware of the failure rate of their pelvic mesh, but chose not to reveal that information to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

What is Johnson & Johnson’s response?

The company released a statement saying that they stand by the quality of their product and are planning to appeal the verdict.

I have been injured by a pelvic mesh product. What are my options?

If you or a loved one have been injured by a pelvic mesh product contact our office at (303)-999-9999 or (303)-835-9342 to schedule a free consultation and speak with one of our experienced attorneys. Please also visit our website here for additional information.[:]
