Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Lawyer
A hernia can cause severe pain and dysfunction in the body, requiring surgery to remedy the problem. Unfortunately, many patients have sustained severe injuries that were caused by the use of a hernia mesh to repair their hernia. This is not an isolated problem. A few of the largest medical device manufacturers have sold defective mesh products, causing extensive injuries in thousands of patients. If you are one of these victims, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
The hernia mesh was designed to help contain the movement of organs that push through cavity walls, causing a hernia. Surgical mesh is used in many different procedures and can be safe and effective. It is only certain mesh products that have been linked to serious injuries. It is believed that some of these products were not properly tested for safety and were fast-tracked through the FDA-approval process. Due to the greed of the manufacturers, thousands of people have suffered through pain, infection and subsequent surgeries due to the defective mesh used in their hernia surgery.
Complications Caused by Defective Hernia Mesh
There are various complications that have been linked to certain mesh products used in hernia surgeries. Some of the reported injuries and complications caused by defective hernia mesh products include:
- Severe infections
- Internal blockages
- Chronic pain
- Perforation of organs
- Abscesses and adhesions
- Foreign body reactions and rejections
- Revision surgeries
Some of the companies that have been accused of selling inferior and unsafe hernia mesh products include Maquet, C.R. Bard, Davol and Ethicon (a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary). These companies have made millions of dollars at the expense of patients suffering from poorly designed medical products.
