IL injury lawyerWhen medical devices are defective or do not function correctly, patients can suffer serious injuries. In these situations, injury victims may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer of a device that was designed or manufactured incorrectly, and they may be able to receive compensation for injuries or illnesses that were caused by unsafe medical products. Hernia mesh implants are one type of product that has been linked to serious injuries and health issues, and recently, victims have been able to recover compensation from the manufacturers of these products.

Hernias occur when an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the muscle or connective tissue that surrounds it. Hernia mesh is designed to reinforce the weakened area and prevent hernias from recurring. These devices are usually made of plastic, and they are implanted into the body to hold the hernia in place. Hernia mesh can be used in multiple different types of hernia repairs, including abdominal hernias, groin hernias, and Hiatal hernias.

While hernia mesh can be an effective treatment for hernias, it can also cause serious complications. Some types of hernia mesh have been found to erode or break down, and this can cause damage to the surrounding tissues, leading to pain and infections. Small pieces of plastic may cause damage to organs near the hernia, or they may migrate to other parts of the body, leading to issues such as inflammation, organ perforation, or intestinal blockage. These issues can be very painful, and they may result in permanent damage to multiple bodily systems.
