Here’s the skinny on hernia mesh lawsuits.
An estimated one million Americans experience hernias each year. As a result, hernia mesh surgeries are very common. However, about one-third of these surgeries are unsuccessful and result in injuries and other complications. Defective hernia mesh is usually the cause of the injuries and complications, and the most common injuries and complications include infection, mesh migration, and mesh erosion.
