Thre are some mass tort cases out there for certain kinds of mesh. It is unlikely that such a case could be handled individually. You need to do a google search for lawsuits involving the specific brand of mesh that was used in your surgery and make some phone calls.

There are numerous class action lawsuits of the Kugel hernia mesh manufactured by Davol. You need a copy of your operative report to see that product your doctor used. If it was one of the FDA recalled Kugel mesh products then Google “kugel mesh class action”.

Good luck.

You should consult an attorney to determine if you have a viable claim against the mesh manufacturer. It will depend on the the exact type of product and it will need to be identified and preserved. You should not delay consulting with counsel.

Good luck.
