Harm & Complications Caused by Hernia Meshes
A hernia mesh device is meant to support and protect an area of the body
that has experienced a hernia by being implanted into the patient. If
a hernia mesh device is designed poorly or improperly implanted during
surgery, it could eventually cause significant health problems for the
patient. Some issues are caused by the hernia meshes ripping or moving,
and others are caused by the mesh device failing to complete its intended function.
Complications reported with failed hernia mesh devices include:
- Severe abdominal pain
- Infection around the hernia site
- Hernia recurrence
- Additional surgery in case of recurrence
- Organ perforation
- Internal bleeding
- Wrongful death
If it is found that the patient is owed compensation, any amount offered
should consider the cost of further treatment and the treatment costs
accrued when the device was first implanted. Our
Greenville defective medical device attorneys will approach the situation with a settlement in mind, as this generally
rewards our clients quicker than litigation. However, if it is clear that
you are not going to be offered a fair settlement amount from the liable
party – either a hospital, physician, or hernia mesh manufacturer
– we will not back down. Our professionals are always ready for
a courtroom battle if it means making our clients’ lives comfortable again.
