Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Blames Maker for Dangerous Product
A new hernia mesh lawsuit argues that a victim suffered unnecessary injuries as a result of a defective product. This is an MDL case that involves numerous plaintiffs who argue that a defective hernia mesh product caused them severe damage.
The plaintiffs in the hernia mesh lawsuit include men and women who received the Atrium C-QUR mesh product in addition to the spouses of those individuals who suffered damages.
Originally, the C-QUR hernia mesh product was marketed as an effective and safe option for hernia repair. It was also intended for permanent implantation in plaintiffs. The hernia mesh injury lawsuit alleges that the defendants did not perform appropriate testing or research to identify the benefits or the risks of the C-QUR mesh.
The hernia mesh injury lawsuit argues that the product was defectively manufactured or designed and was not reasonably safe for use in hernia repair. Furthermore, the hernia mesh injury lawsuit argues that the manufacturers are responsible for failing to warn the medical community and patients about the potential risks.
A number of different complaints have been associated with the hernia mesh product including recurrence of hernia, chronic pain, failure of incorporation, foreign body response, infection, rejection, allergic reaction, improper wound healing, abscess, adhesion to internal organs, erosion, seroma formulation, tissue damage or death.
The C-QUR mesh product is made from polypropylene but the hernia mesh injury lawsuit argues that the coating on this product did not properly protect the patient from the risks of adhesion and inflammation.
The hernia mesh injury lawsuit argues that the manufacturers are responsible for all of the damages and expenses associated with plaintiffs who suffered severe and life changing injuries because of the defectively manufactured or designed product.
Most patients don’t know the symptoms of a problem with their hernia mesh until they visit with their doctor to express pain.
Fracture, adhesion, and migration of such a product can cause infections, severe pain, and even damage to internal organs.
Each patient who receives a potentially defective hernia mesh product could have different case outcomes depending on when the patient identifies the problems. The sooner a patient comes forward to their doctor, the better their chances of recovery.
Many doctors who have tried to remove hernia mesh implants, however, encounter problems when they see that the product has broken down or become stuck to nearby tissue, causing additional problems on revision surgery.
The Hernia Mesh Lawsuit is Atrium Medical Corp C-QUR Mesh Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2753, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire.
