FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Las Vegas, Nev. (September 14, 2018) — Hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the U.S. each year. In fact, over one million people have undergone hernia repair surgery annually. (Source: fda.gov) Consequently, a significant number of people claim harm due to a hernia mesh complication after surgery. For those seeking legal assistance, the law offices of Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys are now accepting these types of cases for review. Those injured may be due substantial compensation for their pain, suffering and other damages.
Injuries Caused by Hernia Mesh Products
Hernias occur when an organ (or fatty tissue) pushes through the muscles that keep them in place. Thus, pain is common and doctor’s visits are critical. Doctors perform various repairs to fix the hernia.
However, complications resulting from hernia mesh surgery are now so common that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued multiple public safety notices and investigations about the risks that hernia mesh products may cause.
Common injuries reported to the Administration include punctured intestines, abdominal tears, severe pelvic pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, obstruction, and perforation.
As a result, those suffering from a defective hernia mesh may need to undergo further surgical procedures to fix what went wrong. If so, a patient would need to take additional time off work. Also, they may face additional medical expenses, medication and follow-up treatments.
Attorney Glen Lerner makes it a point to look after those who may suffer from a defective product,”In my business I see a lot of people that are unfairly harmed by the negligence of others. For instance, those who undergo a surgery to fix a medical condition only to later suffer additionally from complications caused by a defective product. I just want those who have been harmed by a hernia mesh complication to know my team is here for them. We will listen to their story and are prepared to fight to get them any compensation they may deserve.”
