National Hernia Mesh Injury Lawyers Putting Clients First Across the Country
Hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and an opening or weakness in the muscle wall. A typical hernia may not be that dangerous on its own, but if left untreated it could lead to worse, more life-threatening health conditions. As such, many people who’ve had a hernia will seek surgery. The patient can often go home the same day of the surgery, then endure a three-week recovery time. Hernia surgeries typically employ the use of hernia mesh to help support and protect damaged tissues.
However, some hernia mesh has been known to be defective, causing injuries, infections, and sometimes life-threatening complications. The FDA has begun to recall numerous types of hernia mesh. But those recalls came too late for some patients, who came to have defective mesh implanted into their bodies. The risks of having this material in the human body can be deadly. If you have suffered injury from hernia mesh used in surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.
What Are the Side Effects of Defective Hernia Mesh?
A hernia can hurt, but the aftermath of surgery could actually hurt worse. The most common complications and injuries following surgery with defective hernia mesh include hernia recurrence, adhesion, pain, fever, infection, and bowel obstruction.
Some other potential adverse events that can occur following hernia repair with mesh are mesh migration and mesh shrinkage. Bleeding, fluid buildup at the surgical site, joint pain, renal failure, holes in the neighboring tissue, pain during sex, and abnormal connection between organs, vessels, or intestines could also occur.
How to Start a Hernia Mesh Injury Lawsuit?
Though the FDA has recalled several types of hernia mesh linked to pain and infection, there are still more patients filing lawsuits every year. If you or a loved one has been hurt by hernia mesh following surgery, a lawyer may be able to help you seek compensation for pain and suffering.
