Hernia Mesh

A hernia mesh lawsuit is a legal claim filed by a patient who experienced severe complications and injuries after having hernia repair surgery with surgical mesh. These lawsuits allege that mesh manufacturers were negligent in designing, testing, and marketing defective mesh products.

Patients who suffered complications like infection, chronic pain, mesh erosion through the skin, or hernia recurrence after mesh implant surgery may be eligible to file a lawsuit seeking compensation. Multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements have been awarded in thousands of hernia mesh injury claims.
