Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
Brent Coon and Associates is now actively investigating hernia mesh lawsuits not only in the state of Texas, but also nationwide. In November there were reports that new Hernia Mesh lawsuits were moving forward against manufacturer C.R. Bard. Lawsuits argue that the company did not warn patients of design defects associates with the Hernia Mesh. Victims have suffered extreme pain and discomfort after being treated with Surgical Mesh for Hernia repair. Hundreds of vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed all over the country but few Hernia mesh lawsuits have been filed until recently. The design defect and the failure-to-warn hernia mesh lawsuit claims were based both on negligence as well as strict liability. Plaintiffs argue that Bard knew of at least 9 different Hernia Mesh design defects but failed to warn patients, which is a strong claim in a Hernia Mesh lawsuit. Some lawsuits are seeking punitive damages.
Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh
C-Qur hernia mesh is manufactured by Atrium Medical Corporation and was approved by the FDA in 2006. It is used for hernia surgeries but is also used in surgical wounds as well as chest wall reconstruction. The FDA approved C-Qur via the FDA 210K program which bypasses rigourous pre-market research. It’s uses a fatty acid coating. The 510 approval process is different that the Pre-Market Approval process (which is the process that Essure went through). BCA is currently investigating lawsuits over C-Qur hernia mesh for a variety of very dangerous side effects. Those include, rejection, chronic pain, rashes, infection and organ perforation. The types of C-Qur products include: C-Qur, C-Qur V-Patch, C-Qur Tacshield, C-Qur FX, C-Qur CentriFX, C-Qur Mosaic and C-Qur Film.
Reports indicate that Hernia Mesh lawsuits may be possible if you suffered serious injury or death related to a defective Hernia mesh implant as far back as 2000. The eroding mesh could cause many issues in chronic intestinal fistula. A Hernia Mesh lawsuit was also filed in Madison County accusing Bard of negligence and failure to warn that the Hernia mesh could cause serious complications. It was reported that the Plaintiff in the surgical mesh lawsuit is seeking $400,000 dollars in damages including court costs, loss of income, medical expenses, etc. The plaintiff needed a second mesh surgery when the hernia mesh eroded and the hernia returned. The brands of mesh that are involved in these hernia mesh lawsuits include Bard Marlex Mesh. Our Hernia Mesh Lawyers have represented our clients against some of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Pfizer, and Bayer.
UPDATE: 9/15/16: Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawsuits Lawsuits Being Filed
Brent Coon is currently accepeting inquiries regarding Hernia Mesh Lawsuits based on some recent reports of hernia mesh side effects. In addition to the Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Lawsuits, we are looking into lawsuits over Ethicon Physiomesh Lawsuits Ethicon has recalled the Physiomesh Composite Mesh hernia patch based on 2 studies that indicate there are increased risks of the hernias opening back up an causing extreme pain and suffering to the patients. There are over 100,000 ventral hernia repair surgeries that are performed in the United States every year. A ventral hernia according to Healthline.com is:
“A ventral hernia is a bulge (of tissues) through an opening, or defect, within the abdominal wall muscles. It can occur at any location on the abdominal wall. Many are called incisional hernias because they often form at the healed site of past surgical incisions where the skin has become weak or thin. A strangulated ventral hernia refers to intestinal tissue getting caught (this is a surgical emergency) within a ventral hernia.”
Physiomesh was approved by the FDA without clinical trials. It was not required to go through the more rigerous testing as say “Essure” was. It was approved under the 510(k) application, because that type of Hernia Mesh was “similar” to other types of Hernia Mesh.
