Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

Abbott Law Group, P.A. > Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

Our attorneys at Abbott Law Group are now reviewing claims for people seriously injured by Hernia Mesh Implants made by medical manufacturing companies Johnson & Johnson and Atrium Medical.

If you have undergone surgery for a hernia and have experienced surgical mesh complications, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

What Is A Hernia?

When an organ, fatty tissues or even the intestines push through an orifice or a subsequently weakened spot around a muscle, this condition is called a hernia. While a hernia can normally occur in various parts of the body, it is most common around the abdominal wall. They are generally painful and can at times manifest as externally visible protrusions or bulges. They usually appear after heavy strain for instance when lifting heavy items.

A special medical device, Hernia mesh is used in reinforcing all regions of the abdomen weakened as a result of a hernia. Unfortunately there have been numerous life-threatening health complications. As a result, there have been multiple hernia mesh lawsuits filed against different manufacturers.
