Oct 2013 had a hernia repair and had reaction to the mesh and had saddle PE, the MD had to operate again in 5 days to remove the mesh. The MD said that the mesh was not properly processed and called the co, he did not do any research on my capacity for blood clots or on the mesh. I have not been able to pursue my career of ins adjusting as a result. I have had to have a 2nd hernia repair the and the new MD researched the mesh, put in a vc filter for clots and I had no problems. Have had to desk jobs now. Want a Lawyer to go after Co, MD, and possible hospital.
Based on the law applicable in my jurisdiction your remedy would be against the Dr and not the hospital as the hospital is not liable for a Dr who commits malpractice unless the Dr is an employee or agent of the hospital. You might also have a remedy against the company which is usually handled as part of a class action lawsuit. There are multiple class action lawsuits currently maintained against different mesh manufacturers. There would also possibly be a medical malpractice action against the surgeon for which you should consult medical malpractice counsel to determine if there was a departure from the standard of care then prevailing. Good luck to you both medically and legally.

There are not many lawyers handling abdominal mesh cases. Most lawyers pursuing mesh lawsuits are handling TVM cases. I know a lawyer in CA who you can talk to about potential representation for an abdominal mesh case (it's common for medical device products liability cases to behandled on a national basis). If you'd like, I'd be happy to put you in touch with her.
