If You’ve Been Injured by a Bard Hernia Mesh Device, the Time to Act is Now!

By Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo Plotkin & Hellman LLP

If you or a loved one have been injured by a CR Bard hernia mesh device, the time to act is now. With 12,000 lawsuits against Bard already filed, the time to file a claim for damages is running out. 

CR Bard has been the leading manufacturer of hernia mesh devices for the last two decades.  The New Jersey based company has faced thousands of lawsuits claiming their devices have caused permanent and serious damage to internal organs and in many cases, required further surgery to remove the defective medical device.

These new mesh implants are made out of a special type of plastic called polypropylene and that plastic mesh is covered with a coating designed to prevent to create a barrier and prevent the mesh from attaching to nearby organ tissue. Unfortunately, the design of Bard’s hernia mesh implants had flaws that caused serious complications and adverse health consequences for many patients.

Instead of being inert biologically inert inside the body, the material and/or coating in Bard’s mesh devices were incompatible with the immune system in some patients which leads to a ton of health problems.

After the mesh was implanted, many patients would have a severe immune response causing inflammation and pain. In other cases, the coating on the mesh would dissolve allowing the mesh to adhere to nearby tissue in the bowel or other organs.

Bard’s hernia mesh devices can cause internal injuries and/or health complications. The most common injuries linked to defective hernia mesh products:

  • Internal infections and pain
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Mesh detachment and migration
  • Puncture of adjacent tissue/organs
  • Adhesion to tissue and organs

If you or a loved one have experienced one of these injuries after a Bard hernia mesh was implanted, call us immediately for a free initial consultation.
