Hernia Mesh Lawsuit
The Hernia Mesh is a medical device designed to repair ventral hernias in cases where the stomach muscles cannot withstand the manual stitching necessary for hernia-repair surgery. The mesh is placed between the intestines and the stomach lining in order to keep the intestines in their original position.

The most concerning issue is with the device’s memory recoil ring, a hard plastic mechanism with sharp edges designed to keep the patch open after implantation. Reports suggest that under stress in the stomach the ring can break, causing punctures to internal organs and serious subsequent injuries, including bowel obstruction, bowel perforation, chronic intestinal fistulae and dangerous infections. Symptoms of these conditions may include unexplained, persistent abdominal pain, fever or tenderness at the surgical site.
The injuries we are looking for are cases in which a mesh explant and/or a revision surgery has taken place or has been recommended but contraindicated due to medical reasons. We are also accepting cases where individuals with defective hernia mesh implants sought medical attention for any injuries related to the mesh implant, such as infections, wound VAC’s, pain management treatments, nerve ablations, and nerve block injections.
If you or someone you know has experienced complications stemming from any of these Hernia Mesh products, contact one of our attorneys today. You may be entitled to compensation for unpaid medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and a loss of quality of life because of complications related to these dangerous hernia repair devices.
