Hernia Mesh FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Hernia Mesh

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. When you need a West Virginia hernia mesh attorney, you can count on the team at West Law Firm to help secure the compensation you deserve.

What exactly does a 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
  • Mesh failure
  • Adhesion
  • Seromas

Which companies are we talking about here?

Some of the companies involved in manufacturing these defective hernia mesh implants include:

  • Atrium Medical Corporation
  • Covidien
  • R. Bard
  • Ethicon
  • Gore Medical
  • Genzyme Corporation

Do you have a 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?

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. They truly care about what they do and they have an amazing team. I will recommend them to all my friends and family. Thanks again!
I’ve worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything happening in my case so there was no need for me to call and ask questions continuously. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend these people.
Very professional, super friendly. They are definitely not your average law team. They went above and beyond my exceptions and received 3 times the amount I thought I’d get.
