Plastic Materials Expert Witness

Problem

A prominent lawyer needed a plastic materials expert to help with nationwide class action lawsuits regarding implanted polypropylene mesh made from Marlex® HGX-030-01. He wanted a Marlex mesh expert who could help him understand the technical aspects of the case and help present the information clearly to the judge and jury.

Action

I was recommended as someone with deep experience and the ability to explain technical concepts in layperson’s terms. I was then engaged under retainer to dig into the details of the case and establish the facts. I immediately began reading all the documents provided and finding scientific publications to shed light on the topic. By identifying and reading hundreds of articles, I was able to determine with a high degree of certainty that the science strongly supported the plaintiff’s case.

Solution

I wrote several Marlex® mesh expert reports and was deposed in regard to the case. I was not only able to establish the cause of the problems but also to refute the arguments of the defendant’s experts. We showed that they used incorrect methods, cited inapplicable articles and contradicted themselves. By explaining the facts simply, and using analogies, we were able to convey the message in a more effective manner and achieved a positive outcome.
