Filing a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit
Kugel Patch lawsuits end after $1.5 million dollar verdict and $184 million dollar settlement. This was a device that was used to repair hernias. A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. Unfortunately, the Kugel Patch was designed poorly so its ring could break and puncture organs. Thousands of problems were attributed to it, leading to litigation and it being pulled from the U.S. market. The Federal Court closed the Kugel Patch litigation after 10 years and final settlement payments.
Atrium C-QUR™ litigation: this refers to another type of hernia mesh product. Many individuals suffered severe complications and allege that the device is defective and unreasonably dangerous. As a direct result, people who had it implanted were required to have an additional surgery to correct any complications. To make matters worse, the Plaintiffs state that the company failed to warn consumers of the device’s dangers. In fact, the F.D.A. (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) found repeated problems during four inspections at the company’s production facility. Consequently, a federal court issued an order to close most of the factory until its manufacturing problems were corrected. In addition, more that 100,000 of their mesh devices were later recalled.

Here is an example of such a lawsuit: A Florida man sues hernia mesh manufacturer Atrium over a blocked intestine. The Plaintiff was experiencing severe pain and underwent hernia repair.
Unfortunately, the surgery did not correct the issue and tests showed that the mesh was sticking to his small intestine! As a direct result, he underwent another procedure to remove the mesh and regrettably a portion of his bowel.
