Do I Have a Hernia Mesh Injury Claim?
If you have undergone hernia repair surgery involving mesh implant products and have suffered serious complications, you are probably wondering if you have a valid injury claim. We recognize that if you suffered serious health complications caused by a defective hernia mesh product, you may have endured unnecessary pain and considerable financial difficulties. Surgical repair products approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be implanted into patients should not cause significant harm to those patients. Most patients that have filed lawsuits against manufacturers of hernia mesh products have based their claim on one or more of the below reasons:
- Defective design of the hernia implant;
- Manufacturing defects associated with the hernia mesh; and
- Failure to warn patients and their surgeons about any known risks of complications or implant defects.

Before having your defective hernia mesh removed, it is important to make the appropriate arrangements with your surgeon to preserve the mesh. We also recommend consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney before having mesh revision or removal surgery to ensure that all the appropriate steps are taken to preserve the mesh. This can be critical if you decide to pursue a lawsuit against the mesh manufacturer thereafter. According to the American Bar Association (ABA), preserving evidence in a product liability lawsuit, such as a defective hernia mesh claim, is crucial. Sometimes, courts set specific rules on how medical implant products are handled after being removed in case future lawsuits are pursued. For instance, the court in the Physiomesh case designated Steelgate Inc., a medical specimen storage company, to preserve and safe-keep all Pysiomesh implants. The court even established guidelines for patients and attorneys on shipping and handling the hernia mesh specimens.

One of the key factors of accurately evaluating your claim is determining the types and extent of the damages you have suffered. It is crucial for victims of defective hernia mesh products to validate the scope of their injuries through medical records and other proof of damages. Various factors influence how much compensation you could receive such as your overall health before the hernia repair surgery, age, occupation, the types of complications you suffered, the duration of complications, the extensiveness of your treatment, whether or not revision surgery was able to completely resolve your related injuries and if further treatment or surgery are needed.
