Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
We Answer your questions about the law
For many people hernia meshes can be a lifesaver, but these devices do come with some complications that can cause a lot of pain and suffering. Mostly, severe hernia mesh complications occur when a defectively designed product is used, or the doctor makes a mistake during the implanting. Some of the hernia mesh manufacturers are accused of knowing the problem these devices can cause but failed to warn the patients and medical providers.
According to the plaintiff attorneys, some of the hernia mesh products were defectively designed and had been causing unnecessary injuries that would not have occurred in the first place if the manufacturers properly warned the medical providers. They also argue that if the medical providers and the patients were informed about the severe complications and high risks of device failures, they would have chosen to utilize a substitute mesh product.
