West Virginia Hernia Mesh Injury Claim FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Hernia Mesh Injury Lawsuits and Settlements in WV

One of the most commonly used tools surgeons use to repair a person’s hernia is with a mesh used to close an opening in the abdominal wall. However, we know now that defective hernia mesh implants can cause serious long-term complications and side effects for patients. If you’ve been injured by hernia mesh, an attorney at West Law Firm can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

What exactly does hernia mesh do?

When someone has a hernia, it means that part of their intestine protrudes through a hole in their abdominal wall. Sometimes a person suffers no immediate effects from a hernia, but serious complications can develop.

The most commonly used method to repair a hernia involved using a mesh surgically implanted to cover the hole in the abdominal wall to prevent another hernia from occurring.

What happens with faulty hernia meshes?

Some of the most common injuries from a hernia mesh implant include:

  • Severe and chronic abdominal pain
  • Perforation of organs and internal tissue
  • Recurrence of hernia after surgery
  • Infections
  • Bowel obstructions

Do you have a West Virginia hernia mesh claim?

When we talk to clients about whether they have a claim, we are going to examine four things:

  1. Were you owed a duty of care by a healthcare provider or a mesh implant manufacturer?
  2. Was the duty of care breached or deviated from due to their actions or inaction?
  3. Did you sustain injuries as a result of this breach of care?
  4. Are the injuries you sustained quantifiable in terms of money?
