The Basic Facts About Hernia Mesh Class Action Lawsuits

There have been a number of lawsuits filed that are connected to the installation of a hernia mesh as a method ofhernia mesh lawyers repairing physical damage in the abdomen, upper stomach, or groin areas.
Hernias are very common injuries experienced by many people following years of lifting or overuse of the abdomen or affected area. They are generally surgically removed, which has the negative side-effect of leaving the tissue around the area of the hernia weakened. To counter this, medical equipment manufacturers developed ‘hernia mesh’ products which are surgically implanted to strengthen the post-surgery tissue.
Following many complaints of post hernia mesh surgery complications, studies have been undertaken to assess the effectiveness of these implant products and their roles in these medical issues. It is claimed that hernia mesh products manufactured by several companies are at the source of these issues and they have become the focus of a number of class-action lawsuits against the manufacturers.

Companies that have manufactured hernia mesh devices include:

  • Atrium Medical Corporation
  • Covidien
  • C.R. Bard
  • Ethicon
  • Gore Medical
  • Genzyme Corporation

Various Complications from the Devices

There are a number of circumstances that have resulted in complications with installed meshes. One problem is that they are made with inferior products that may be toxic to the human body.

Infections and loosening of the mesh are common problems, and this results in significant pain and suffering with little recourse other than removal of the device. Even the necessity of device removal can be the basis for a hernia mesh lawsuit.
There are other complications leading to potential damage to other regions of the body, including infected organs and additional surgery is often the only option to stop the development of other serious medical conditions.

Examples of problems victims have suffered include:

  • Perforated Intestines
  • Organ Puncture
  • Internal Fistulae
  • Peritonitis
  • Bowel Obstruction
  • Abscesses and Sepsis
  • Adhesion of Mesh to Bowels
  • Abdominal Wall Lacerations

Potential Damages

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

Additional Damages

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
  • Defective installation or medical malpractice
