Many types of surgeries and medical procedures use mesh, a type of material made of artificial or biological materials. Patients who undergo hernia repair, uterine prolapse prevention surgery, or procedures to reduce stress urinary incontinence could end up with mesh inside their body. While mesh needs to be approved by the FDA in order to be used, there are some serious concerns about some types of mesh used over the past few decades.
What are injuries caused by mesh?
While all types of mesh are certainly not bad, there are multiple types that have caused injury to patients throughout the country. Injuries can include organ perforation, scar tissue, chronic inflammation, pain, and bleeding. Further, the mesh used in the surgical or medical procedure can fail. This means it is no longer performing the function it needed to.
What should I do if I have an injury from failed mesh?
If you have had a physician tell you that your mesh failed, or if you are currently experiencing pain or issues due to your mesh, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and lifestyle changes. The team at MacCloskey Kesler & Associates has extensive experience working with clients who have lived with mesh failure complications and conditions; while each case is unique, we are confident we can work on your behalf to secure you the compensation you deserve.
Why does a local attorney matter for cases like these?
Mesh failure cases tend to be tried throughout the country. However, when you call a nationwide law firm to advocate for you, there is a chance you will not receive the individualized attention you need or deserve. At MacCloskey Kesler & Associates, we pride ourselves on excellent communication with our clients. We want to keep you in the loop about your case and we want to see it through until the very end. Unfortunately, nationwide law services do not have that type of relationship-based philosophy.
If you have been living with injuries or complications caused by a failed mesh system, don’t delay in contacting our office. Time is of the essence, and we want to hear about your situation sooner rather than later. Let’s get started and get you the compensation you deserve.
