Hernia mesh is an implanted, non-reactive plastic shield used in the surgical repair of hernias. It is used to add strength to the surgical site during healing so that the hernia does not recur. However, some of these meshes are defective or poorly designed, which can lead to post-operative complications. If you have been injured by an implanted hernia mesh, call Lassiter Law of Houston, Texas and find out how you may be compensated for the pain and expenses of your injury.
What Injuries Result from Hernia Mesh?
Using a defective mesh to repair a hernia can result in the perforation of organs, migration from the place of implant, infection, bowel obstruction, or failure of the mesh itself – all of which can result in a second surgery. But even after this is done, there may still be pain. Lassiter Law of Houston, Texas has over twenty years of experience dealing with injury cases – like those involving hernia mesh failure – and is dedicated to winning you the best possible compensation.
What Types of Compensation Can I recover in This Type of Lawsuit?
There are many expenses associated with hernia mesh failure and you can recover compensation for them. These include medical and surgical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and sometimes even punitive damages. Compensation depends on the severity of the injury, the amount of the related expenses, the type of mesh used, and how the injuries impacted your life. At Lassiter Law of Houston, Texas, we will use our knowledge to get you the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
