Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

Hernia mesh devices have been associated with design defects that could lead to revision surgeries and life-threatening complications. Lawsuits against hernia mesh claim the medical devices are defective in design and manufacturers have failed to properly warn medical providers of the serious complications and device failures. We are offering free case reviews to those who received a hernia mesh surgery and have experienced additional organ damage, surgeries, infections, bowel obstruction and/or chronic pain.

Many of the hernia mesh products on the market were rushed to the market using an FDA clearance process. This process allowed the mesh to be manufactured and marketed with little to no studies about the safety of the device. Many of these devices have been silently withdrawn from the market or recalled.

Common side effects in mesh recipients are permanent nerve damage, infections, intestinal obstructions/adhesions, hernia relapse, revision surgery and removal of the mesh.

Hernia mesh devices contain design defects and undisclosed or under-disclosed risks such as: excessive mesh and tissue contraction; tendency of the mesh to migrate, shrink, or turn into a hardened ball or mass; excess foreign body reaction and rejection of the mesh in the body.
