If you suffered health complications because of defective hernia mesh, you could file a hernia mesh lawsuit. If a loved one suffered complications, depending on your relation to them, you could file a lawsuit on their behalf. This could happen if the injured person was a minor or passed away.
Your lawsuit will be classified as a product liability case. In this instance, you need to show that you or a loved one was affected by the hernia mesh in question. The subject of your lawsuit will be the product’s manufacturer.
You do not need to prove that they were negligent, as you would with other personal injury cases. You only need to prove that the hernia mesh you received resulted in unintended health complications.
Undertaking a product liability case by yourself can be a burdensome undertaking. However, with a lawyer from our team on your side, you do not have to worry about anything. We can help you recover compensation for your losses.
You Must Establish that You Suffered Losses Because of Hernia Mesh
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) says that hernia mesh was initially intended to correct hernias in affected people. While many people are able to live with hernia mesh and never experience any problems, this is not the case for everybody.
Some people experience:
- This happens when one’s hernia mesh sticks to the surrounding tissue, resulting in potential health complications.
- Hernia mesh in the abdominal region can create blockages in the large or small intestine.
- Hernia mesh can create unnatural connections between someone’s internal organs and tissues.
- Fluid-build-up at the site of implementation can cause inflammation, infections, and pain.
- Hernia mesh can cause holes or tears in the surrounding area.
- Some types of hernia mesh can shrink, causing a recurrence of the hernia itself.
If you or a loved one experienced any one of these complications, you could file a hernia mesh lawsuit to seek compensation. Again, you could hire a lawyer from our team to help you.

A Hernia Mesh Lawyer Can Help You Secure Compensation

You May Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit
If you want to file a hernia mesh lawsuit to seek the cost of your damages, you must take into account the state’s statute of limitations. This law describes how long you have to file your case.
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 says that you have:
- Two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit
- Two years from the date you discovered your injury to file a lawsuit
- Two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit
Failure to act within this time could have adverse effects on your case. By considering legal aid, you could take the first step toward securing payment for your damages.
