Compensation for Hernia Mesh Patients

Hernia mesh devices like Ethicon’s Physiomesh, Atrium’s C-Qur mesh device and many others can cause a number of serious complications, including the need for a hernia revisions, mesh migration, mesh shrinkage, bowel obstruction and even hernia recurrence.

If you were implanted with a hernia mesh device in the past, and you have since suffered one or more severe side effects as a result, you may be eligible for significant compensation from the manufacturer.

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Information

In 2011, C.R. Bard agreed to pay $184 million to settle more than 3,000 Hernia Mesh lawsuits.

As more information comes to light about the potential for hernia mesh devices to cause devastating side effects in patients, more and more hernia mesh recipients are pursuing legal claims against Ethicon, C.R. Bard and other mesh manufacturers, alleging that the companies failed to adequately warn about the potential risks associated with their products.

In 2010, for example, plaintiff Christopher Thorpe was awarded $1.5 million in the second Kugel hernia mesh bellwether case to go to trial, after his mesh device, manufactured by C.R. Bard, broke inside his body, causing serious internal injuries.

The following year, C.R. Bard agreed to pay $184 million to settle more than 3,000 lawsuits alleging complications from its hernia mesh products. More recently, a lawsuit filed in April 2016 by a man from Illinois, included allegations that side effects of his Physiomesh device caused him to suffer an infection, two abscesses and an intestinal fistula. In September 2016, a woman from Florida filed a Physiomesh lawsuit against Ethicon, alleging that the hernia mesh device blocked her intestines and became embedded in her abdominal wall, causing her chronic pain and other injuries.
