Johnson and Johnson in court, Victims will get compensation of 1.22 crores
American pharmaceutical and consumer packaged company Johnson & Johnson will now have to pay the patients on the basis of the compensation set by the Government of India. Johnson & Johnson had questioned the government’s compensation formula after complaints of poor hip implant and filed a petition in the Supreme Court. Now the Supreme Court has rejected all petitions. The Supreme Court has said that the compensation for the victims of Rs. 3 lakh to Rs. 1.22 crore is correct. Explain that more than 14 thousand people have affected due to poor equipment used in hip implants.
Benefit to all people
The court has instructed the government to tell more and more people about this compensation. So that the number of patients affected in the process of hip implant can be compensate for them.
Let me tell you that the government had prepared a compensation formula based on a committee formed in this case. But Johnson and Johnson had objected to it saying that the government did not take any opinion from the company about the compensation formula.
