Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Filing
C.R. Bard is actively defending over 18,000 hernia mesh lawsuits alleging that its mesh devices were defective and resulted in injuries and complications for thousands of hernia surgery patients.
Hernia Mesh implants can fail when a patient has a severe immune response causing inflammation and pain, or when coating on the mesh dissolves, allowing the mesh to adhere to nearby tissue in the bowel or other organs.
Who May Be Affected
Hernia mesh is used in roughly 90% of hernia surgeries in which surgeons place the mesh across the area surrounding the hernia, attaching it with stitches, staples or glue, although there are many risks that can lead to serious complications.
Hernia Mesh Injuries
Bard’s hernia mesh devices can cause internal injuries and health complications. The most common injuries linked to defective hernia mesh products are:
Internal infections and pain
Mesh detachment and migration
Puncture of adjacent tissue/organs
Adhesion to tissue and organs
Criteria For Qualification
