Hernia Mesh Lawsuits in Wilmington, NC
Access the Treatment You Need with the Help of Our Lawyers
The debilitating pain and discomfort associated with a hernia can leave victims disabled and with a significantly reduced quality of life. We trust our doctors and medical providers to provide treatment and care that is safe and effective. Unfortunately, some treatments can lead to serious complications. If you had a negative reaction to defective hernia mesh, for example, you may be looking at extensive corrective treatment and astronomical medical bills.
Patients have been suffering as a result of defective hernia mesh products since 2010. These unsafe products were made by several manufacturers, including Ethicon, Atrium, and C. R. Bard. While the exact defects vary by product and manufacturer, the adverse effects have been similar, including:
- Bowel blockage
- Migration of the hernia mesh
- Product failure
- The need for early revision surgery to repair the failing product
If you have suffered from organ blockage or perforation, or if your hernia mesh has adhered to your other tissues, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our Wilmington hernia mesh attorneys can help determine your eligibility.
What is a Hernia Mesh and Why Doesn’t It Work?
Hernia mesh is a surgical implant designed to repair the internal ruptures caused by a hernia. Hernias occur when your organs or fatty tissues squeeze through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue (fascia). By reinforcing the affected muscle or fascia, hernia mesh can be a practical and effective cure for hernias – but only if it is manufactured and implanted correctly.
Several hernia mesh products made it onto the market and into patient’s bodies despite visible defects, including low-quality materials, inferior coatings that wear off rapidly, and other issues that can cause severe physical trauma in unsuspecting victims.
