Hernia Mesh Lawsuit; Does Your Injury Qualify You?
Hernia mesh is used to lessen the risk of a recurring hernia, or injury stemmed from a previous hernia, as they can, and do, return after surgery.
Various Lawsuits are currently being filed over certain manufacturer’s hernia mesh products, based upon claims that the products are considered dangerous and defective. For instance, one product was even considered unfit for human implantation. Ouch!
Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
These Hernia Mesh lawsuits help patients get the money that they need for medical bills and the psychological effects of having to contend with a defective hernia mesh. These lawsuits would also hold the manufacturers responsible for letting these defective products into the market.
These Hernia Mesh class-action lawsuits also claim that due to said companies’ actions, they will be held liable for any harm that the patients suffered, and money lost because they either had to do another surgery or anything that affected their income.
Recent allegations have come up where there are newer mesh items whose designs were based on the original meshes that have been around for about 50 years. The manufacturers claimed that the new design was better, but people have alleged that despite the new designs, the new meshes were still defective and hazardous.
If you are one of the many who were implanted with a hernia mesh product and have experienced complications after your surgery, you may be owed compensation. Contact us today for help on this issue:
Why Hernia Meshes Shouldn’t Have Been Used
Allegations suggest that one manufacturer, C.R Bard, Inc. has been using plastic in its hernia meshes, which should not have been used in permanent implantations.
Court documents in relation to the lawsuits against the manufacturer suggest that the officials had full knowledge of the materials that were used to create their meshes, as some materials were very dangerous to health.
A warning was registered with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) which detailed that a resin-based plastic used in creating hernia meshes should not be used in medical applications that concern short term or long term implantation in the human body, or even any contact with body fluids or tissues.
