        Who Is Eligible to File a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?
        Ways to qualify for a hernia mesh lawsuit include:
        • Original hernia repair surgery with mesh on or after Jan. 1, 2006.
        • Suffered serious injuries including adhesions, hernia recurrence, intestinal blockage, mesh migration, organ perforation, and infection more than 30 days from the original date of surgery.
        • Hernia revision surgery or additional surgery because of complications.
        • Additional surgery is scheduled because of complications.
        • A surgeon told you that you need additional surgery because of complications.
        • You were told you needed surgery because of complications but cannot have it because of medical issues.

        If you had hernia mesh surgery and suffered major issues, you may be able to bring a hernia mesh case, especially if the mesh was manufactured by Ethicon, Atrium, or Bard Davol.

        To ensure that your lawsuit is filed on time, contact an attorney straight soon. A statute of limitations is a time limit that differs from state to state. You won’t be able to bring a lawsuit if you miss the deadline.

        There are a few basic prerequisites for eligibility, which vary depending on the patient or law firm handling cases.
