Hernia repair using surgical mesh products is one of the most common surgeries done in the United States. The hernia mesh is implanted in patients to close up and strengthen the muscles and tissue around the surgery site. Despite strong warnings from the FDA about severe complications, the companies that make surgical mesh continue to market their products, and surgeons continue to implant the mesh in their trusting patients. Thousands of these patients are experiencing nerve damage, infections, bowel obstruction, the recurrence of hernias and other serious injuries.
New hernia mesh lawsuits are being filed.

Hernia mesh cases are based on a number of legal grounds, including defective design, failure to warn, manufacture defect and breach of warranty. Hernia mesh manufacturers are well aware of the dangers their products pose to patients, yet they still market them aggressively. As recently as 2014, the FDA issued a safety communication citing the many complications reported by patients, yet the surgeries continue unchecked. Based on these factors, plaintiffs are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers for defective hernia mesh complications and injuries.
