As Hernia Surgery Complications Rise, Prominent National Personal Injury Law Firm Prepares to Defend Victims of Defective Hernia Mesh
Lomurro, Munson, Comer, Brown & Schottland, LLC now representing patients throughout the U.S. who have been injured by hernia mesh
FREEHOLD, NJ – Due to the rise in hernia mesh surgery complications, the injury attorneys of Lomurro, Munson, Comer, Brown & Schottland, LLC announce today that the firm is taking cases involving hernia mesh surgery. Thousands of victims who filed hernia lawsuits have claimed they have been injured due to complications stemming from defective devices. The mesh in question is the Ethicon Physiomesh, manufactured by Ethicon, which has been found to either migrate to other areas of the patient’s body or erode into surrounding tissue, causing harm, or in some cases, significant injury.
“We look forward to helping those who suffer from negligent hernia mesh devices obtain the compensation they deserve for their injuries,” said attorney Joshua Kincannon.
According to Surgery Encyclopedia, an estimated 700,000 abdominal hernia surgeries are performed nationally each year, and in many cases patients experience unanticipated, yet severe complications due to defective devices. In the last decade, defective devices led to several hernia mesh recalls, including the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalling eight different Kugel models from 2006-2007. Since then, more than 3,000 hernia mesh recall lawsuits were filed in the U.S. Symptoms include nerve damage, infections, bowel obstruction and hernia recurrence. In many cases, the damage requires hernia mesh removal, which can often lead to extended hospital stays and extreme pain.
