Hernia Mesh Lawsuits

Hernia Mesh Attorneys Serving Virginia

Hernia mesh devices or patches are typically made from animal flesh or a polypropylene compound. The device is surgically implanted under or over a weakness or small tear in a patient’s abdominal wall, holding the intestines in place until the risk of hernia dissipates or the wound heals. In recent years, there have been many reports of hernia mesh devices failing to cling to the patient’s abdominal wall, either sliding out of place or coming apart. The result of some of these device failures have been quite serious.

In light of the dangers and high rate of device failure, many pharmaceutical companies that manufactured such hernia mesh patches, including Johnson & Johnson, have recalled the devices. The Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh is one such device that has been removed from the market. Patients who have suffered due to a failing hernia mesh device may have the option to file a product liability claim in pursuit of fair compensation.

Contact Kalfus & Nachman PC and our Virginia hernia mesh lawsuit attorneys today if you think you have a valid claim against a hernia mesh device manufacturer.

Health Risks Caused by Defective Hernia Mesh Devices

Patients who have had hernia repair surgery within the last few years need to be aware that a defective hernia mesh device could be causing them mild to severe health complications and conditions. Not all of the side effects of a dangerous hernia mesh patch will be obviously related to the hernia or surgery. In most situations, if there is an issue, one or more consequent surgeries will be needed to address it, which may come with potential health hazards of their own.

Symptoms and complications caused by a defective hernia mesh could include:

  • Hernia recurrence at same site
  • Additional surgery to prevent recurrence
  • Intestinal blockages or internal bleeding
  • Severe infection around hernia
  • Persistent illness, possibly related to infection
  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Waves of nausea or dizziness
  • Internal scarring

Many patients are not told or cannot remember what model of hernia mesh device was surgically implanted over their hernia. If you are not certain if your hernia mesh patch has been recalled, you should be able to locate the specific make and model of the device in your medical record. Physicians do not need to notify a patient if a medical device they are using has been recalled. Patients must take the initiative and seek this information on their own.

Lawsuits Filed Against Hernia Mesh Manufacturers

There have already been numerous lawsuits filed by patients harmed due to a defective hernia mesh device. Many of these claims targeted Ethicon, the manufacturer of the Physiomesh product, and several have been compiled in multidistrict litigation (MDL). You may be eligible to also file a claim against the company that created your defective hernia mesh patch. Kalfus & Nachman PC and our Virginia personal injury attorneys can help you determine if your claim is valid.
