To combat an abdominal hernia, surgeons can repair the bulging intestines by implanting a patch of flexible polypropylene mesh over any weak spot in the intestinal walls. The two most popular brands of hernia mesh are Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Physiomesh and Atrium Medical Corporation’s C-Qur. Both devices are currently being recalled due to numerous patient complications.

Bellwether trials are slated for early 2020 to determine if the synthetic Physiomesh and C-Qur hernia mesh products were allegedly rushed to market before adequate testing could take place, as many of these systems are proving faultyThe devices can shrink, harden, and even migrate, causing chronic pain, superfluous drainage, nausea, and bloating. Some patients have reported bowel perforations and nerve damage, and some have even required additional surgeries.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented, «Based on past experience with hernia mesh lawsuits, Legal-Bay expects to see a positive outcome for plaintiffs in these various litigations. But with numerous manufacturers and varying injuries, these new cases will take a long time to resolve.»

In 2010, C.R. Bard agreed to pay $184 million, with an average hernia mesh settlement value of $92K. Legal-Bay says it is uncertain if these new cases will ever settle or at what values. Nonetheless, Legal-Bay stands ready to help clients in need of a cash advance (sometimes referred to as a lawsuit loan or presettlement loan).
