Press Release provided by Carl Jaeckel on July 20, 2018
LawyerCentral.com, July 20, 2018 — NEW JERSEY — Warren, NJ – Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now speaking with patients who were implanted with a hernia mesh product and suffered complications that required the surgical removal and/or replacement of the mesh. The attorneys are offering to provide hernia mesh patients with free advice on whether they have a case, and if so, the legal steps they will need to take to seek compensation from the manufacturer of their mesh product.
Over the past few years, hernia mesh patients have filed lawsuits against Davol Inc., Ethicon Inc. and C.R. Bard, among other medical device makers. The suits claim that certain hernia meshes made by the defendants are defective, unreasonably dangerous, and for one product, unsuitable for implantation in the human body. These suits also claim that the companies failed to properly warn both patients and doctors about the alleged dangers of their products.
Hernia mesh lawsuits are seeking compensation for medical costs and lost wages, as well as less tangible losses. Additional damages that may be sought through a lawsuit include compensation for physical pain, mental anguish and loss of life’s enjoyment.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are currently pursuing claims against Ethicon, Covidien, Atrium, C.R. Bard and Davol, Inc. on behalf of patients who needed revision surgery after suffering pain and other complications following the first procedur.
