Why are people suing hernia mesh manufacturers?

C.R. Bard, Atrium Medical Corp, and other medical corporations have released dozens of hernia mesh products containing the plastic polypropylene, the most common material used to create synthetic medical-grade mesh. Though this plastic is often effective in hernia repair, it has been found to create long-term issues due to its lack of flexibility, high adhesion risk, and its tendency to shrink, which has forced manufacturers to recall multiple hernia mesh devices over the past two decades.


Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against these companies due to the serious medical complications sometimes caused by synthetic hernia mesh devices after hernia repair surgery.

How might myself or a loved one be affected?

Defective hernia mesh can cause chronic pain among other problems due to its compromised structure or inadequate packaging.

Frequently asked questions about the hernia mesh lawsuit

If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.

Why do I have to get a follow-up hernia surgery to qualify?

This follow-up surgery gives your surgeon the opportunity to fully identify the complications that your mesh implant may be causing, which would give a potential attorney the grounds they would need to make a compelling case on your behalf. Most attorneys will require the patient to receive a revision surgery before they will take on a hernia mesh product liability case, which is why our team also requires that a follow-up surgery be completed in order to receive legal assistance. 

Which models of hernia mesh device qualify for the lawsuit?

Any type of hernia mesh product that was manufactured with the plastic polypropylene is able to qualify. If you’re not sure if your mesh implant was made with this type of plastic, here are some of the most common hernia mesh products involved in the lawsuit.
