1. The potential client must have undergone hernia repair surgery since 2010 that involved using one of the hernia mesh products named above – or another similar product that is currently among the types of hernia mesh lawsuits our firm still chooses to handle.
2. Painful or other difficult complications occurred due to the hernia implant used and the patient’s doctor recommended surgery to try and correct the problems.
3. Either the corrective surgery revealed defects in the implant already used – or the surgeon could not correct all the damage caused by the implant.
4. Our review of the prospective client’s medical records reveals the name of the hernia mesh implant manufacturer and indicates the product number and other classifications we need to find. For example, if the product was an Atrium C-Qur V–Patch, it might be classified as “Mesh, polymeric, surgical” and be stamped with a specific product code.
5. The potential client is still experiencing painful medical symptoms that are due to the implant that was originally used. And all attempts to heal the pain and symptoms have provided limited relief. Once a potential new client has met these qualifying criteria, our firm then completes our investigation and files a lawsuit on that person’s behalf.
