How Do I Know if I Qualify to File a Hernia Mesh Case?
The individuals who filed hernia mesh suits did so because the mesh product they were given did not work as it was supposed to, resulting in complications. Whenever this happens with a medical product and a person is harmed, it can be grounds for a liability suit. So, if you had a similar experience, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
Your injuries could be due to one or more complications. Pain can be a sign of a complication/injury, so if you have any pain, you should speak to a medical professional, especially if your pain has been worsening or lasting beyond your recovery period.
If you had or have pain or any of the following complications or injuries, you might have grounds for a hernia mesh claim:
- Recurrence occurs when a hernia recurs, possibly due to a hernia mesh failure.
- Infection: Infection during or after surgery can become more likely when hernia mesh is used.
- Intestinal obstruction: The small or large intestine can become blocked from scar tissue due to hernia mesh use.
- Tissue or organ perforation: An obstruction or another issue could damage tissues or organs.
- Adhesion occurs if any tissues or organs adhere to a hernia mesh implant.
- Hernia mesh shrinkage: If hernia mesh shrinks (contracts) within the body, it can cause internal injury.
- Hernia mesh migration: Organic and synthetic products can dissolve in the body, causing pieces to travel and potentially lead to organ problems.
- Hernia mesh rejection: When a patient’s body has an immune response to hernia mesh, the patient may experience pain, nausea, flu-like symptoms, and related symptoms.
