Medical Malpractice/Gore tex mesh


The mesh that was used for an incision hernia repair has caused some severe health problems for me, which included three hospital stays and two surgeries in 2012. I am still recovering from an incision where a piece of the mesh caused infection in the incision with daily dressing changes.  I lost my job because of it. Do I have a legal case?

Elizabeth: You may very well have a valuable claim against the manufacturer of the mesh.  There are class action lawsuits going on right now that you may qualify to join.  Here is what you must do:  Contact the hospital where the mesh surgery was done.  Obtain a copy of the Operative Report/Surgical Report.  With those records determine the full identification of the mesh implant.........manufacturer, product name, Lot number, serial number and date of implant.  Provide that information to me and I will be able to tell you if you have a case or not.  No cost or obligation to you.  Tell me also where you live.  Town and State.
