Notice a TV commercial about hernia mesh lawsuits?
A number of law firms have started running these ads, usually during local broadcasts, to inform hernia mesh patients of their legal rights and options. In general, the commercials (or “Medical Alerts” as they’re sometimes called) tell patients who experienced severe mesh complications that they may be entitled to financial compensation (or a “cash award”) for their injuries. That’s true, but the reality of hernia mesh litigation is a little more complex.
What Hernia Mesh TV Ads Don’t Tell You
In recent years, thousands of patients have filed product liability lawsuits after experiencing severe mesh complications. You may have heard about the numerous lawsuits filed over transvaginal mesh patches, products designed to repair muscle walls in conditions like pelvic organ prolapse. To date, over 100,000 patients have filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits, but a similar litigation is now emerging around hernia mesh products.
Over the last two decades, medical device manufacturers have issued multiple hernia mesh recalls, after learning that their products contained dangerous defects.
Which Medical Device Companies Are Involved?
It’s likely that the commercial you saw focused on one or two litigations in particular.
Most commonly, you’ll hear the names Physiomesh and C-Qur (pronounced “c-cure”), referencing hernia mesh patches manufactured by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and Atrium Medical respectively. Some ads also mention C.R. Bard, a medical device manufacturer based in Rhode Island.
All three of these companies have issued notable hernia mesh recalls in the recent past and are now facing a wave of individual personal injury lawsuits.
What Injuries Are Being Claimed?
Attorneys believe that thousands of patients have already suffered severe injuries due to these patches. In medical studies and complaints to the FDA, hernia mesh patches have been linked to horrific complications, including extreme chronic pain, life-threatening infections and adhesions, in which scar tissue growing around the mesh becomes attached to other internal organs.
Many patients have been forced to undergo multiple revision procedures, all in an attempt to correct the complications caused by the initial implant.
Why File A Lawsuit?
Filing a product liability lawsuit can help. By pursuing a lawsuit, hernia mesh patients can demand financial compensation and accountability from the manufacturers of these implants. In a successful civil lawsuit, patients and their families can secure valuable compensation for a wide range of damages, from past and future medical expenses and lost wages to pain and suffering.
