What is a Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh is used for supporting a weakened tissue section in the body to provide the hernia enough time to heal. The medical professional may either recommend a permanent, non-absorbable hernia mesh or a temporary, absorbable one. 

Common Hernia Mesh Complications in Florida

These are a few prevalent complications from defective hernia mesh:

Hernia Mesh Lawsuits in Florida

You probably have several questions regarding the current ongoing litigation for hernia mesh injuries. At present, there is no class action lawsuit for hernia mesh injuries. The claims are being filed on an individual basis. Pertaining to this, mass torts have been established to expedite the pretrial process and encourage settlement negotiations. 

There are existing multidistrict litigations (MDL) against Davol/Bard and Atrium, and any new legal complaint may get consolidated with it. MDL has the added advantage of the cases being overseen by a single district judge. Join the thousands that have already filed a suit against large companies for negligently allowing defective hernia meshes to go on the market.
