Hernia mesh is a material used to repair hernias. Hernias happen when internal organs bulge out through a weak spot of muscle. Unfortunately, the synthetic hernia mesh used in hernia repair surgeries has been shown to cause complications and side effects. These complications may include chronic pain, mesh movement, attaching to nearby organs, shrinkage, infection, bowel obstruction, perforation, additional surgeries, and more. Because these complications have been so common, many people with hernia mesh-related injuries have banded together to file a lawsuit against manufacturers in mass tort litigation.
While meshes have been used in hernia repair surgery for decades, in recent years, we have seen an increase in lawsuits stemming from these injuries and complications. These cases are often very complex, and it can take years before the lawsuit is resolved. It’s worth noting that no two hernia mesh cases are exactly alike. Therefore, the time it takes to settle can vary widely depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.

The statute of limitations is a time limit on how long you have to file a claim for compensation. The statute of limitations for filing a claim varies by state.
