A hernia mesh is a mesh used in surgeries to support tissue that has been weakened by a hernia. Several companies manufacture hernia meshes. Certain hernia meshes have been linked to severe side effects and revision surgeries including Ethicon’s Physiomesh and Atrium’s C-Qur mesh. As a result, these companies have faced lawsuits from affected patients.
If you have had a hernia mesh surgery and have suffered side effects including perforated intestines/bowel, peritonitis, bowel obstruction, sepsis, abscess or revision surgery, you could be entitled to compensation. Many patients suffering from these side effects have filed lawsuits against Ethicon and Atrium for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
