Did You Develop Problems After A Hernia Operation?
The problems you or a loved one is experiencing may be a result of the surgical mesh used in the operation. Numerous complications from since-recalled surgical mesh products involving patients in Wisconsin and Minnesota and nationwide have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). What can you do if the surgery you underwent to improve your life is threatening to take the enjoyment from it?
In western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, you can turn to the skilled injury lawyers at Nicolet Law Office, S.C., to take on the insurance companies and hold the manufacturers of defective hernia mesh accountable for the damages they have caused.

Do You Qualify For Compensation?
An experienced attorney can make a final judgment on whether you have a viable claim, but answering “yes” to the following increases your likelihood of being entitled to compensation for failed hernia mesh:
- Your first hernia surgery was in the mid-2000s or later.
- You have had to have a second surgery in the area the mesh was implanted.
- Your doctor is recommending that you undergo a revision surgery (second operation).
Hernia Mesh Symptoms
Defective hernia mesh products have been linked to injuries and complications such as:
- Chronic pain
- Hernia recurrence
If you have experienced any pain or issues in the area of your operation that you weren’t experiencing prior to going under the knife, it is in your best interest to start demanding answers. “Give it some time” is not adequate when you are living daily with the consequences of defective hernia mesh.
At Nicolet Law Office, S.C., we have the experience, resources and skills to get the answers you need and the financial compensation you deserve. This includes money to compensate you for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and future costs associated with your hernia operation.
When Was Your Original Surgery?
The defective hernia mesh that is the subject of lawsuits in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and around the country was used in surgeries beginning in the mid-2000s. If you are experiencing symptoms or have had to have additional procedures after a surgery in that time period, defective hernia mesh may be the culprit. It’s worth speaking to an attorney to learn if you have a viable claim for damages.
Have You Undergone A Revision Surgery?
In addition to the symptoms we’ve covered, defective hernia mesh often results in the need for additional surgeries to repair the underlying hernia. Undergoing additional surgery means more pain, more time off from work, more medical costs and more stress. You deserve to be compensated for these damages and made whole for what you have been through as a result of defective hernia mesh.
