Suing for "Hernia Mesh" injuries in Nevada

Posted by Neil Shouse | Nov 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

People develop hernias when a muscle tear or weakness allows organs or tissues to protrude through it. If the patient elects to undergo hernia repair surgery, some surgeons implant a “hernia mesh” to reinforce the affected area.

Hernia mesh

Hernia mesh is a screen-like device composed of animal tissue or synthetic products such as polypropylene. However, many patients who get a hernia mesh are now suffering chronic pain and organ damage. In some cases, the hernia mesh breaks and becomes dislodged, leading to hernia recurrence, perforated bowels, intestinal obstruction, sepsis, scar tissue, nerve damage, and/or the need for revision surgery. 

Fortunately, it may be possible for hernia mesh victims to file a negligence lawsuit against the mesh manufacturer and recover "compensatory damages" for:     

The lawsuit could allege how the mesh was defective, caused unnecessary injuries, and had a higher than foreseen fail rate. The patient could also argue that the mesh manufacturer's marketing materials misrepresented the facts.  

Victims injured by hernia mesh in Nevada typically have a two (2) year-window from the date of injury to file a negligence lawsuit against the mesh manufacturer. The patient's personal injury attorney would attempt to negotiate a favorable settlement in an effort to avoid trial. And no ethical personal injury attorney would take a penny in payment unless the patient wins. Learn more about hernia mesh lawsuits in Nevada.
