Experienced Medical Product Liability Attorneys—Hernia Mesh
If you’ve had surgery to repair a hernia in the past few years, or even as long ago as the late 1980s, there’s a chance that a surgical mesh was implanted as part of the process. The mesh is a loosely woven sheet that may be made from organic or inorganic materials, and that may dissolve over a period of time or may be permanent. You may have had mesh implanted in a laparoscopic procedure or in what is known as “open repair.” The mesh is designed to reinforce weakened or damaged tissue, and to minimize the risk of a recurrence of the hernia.
The implantation of hernia mesh has been linked to a number of adverse health complications, including infection, bowel obstruction, severe pain, perforation of internal organs, adhesion and mesh failure (leading to recurring hernias). The FDA has received reports of injuries caused by mesh shrinkage, as well as movement or migration of mesh after surgery. As a consequence, a number of surgical mesh products have been subject to recall.
Do You Have a Claim?
Our experienced lawyers will carefully review your case, looking at medical records and gathering evidence to support a claim for damages. To qualify for a consultation with our experienced team, you must show the following:
- You’ve had at least two or more hernia repair surgeries using surgical mesh (either implant or explant)
- At least one of the surgeries was done after January 1, 2010
We will make exceptions to the following conditions if:
- You have a second hernia mesh surgery scheduled, with a specific date and location
- You have medical records that document that the mesh implanted was either Physiomesh or C-QUR mesh
- Your doctor will testify that he/she believes that a hernia mesh implantation has caused you injury, but also believes that the mesh cannot be removed without the potential for serious injury
