Hernia Mesh Injuries

Defective Medical Device Attorneys Helping Patients on Cape Cod

The products liability lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent people injured by harmful hernia mesh implants and other medical devices. We understand how difficult it may be to recover from an injury caused by a defective product, both physically and emotionally. Our Cape Cod hernia mesh lawyers also know the pain and stress that an injury often causes for the family of the victim. This is why we have dedicated our careers to helping clients ensure that any people or entities that were responsible are made accountable. Our attorneys are here to guide injured victims through the legal process with skill, experience, and personal attention.

Surgical mesh implants are often used to treat people who suffer from a hernia, a painful condition in which an organ pokes through a surrounding muscle area. The mesh is often used to help repair the weakened muscle area and reduce the chance of a second hernia. The problem is that the devices have also been found to cause unintended consequences, like infections, pain, bowel obstructions, and additional hernias. Some mesh products have been recalled and are no longer available for use in treating medical conditions.

Compensation in a Hernia Mesh Case

If you have been injured as a result of a hernia mesh implant, you have a right to seek compensation from those responsible. Defendants potentially include the companies that make, sell, and market the device, as well as the doctor who performed the surgery to implant it. Our hernia mesh attorneys can advise Cape Cod residents on which parties may be liable in their case.

The damages typically available in these cases include money for medical bills, missed wages due to time away from work, and pain and suffering. In some cases, the family of the injured person may also recover damages for what courts call “loss of consortium.” These damages are meant to compensate family members for the loss of a loved one’s guidance, support, and companionship. In tragic cases in which a person dies as a result of an injury sustained from a harmful product, family members may also pursue a claim for wrongful death.

Retailer Liability

Massachusetts law holds retailers responsible for the goods that they sell under what is called a “warranty of merchantability.” The warranty holds a product maker strictly liable for any injuries that occur if the product malfunctions within a certain period of time.

A person suing under the warranty needs to show that they were using the device or product in a reasonably foreseeable way at the time of the accident that caused the injury. In a hernia mesh case, this may be done by showing that the mesh device was marketed as a treatment for hernias. The injured person also needs to point to a specific defect in the device and show that the defect caused or contributed to the injury. This typically requires expert evidence about the product’s design and production, how it was defective, and how it caused you to be injured.
