How Do I Find Out If My Hernia Mesh Was Recalled?
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. represent individuals nationwide who have experienced painful complications that may have been caused by several different types of defective or recalled hernia mesh products used in recent years.
Unfortunately, it is not always easy for an individual to determine if the hernia patch placed inside their body has been recalled or removed from the market. However, our attorneys can help determine if you or a loved one may have a case.
In many situations, hernia mesh recalls are never actually communicated to consumers.
While surgeons may be told to stop using a specific type of patch, it is unlikely that any recall notice or warning letter would be sent to individuals who received the hernia mesh, and they may not learn about the recall or design problems with their patch until after severe complications have already been experienced.
In addition, many manufacturers have quietly removed hernia mesh products from the market after discovering a higher-than-expected rate of problems, describing their action as a “Market Withdrawal” instead of a recall. Therefore, it is very difficult for a consumer to research whether other individuals may be experiencing similar problems after receiving the same type of hernia repair mesh.
Regardless of whether a hernia patch was recalled officially by the manufacturer, financial compensation may be available for individuals who have experienced problems following hernia repair that required additional procedures to remove the surgical mesh. It is not necessary to know what type of hernia mesh was implanted before request a free case evaluation, as our attorneys can help!
