Hernia Mesh Claims: What You Need to Know

Hernia Mesh Claim - Hernia Mesh Injuries - Riddle & BrantleyPatients have filed thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits seeking compensation for serious side effects and complications following surgery. Recent studies show some hernia mesh implants can cause serious complications as well as side effects in patients. In some cases, the mesh can do more harm than good.

There is not a one-size-fits-all approach when repairing hernias because all patients’ bodies are different. The manufacturers of hernia mesh implants create different designs to improve the odds of a successful hernia repair without complications. However, serious complications and side effects from hernia mesh implants are common.

Almost one-third of the people who undergo hernia surgeries will experience some type of complication, with excessive pain being the most frequent complaint.

Hernia mesh injuries and complications include:

  • Adhesion
  • Excessive pain
  • Mesh migration
  • Abdominal infection
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Bowel perforation
  • Tearing
  • Hernia mesh rejection
  • Hernia recurrence
