What Hernia Mesh Defects Have Happened?
Hernias happen when an organ pushes through a gap in an adjacent soft tissue layer. The most common hernia involves an intestine becoming pinched by abdominal muscles, but other types of hernias are possible. In most cases involving a hernia, it is caused by another injury or a surgical complication.
A hernia mesh device is surgically implanted to prevent hernias from occurring or reoccurring. Defective hernia mesh devices can fail in one of many ways, resulting in severe pain and potentially dangerous complications.
When a hernia mesh device fails due to a defect, it can cause:
- Tissue adhesion
- Bowel obstruction or perforation
- Hernia recurrence
- Mesh migration
- Severe infection
- Chronic pain
To correct a hernia mesh device failure, corrective surgery is usually the only option. Any time a patient must go into surgery, there are risks to their health. As such, a hernia mesh device defect can technically bring a host of other health risks through surgery complications.
Who is Eligible to File a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?
There are many different hernia mesh devices on the market and used in medical centers across the country. Our Gainesville hernia mesh lawsuit attorneys can investigate claims involving all sorts of these devices and their various failures.

Hernia Mesh Device Lawsuit Compensation
