How is Hernia Mesh Supposed to Work?
If you’ve had a hernia, you understand how painful it can be. Further, hernias can lead to several complications down the road. This is why it is always best to have your hernia treated as soon as possible. In many cases, hernia mesh is used to support damaged tissue around the hernia while it heals. Generally, hernia mesh is attached with staples, glue, or stitches.
What Makes Hernia Mesh Defective or Unsafe?
Not all hernia mesh is unsafe, however, several companies are under fire for using defective or otherwise unsafe hernia mesh on patients. Some examples of defective hernia mesh include the mesh sticking to organs and tissue, moving from one area to another on its own, sticking to intestines, or pinching nerves. These are just some of the ways in which hernia mesh can become defective, and if you believe that your mesh is defective and/or it required at least one additional surgery to fix, you should strongly consider speaking with our firm.
Common Injuries Associated With Hernia Mesh
There are various injuries associated with defective hernia mesh. Some of those injuries are as follows:
- Bowel blockage
- Testicular pain
- Reoccurring hernias
- Perforation of tissue/organs
Do I Have a Defective Hernia Mesh Injury Claim?
You have a right to know whether you have a defective hernia mesh injury claim. If you had hernia repair surgery on or after January 1, 2006, and later incurred issues with your hernia mesh, you may have a claim. Further, if you required surgery to fix the hernia mesh, or you currently require surgery to fix the mesh, you may have a claim. Mesh designed and manufactured by Davol Inc./C.R. Bard, Ethicon, and Atrium Medical Corp. all have a history of product defects.
Recovering Compensation for a Hernia Mesh Injury
As long as we can prove that your injury was directly tied to defective hernia mesh, there is a very good chance we should recover both monetary and non-monetary damages for your injury. Monetary damages deal with the cost of medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages from being unable to return to work due to your injury, and more.
