Do I Qualify for a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?

Hernia‌ ‌mesh‌ ‌is‌ ‌an‌ ‌implanted,‌ ‌non-reactive‌ ‌plastic‌ ‌shield‌ used to repair hernias. It adds ‌strength‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌surgical‌ ‌site‌ ‌during‌ ‌healing‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ hernia doesn’t occur again.  ‌ ‌However,‌ ‌some‌ ‌of‌ ‌these‌ ‌meshes‌ ‌are‌ ‌defective‌ ‌or‌ ‌poorly‌ designed,‌ ‌which‌ ‌can‌ ‌lead‌ ‌to‌ ‌complications. ‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌have‌ ‌been injured because of an implanted hernia mesh, the legal team at Lassiter ‌Law‌ ‌of‌ ‌Houston,‌ ‌Texas‌ can help you get compensation.

What‌ ‌injuries‌ ‌result‌ ‌from‌ ‌hernia‌ ‌mesh?

If‌ ‌a‌ ‌defective‌ ‌mesh‌ ‌is‌ ‌used‌ ‌to‌ ‌repair‌ ‌a‌ ‌hernia,‌ ‌this‌ ‌can‌ lead to a ‌perforation‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌organs,‌ ‌‌infection,‌ ‌bowel‌ ‌obstruction,‌ ‌or‌ ‌failure‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌ mesh‌. ‌ ‌All‌ ‌of‌ ‌these‌ ‌injuries‌ ‌can‌ lead to another ‌surgery‌ ‌and‌ ‌even‌ ‌after‌ ‌this‌ ‌is‌ ‌done,‌ ‌you may still experience‌ ‌pain. We have over‌ ‌twenty‌ ‌years‌ ‌of‌ ‌experience‌ ‌dealing‌ ‌with‌ ‌injury‌ ‌cases‌ ‌like‌ ‌hernia‌ ‌mesh‌ ‌failure.

What‌ ‌types‌ ‌of‌ ‌compensation‌ ‌can‌ ‌I get in my‌ ‌lawsuit?

There‌ ‌are‌ ‌many‌ ‌expenses‌ ‌that‌ ‌are‌ ‌associated‌ ‌with hernia mesh failure in which you‌ ‌can be compensated for. ‌ ‌These‌ ‌include‌ ‌medical‌ ‌and‌ ‌surgical‌ ‌expenses,‌ ‌lost‌ ‌

income,‌ ‌pain‌ ‌and‌ ‌suffering,‌ and ‌even‌ ‌punitive‌ ‌damages. ‌ ‌The compensation you get will depend on ‌the‌ ‌severity‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌injury,‌ ‌the‌ ‌amount‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌related‌ expenses related to your injury, ‌the‌ ‌type‌ ‌of‌ ‌mesh‌ ‌used,‌ ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌these‌ ‌injuries‌ ‌impacted‌ ‌your‌ ‌life. ‌
