Hernia mesh lawsuits claim the medical devices were defectively designed and manufactured and that the makers knew about these concerns but put these products on the market anyways. A hernia is a serious medical condition where the patient’s bowels or other organs break through abdominal openings. The condition is extremely painful and often times the only treatment is surgery and the installation of one of these mesh products.
Side effects of defective hernia mesh include:
- Additional surgery
- Bowel obstruction
- Organ damage
- Chronic pain
- Permanent scarring
Some lawsuits also claim hernia mesh manufacturers have been marketing their products to doctors to unnecessarily treat minor conditions where sutures and stitches would be more appropriate and less prone to complications. Many claims allege the surgical hernia mesh shrank or moved after surgery, causing tears and obstructions to surrounding organs.
