Are You Eligible For A Lawsuit?
There are well over 150,000 hernia devices that are used in surgery every year in the United States. Many of the most dangerous products remain on the market and have not been removed or even recalled by the FDA. Bowel obstructions and severe infections are some of the common complications related to hernia surgery. The FDA continues to quickly approve untested hernia products, which benefits the medical device manufacturers and hurts the general public. When a product is then shown to be defective, severely injuring thousands nationwide, the FDA is slow to take any action. If you feel like you may have a claim, do not hesitate to call us and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

A Class-Action Suit in Canada
Some Canadian hernia surgery patients have launched a class-action lawsuit against the maker of a now-recalled product, claiming they weren’t warned of its dangers. Patients are speaking out about a surgical device called Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh, which was used in Canada up until last year, when it was recalled and pulled from the market over concerns about higher rates of complications. The device is made by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. It became available on the Canadian market in September, 2010.
Ethicon sold about 330,000 Physiomesh hernia implants worldwide. It sold about 50 percent of those products in the U.S., according to plaintiffs. Ethicon voluntarily pulled the product from the market in May 2016 after it found higher rates of re-operation and hernia recurrence. You can read the full story here.
