Suffering a hernia was bad enough. But you never thought there would be complications in the surgery that followed.
Hernias are caused by a weakness in the abdominal wall. In the past, doctors would stitch together the weak area, which sometimes led to recurrence. More recently, doctors have used mesh products to patch weaknesses and tears.
A surgically implanted, and potentially defective, hernia mesh product has been removed from the market. The FDA has reported that its plastic material is not appropriate for implantation into the human body.
You may be entitled to financial compensation if:
- Your hernia mesh was surgically implanted between 1/1/07 and 6/30/16.
- You’ve since had surgery to remove your hernia mesh.
You may also be eligible for a cash settlement if you’ve experienced the following symptoms in association with your hernia mesh:
- Chronic infections
- Pain (with treatment)
- Recurrence (the very thing mesh products are meant to prevent)
- Bowel obstruction
