Hernia Mesh Attorney in Palm Springs

Injured by a Dangerous Medical Device? Call Now

A hernia is an injury that occurs when abdominal strain causes an organ or tissue to push through a muscle tear. To address hernias, doctors sometimes use a device called “hernia mesh.” Hernia mesh works by covering the muscular perforation and containing the affected organ or tissue.

Although the installation of hernia mesh can be an effective form of treatment, these devices are associated with a host of different complications that can result in severe injury or death. If you were injured by the use of hernia mesh, contact our Palm Spring hernia mesh attorney to learn if you qualify for a mass tort claim.

Hernia Mesh Defects and Complications

Hernia mesh can cause a number of complications to a patient. As in any surgery, there is a risk of device rejection and infection. Hernia mesh presents additional unique risks as well. Many of the risks of hernia mesh use are commonly associated with damage to the bowels, but it is possible for a hernia mesh issue to affect other organ systems.

Complications caused by hernia mesh may include:

  • Adhesion — Hernia mesh can cause scar tissue to form and stick to other tissues, resulting in damage and injury.
  • Migration — Hernia mesh may detach from the affixed location and move around inside a patient’s body.
  • Obstruction — The installation of hernia mesh can cause blockages in the bowels.
  • Perforation — Hernia mesh can tear holes in organs.

Hernia Mesh Injuries and Damages

The complications caused by hernia mesh can result in severe damage to the surrounding body systems. If the mesh needs to be removed, a patient could suffer from further issues caused by an untreated hernia.

Hernia mesh injuries can include conditions such as:

  • Infection
  • Chronic pain
  • Organ damage
  • Allergic reaction
  • Hernia recurrence

A person who was injured by hernia mesh may require further surgery to address the complications. Additional treatment options may include medication and rehabilitation. In severe cases, a defective hernia mesh device can cause death. The victims of hernia mesh complications and their families may incur financial damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and funeral costs, as well as pain and suffering and other noneconomic distress.

Hernia Mesh Mass Torts

Patients throughout the United States have filed lawsuits in order to achieve justice in their hernia mesh injury case. A person who is interested in pursuing a claim related to hernia mesh complications must have evidence of the manufacturer’s negligence in the design, production, or risk awareness of their product. Our attorney can help you prove that manufacturer negligence contributed to your hernia mesh-related injuries.

As a hernia mesh injury victim, or the loved one of someone who was injured, you may be able to pursue a mass tort case. Mass tort cases involve the claims of multiple plaintiffs who were injured by the use of the same product.
