Defective Hernia Mesh
As you may know, hernias involve organs pushing through weak spots in a person’s muscle or tissue. Many patients suffer from hernias in their abdominal wall. Surgeons use the mesh to support the tissue around the hernia, which facilitates healing. Mesh also helps prevent a recurrence of the hernia. Think of it as an extra layer of protection, keeping organs in place.
Unfortunately, some hernia mesh is dangerous to use, and raises a host of complications:
- Failure. The mesh might not prevent the hernia from recurring, in which case you need an additional surgery.
- Infection. Mesh can increase the risks of infection, sending a person to the hospital. Untreated infections can lead to sepsis shock and other problems.
- Pain. Poorly designed mesh can cause chronic pain, making daily living difficult. Mesh can move around and impact nerve endings where your surgeon didn’t expect it to.
- Punctures. Mesh that migrates can end up puncturing and damaging healthy tissue, leading to pain and possibly organ failure.
- Disability. Ineffective mesh might lead to an inability to go about your daily life. Patients cannot work or possibly even leave the house
Some brands of mesh have been recalled over the past decade, but any brand could potentially cause problems for patients. You might be able to sue even if your mesh wasn’t recalled by the manufacturer or the FDA.
In a lawsuit, you can hold the manufacturer liable for selling dangerous mesh. There are several factors which will impact the settlement value of your claim, including whether you needed additional surgeries to remove the mesh or treat damaged tissue. Unsurprisingly, many patients also end up missing work to tend to their medical problems, so there is loss of income as well.
We also consider the extent of pain and inconvenience you have suffered. Hernias can make it impossible for many people to return to daily living, and ineffective mesh compounds the problem. A lawsuit should compensate for pain, suffering, mental distress, and other losses.
