Certain surgical mesh used in surgical hernia repair have been associated to serious injuries in hernia patients including:
• Bowel obstruction
• Chronic pain
Often these injuries require multiple subsequent surgeries to correct.
A hernia occurs when an internal organ, intestine or fatty tissues pushes through a weak spot in surrounding tissue usually resulting in a visible external lump or bulge. When a surgeon repairs a hernia, surgical mesh is regularly used in an attempt to strengthen the repair and reduce the rate of recurrence.
The current hernia mesh lawsuits are based on claims that certain of these medical devices are defective and hernia mesh manufacturers have failed to properly warn medical providers of device defects, risks, failures and adverse complications.
The Gancedo Law Firm is currently accepting new clients who received hernia mesh implants and have experienced infections, organ damage, chronic pain, bowel obstruction, or additional surgeries.
For over thirty years the lawyers at Gancedo Law Firm have championed the rights of injured consumers against medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in the largest and highest profile pharmaceutical litigations achieving impressive results for our individual clients.
Hernia Mesh Implants and Complications
Surgical mesh is generally made of synthetic material though some are made from animal tissue. Since 2005, synthetic hernia mesh products were rushed to market, taking advantage of the FDA 510K clearance process. Many of these quick-to-market medical products have been recalled by the FDA or quietly withdrawn from the market by its manufacturers.
Gancedo Law Firm and other medical device attorneys have argued that some hernia mesh implant products are defective which result in injury and unnecessary surgical repair. Synthetic materials used in hernia mesh implant devices have been found to contract, shrink, migrate, harden, or otherwise fail. These failures can result in migration of the mesh implant, adhesion (scar-like tissue that sticks together), obstruction of the large or small intestine, perforation of neighboring tissue or organs, bowel damage, nerve damage, and the need for additional surgery or surgeries.
Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Compensation
If you or a loved one have had a negative experience or have sustained injuries due to the use of a hernia mesh product, you may be entitled to compensation for:
● Medical expenses (past and future) resulting from hernia mesh-related injuries, including treatment of infections, perforations, chronic pain care, obstructions, and additional surgery.
● Pain and suffering (past and future) caused by the treatment and recovery process
● Wage loss (past and future), if any.
● Loss of money-earning capacity (past and future), if any.
