Do You Qualify to File a Physiomesh Claim

Those who have been injured by the Ethicon Physiomesh hernia repair composite mesh and have had to undergo a second surgery may qualify to sue Johnson & Johnson for compensation

Friday, April 27, 2018 - Calculating the value of your hernia mesh lawsuit depends on many variables such as your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Each case is unique so it is the responsibility of your Physiomesh hernia attorney to sit down with you and determine how much you have lost as a direct consequence of Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson's negligence. There are strict criteria to be met to file a Physiomesh lawsuit and there is no guarantee that you qualify, however, if you have had the Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Mesh implanted to repair a hernia and experienced complications that required a second surgery, you should talk to a knowledgeable Physiomesh hernia attorney.

Physiomesh composite devices that have failed have caused extreme pain at the site of the implant, internal bleeding, infections, auto-immune complications, organ perforation and other complications that require a second and even a third revision surgery. As a result of the extraordinarily high failure rate requiring the device's repair or replacement surgery, the FDA recommended that Ethicon pull the product from the market. Ethicon issued a "market recall" of the product to comply with the FDA's wishes and concluded that there may be a flaw in the design of the product although they failed to pinpoint exactly where the failure occurs.

If you have suffered through a second revision surgery, there are a broad range of expenses one can sue for but most fall into the categories of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
