Many hernia mesh products are manufactured and many have caused injury, and to know whether your hernia mesh products is a known culprit it’s important to ascertain details regarding the product in question, its manufacturer and its implementation by the surgeon. For instance, did the surgery involve a large incision or a small incision. You don’t need to figure all of this out, but you need to collect information so your Hawai‘i lawyer can figure it out for you.

We will help you complete the following initial steps to find out if you have a winnable claim:

  1. Contact the surgeon who performed the operation (NOTE: the claim is generally against the manufacturer of the mesh, not the surgeon who implanted it)
  2. Obtain medical records from the hospital (you will need authorization pursuant to HIPPA)
  3. Crosscheck device name with list of applicable manufacturers and products (see list below)

The products listed below have known adverse events and are the subject of damages lawsuits by injured patients.
