Hernia mesh implants were designed to offer relief from a painful medical condition and provide patients with much-anticipated relief. Unfortunately, many of these medical devices have been recalled for various reasons. If you were a recipient of an implanted hernia mesh that did not perform as promised or expected, our Corpus Christi hernia mesh lawsuit lawyer can help you build a strong case for financial compensation.
If the implant you received was on a recall list or malfunctioned, Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help. We will compile your medical records and other evidence into a comprehensive case file and submit it to the manufacturer and legal and insurance representatives. We will also work with them to negotiate a financial settlement on your behalf.
Common Types of Hernias
According to Cleveland Clinic research, a hernia is a protrusion of an internal organ through weak muscles and tissues. Types of hernias include:
- Inguinal hernia
- Femoral hernia
- Umbilical hernia
- Hiatal hernia
Additional but uncommon types of hernia include epigastric, Spigelian, and diaphragmatic. The hernia you were diagnosed with will be evident in your medical records.
Hernia symptoms include:
- Swelling or bulge in the affected area
- Pain while lifting and in the bulging area
- Increased bulge size without treatment
- Indications of tingling or bowel obstruction
A hernia can be painful and result in bulging and bowel obstruction. Therefore, a hernia should be treated promptly to limit the possibility of increasing pain and worsening health.
The FDA Has Recalled Some Hernia Mesh Products

Recalled products include (but are not limited to):

FDA recalls were issued in response to the following hernia mesh failures and complications:
These are the common complications, and your experience can include one or more of them. Therefore, when our law firm handles your case, we will read and review your medical records to understand the exact nature of your complications and the role they play in assessing your recoverable damages.
Our Hernia Mesh Attorneys Are Fighting for Injured Implant Recipients
When a medical device worsens or complicates your health, you should be able to hold the responsible party — in hernia mesh cases, the manufacturer — responsible for your resulting costs. To ensure you can, we build a strong case by:
- Reviewing your medical records and evidence
- Defining the toll the device has taken on you
- Consulting medical and other experts
- Compiling and submitting compelling evidence
We also handle the negotiation process and will prepare your case for court. Your case may be grouped with other injured parties whose health was also compromised, but we treat your case with the individualized attention it deserves. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we treat every client we represent like an individual and a priority.
You Could Be Eligible to Start or Join a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

You could qualify to file a lawsuit if one or more of the following applies:
- Your initial hernia repair surgery was performed in 2008 or later
- You suffered complications, including intestinal blockages and mesh migration
- You endured repeated revision or additional surgeries due to mesh failure
You also qualify if you would benefit from hernia mesh revision surgery but are prevented from having it due to other medical concerns. Our law firm offers free case reviews to help you determine your eligibility to seek damages.
You are not alone in pursuing damages. By seeking compensation, you join others who are holding hernia mesh manufacturers accountable for their compromised health.
