Bellweather Hernia Repair Mesh Trials To Begin This Year

Plaintiffs have their eye on multi-million dollar jury awards for their pain and suffering caused by untested hernia repair mesh

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 2020 is the year that hernia mesh lawsuits will finally make their way to court and the punitive damage awards handed out by juries could approach the magnitude of those in talcum powder cancer, Roundup herbicide, or transvaginal mesh trials. Juries that have been convinced that a medical device or product causes cancer or other bodily harm and that a company has deliberately withheld safety information are holding manufacturers accountable. Johnson & Johnson and Bayer/Monsanto have been forced to pay billions of dollars to plaintiffs that have developed various cancers from using their products that were marketed to consumers as safe. Ethicon Physiomesh lawyers have vast experience handling medical litigation cases and offer a free consultation before filing a claim.

More to the point, companies like Johnson & Johnson are being held accountable for the injuries that women are suffering from the implanted and largely unnecessary vaginal support mesh which is made from the exact materials as hernia repair mesh is made from. There is an abundance of scientific evidence on record at the National Institute of Health (NIH) that has concluded that polypropylene plastic is incompatible with human tissue and can calcify and liquefy when placed within an organic body since it is immediately attacked as a foreign object by the body's natural defenses. This caused the device to break free from its intended spot supporting a repaired hernia, and migrate and block or lacerate other organs and tissues in the body. When hernia repair mesh breaks into many small pieces, multiple surgeries can be required to retrieve the fragments from all over one's torso putting a patient's life at risk multiple times.

Hernia mesh manufacturers will certainly be forced to pay for failing to adequately test polypropylene hernia repair mesh in humans before launching the device on a large scale. Millions of Americans and Europeans have had the polypropylene hernia repair mesh implanted and experts in the UK think that over one-third of all hernia repair mesh implants could fail within ten years and require at least one revision surgery. Doctors and hospitals performing hernia removal surgery are required by the FDA to safeguard the hernia repair mesh and send it to a medical device storage facility in Florida for safekeeping until trial. If you have been forced to undergo pain and suffering and have had a hernia revision surgery you may wish to consult a hernia mesh attorney with experience and a winning track record of fighting in court against large medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies. Faulty hernia repair medical devices and their manufacturers include Ethicon Physiomesh, Atrium C-Qur Mesh, and Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch.

Thousands of plaintiffs that have suffered extreme, constant and unending pain from a faulty hernia repair mesh medical device are waiting their turn in court and 2020 could be their year. There are currently about 1,500 federal lawsuits in the United States against Swedish medical device manufacturer Atrium Medical Inc. that allege "it sold defective hernia-repair mesh implants that injured patients." According to Reuters. Attempts by company lawyers to have the cases dismissed on statute of limitation grounds were recently dismissed and the first bellwether hernia repair mesh cases could begin soon.
