Defective product lawsuit over a hernia mesh patch

Montana patients that make the decision to move forward with a hernia surgery place their trust in a chosen medical provider and also the mesh product for quality, durability and a successful procedure. The healing process of an implanted medical product can be devastatingly changed when a person suffers from its failure only a short time later, prompting them to possibly seek legal action for the painful malfunction. A recent defective product lawsuit over a hernia mesh patch implant continues to move through the legal process as the victim seeks recompense.

Reports reveal that the victim received a Kugel mesh patch for ventral hernias. Purportedly, the mesh was recalled at the end of 2005 and again with updated information in early 2007 due to a faulty recoil ring that allowed the patch to open post surgery, as well as collapse or break under stress, causing severe complications. A person who has suffered from this defective product may make the decision to seek professional assistance.

The company who manufactures the mesh patch has been accused of inadequately testing and inspecting their product. If the courts find the mesh patch to have been made in a negligent manner, then the manufacturing company may be liable for damages inflicted on patients. Pain and suffering might instigate a Montana victim of a mesh patch defective product injury to seek professional legal guidance.

Ailments described in the lawsuit include disfigurement, physical pain and suffering and physical impairment. A person who has experienced internal damage due to product liability may seek compensation for medical and court expenses and financial damages from missing work. As the defective product lawsuit over a hernia mesh patch continues, the courts will determine settlements based on many factors.
