You may still have a claim against the manufacturer of the mesh.
The deadline for legal action is one year after you knew or should have known that you were injured by a defective product but no more than ten years after the product was first implanted in you. I urge you to contract an experienced Tennessee hernia mesh lawyer. Ideally, you would need to know the type of mesh used and have a copy of the product identification sheet, the operative note, and the discharge summary from each procedure. If you don't have that the lawyer will be able to get it for you with your written permission.
Be sure to act quickly.
Note: this claim is likely not a medical malpractice claim because it is not a claim against the doctor or hospital but rather a claim against the product manufacturer.See question
My mother got hurt in lowes and broke her ankle and the lawyer she hired never showed her what the settlement was, and she is trying to find out if he lied to her and keep most of the money!
It is unclear from your question whether a lawsuit was ever filed. If a lawsuit was filed, you can identify the Lowe's lawyer from the court file. If a lawsuit was not filed, it is possible and indeed probable that Lowe's did not have an attorney at all but just relied on a claims adjuster to negotiate the settlement.
Typically, the settlement check is written to both the client and the lawyer and thus you will have to see the check to endorse it. If not, write to your lawyer and ask him or her for a copy of the check. You will also receive a disbursement sheet when you receive your portion of the money. That sheet will show the gross settlement amount and show all disbursement - lawyer fees and expenses, medical bills and liens, and the net amount paid to you.
It is highly unlikely that the lawyer misrepresented the amount of the settlement. There are a few dishonest lawyers out there, but the vast, vast percentage of lawyers would never think of doing such a thing. That said, the best way to re-assure yourself (and your mother) is to get a copy of the check and the disbursement statement.See question
My daughter was in a car accident last year, in which the other driver was at fault. We settled her medical claim with the driver's car insurance company, not knowing that we were to have contacted my health insurance provider first before settli...
My guess is your daughter didn't pay the entire balance in full but instead paid the balance due after BCBS made its payment to the hospital. If so, and if the BCBS policy has a subrogation provision, it is your daughter's responsibility to re-pay BCBS not only for what it paid the hospital but also what it paid for any other health care provider who provided care to your daughter for any injuries received in the collision.
BCBS usually sends a letter several weeks or months after the wreck advising wreck victims of their obligations under the policy. But, legally, they do not have to do so because the law assumes that your daughter has read and understands the policy.
Sorry that you are in this position.See question
My 18yr old was injured in an auto accident in which she was a passenger in her friends truck. The accident was the friends fault. My daughter had to have surgery on her ankle and leg. She is just now walking 3 months later and continues therapy c...
Yes, your daughter can recover medical bills, loss of income, and damages for pain, suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. You are encouraged to seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, most of whom will work with you and only charge if they are successful in getting the case resolved. I strongly encourage you not to do this on your own - the insurance company will have an experienced claims adjuster handling this matter and you need experienced legal help as well.See question

State Farm should hire a lawyer to represent you even if the policy may not provide coverage for this incident. Confirm that they are going to respond to the lawsuit in a timely way and, if they do not confirm that they will do so, hire a lawyer to help persuade them. Act quickly - you only have 30 days to respond to the lawsuit.See question
I was in a car accident 2 days ago a driver hit me from behind, I went to the emergency room where tests were taken and I have a strain in my back, pain medicine was prescribed, the accident was the other drivers fault, they received the ticket.
Tennessee is not a "no fault" state and you are not legally entitled to payment for medical bills or loss of income simply because you have been in a car wreck. Instead, you have to be able to prove the fault of the other driver and prove how you were injured in the wreck. You should seek the advice of a lawyer to guide you through this process. Most experienced injury lawyers offer free consultations and will accept your case on a "no recovery, no fee" basis.See question
I'm in the process of filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, it resulted in my mother's death. However, my mom is still married to my father even though they been separated years. He knows no details of what happened. Is there any way to get him t...
Under Tennessee law, the only way you can file this case is to be appointed administrator of your mother's estate. If your father does not object, and no one else objects to your appointment, you will be appointed and can pursue the case. Depending on the length and other details of their separation, your father may still be entitled to a portion of any monetary recovery.See question
I borrowed a friends car. She is uninsured and so am I because I do not have a vehicle. There was an accident where I was at fault. Am I in trouble.
Yes. First, you can be held to be financially responsible for the harm caused. This can result in a civil judgment against you, and the person with the judgment can take a portion of your paycheck, seize assets, etc.
Second, the State might come after your driver's license for driving without insurance. Candidly, I don't know much about that area of the law but that too can have serious consequences for you and thus I suggest you consult with a lawyer in your area if you receive notice that either the other person in the wreck or the State of Tennessee is taking legal action against you.See question

You have one year from the date you discovered or reasonably should have discovered that you had been injured during the original surgery. To be safe, assume that the one-year period began on the date of the original sinus surgery.
The merits of your case can only be determined after a review of the applicable medical records and communication with an appropriate expert,See question
