Compensatory damages for defective hernia mesh devices are usually typical for most claimants, but punitive damages could be awarded in certain serious cases. A hernia mesh lawsuit can result in significant awards for those who are seriously injured from the device, and recipients fall in a wide variety of demographics.
Compensatory elements of a claim may include financial recovery for:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages When Applicable
- General Long-Term Damages
- Pain and Suffering Recovery
Punitive damages may be recovered from a successful hernia mesh lawsuit, and are awarded by a sympathetic jury after a full case presentation at trial. Most cases are filed as typical product liability cases based on specific claims that the device was:
- Defective by design
- Failed to perform as advertised
- Failed to warn of dangers
