Legal funding eliminates worry, stress & anxiety.

If you sustained injuries because of defective hernia mesh and filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, you’re here because you’re experiencing a financial shortfall due to the long wait. With hernia mesh lawsuit loans, TriMark can put cash in your hands when you need it most. 

When hernia mesh products fail, they can cause thousands of serious or even life-threatening injuries. A faulty design can result in unnecessary surgeries or complications. The most common conditions are pain, infection, hernia recurrence, intestinal obstructions, or adhesion. 

Aside from the pain and suffering, victims have to shell out money to pay for the operation, surgeon’s fees, post-operative medication, and related costs. Then you wait to get compensated for such losses. 

Each day your settlement or trial gets delayed, the more difficult it becomes for you and your family. If you lost your job or working reduced hours, your household income may have been cut down significantly. But the rent or mortgage, car loan, utility bills, and co-pays are still due within the month while you continue to incur living expenses.

Amid all this, you can turn to TriMark for help. We offer pre settlement funding to plaintiffs with pending hernia mesh lawsuits. And we can provide you with the cash you need to avoid foreclosure or creating more debt.

    How to Qualify for Hernia Mesh Pre Settlement Funding

    Mesh pre settlement funding is one of two financing types offered by TriMark. You are eligible to apply for hernia mesh lawsuit loans if you have a pending lawsuit. Here are the requirements to satisfy:

    • You must be represented by a contingent-fee attorney.
    • You must have sustained severe injuries or complications from at least one hernia mesh surgery.
    • Your anticipated value should net at least $150,000 (gross award less attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc.).
    • Your settlement check must be deposited to, and be distributed out of, your attorney’s trust account.

    How to Qualify for Hernia Mesh Post-Settlement Funding

    The list of requirements is usually shorter for settled cases. Your hernia mesh suit is eligible for post-settlement funding as long as your net minimum value is $60,000 and relevant documentation submitted for faster processing.

    What Is a Hernia Mesh?

    A hernia occurs when an internal organ or tissue protrudes through a weakened area in the muscle or fascia. The most common hernias happen on the abdominal wall (ventral hernias). Typically, this condition requires a surgical repair to heal. The procedure involves placing a prosthetic material known as the hernia mesh to support the spot that needs to improve. 

    Some hernias are too small to undergo repair surgery. Instead, they are treated with laparoscopic surgery. But when pain or discomfort is noticeable, your situation may warrant medical intervention. These symptoms might be a sign to see your doctor immediately:

    • Persistent pain or discomfort from the bulge, especially if it interferes with daily activities or worsens over time;
    • Hernias that enlarge fast;
    • Hernias in the groin that are growing or worsening; 
    • Sharp pain in the abdomen that includes vomiting; and
    • Hernias that disrupt nerves, causing numbness and irritation. 

    In 2014, the Association of VA Surgeons conducted a study and found that 350,000 surgery repairs are done each year, and that’s just for ventral hernias. This option is generally safe and effective. However, it has potential complications, as any surgery would have. In particular, mesh repair has been controversial because of the side effects of the mesh material polypropylene.

    Hernia Mesh Types

    Hernia mesh can be classified into the following:

    Absorbable Hernia Mesh

    This type, which is made from animal or synthetic tissue, can only reinforce the repaired hernia for the short-term. It will eventually degrade, allowing the new tissue growth to support the repair.

    Non-Absorbable Hernia Mesh

    A non-absorbable mesh can stay in the body indefinitely. It is considered permanent, providing lasting reinforcement to the repair site.

    Synthetic Hernia Mesh

    Polypropylene, a synthetic plastic, is one of the most common materials used to make synthetic hernia mesh. Synthetic versions can be absorbable, non-absorbable, or both. They also come in woven or non-woven sheets.

    Coated or Composite Hernia Mesh

    Coatings may be based on fatty acids, cellulose, or collagen. Mesh makers often market this component as an adhesion-preventing feature. However, the opposite usually happens. The coating comes in contact with the intestines, causing complications.

    Animal Derived Hernia Mesh

    Hernia mesh materials include animal tissue, usually from the disinfected intestine or skin of a pig or cow. The resulting mesh is absorbable. 

    Allegations Against Manufacturers

    Plaintiffs of hernia mesh lawsuits often claim that the device has design flaws. It could be that the manufacturer was unaware of the risks or knew but chose to conceal specific details. The use of polypropylene is contentious, for example, because it can shrink, break, or erode. In turn, the patient may experience organ damage or other internal injuries.

    While the design of a mesh may be flawless, poor construction may prevent it from functioning correctly. For example, a mesh material is rendered unsanitary and, thus, unfit for use. It may no longer effectively work as intended, even causing severe side effects. In this case, you can pursue a manufacturing defect claim. 

    False information and failure to warn are also grounds for a products liability lawsuit. If the company marketed their device without telling patients and doctors of potential dangers, it’s relatively easy to prove through the lack of warning and related information on the label.

    Lastly, you may file a medical malpractice claim if the physician who attended to your hernia made any of the following mistakes: improper implantation of the mesh, handling the wrong mesh type, size, etc., and unnecessary application of mesh repair surgery. 

    You’ll have to prove that any of these acts were negligent and directly caused your injuries.

    Hernia Mesh Lawsuits

    Individual and multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases against manufacturers are pending in various courts across the country. 

    As of July 2020, there were 8,739 hernia mesh lawsuits in three separate MDLs for the following firms:


    About 2,241 suits over Atrium C-QUR mesh malfunction were consolidated in New Hampshire District Court, overseen by Judge Landya B. McCafferty. 

    The C-QUR hernia mesh product had a fish-oil-derived coating that was supposed to prevent complications. However, some users complained that it did the opposite. It was causing infection rates, pain, and other injuries instead. In 2012 inspections of Atrium plants, the FDA also found manufacturing violations.

    Atrium recalled 145,000 C-QUR units in 2013 due to packaging problems.

    Bard Davol

    In August 2018, 3,591 lawsuits were combined in an MDL over Bard Davol’s polypropylene hernia mesh products. The presiding judges are Edmund A. Sargus, Jr., and Kimberly A. Jolson.

    Plaintiffs were suing the manufacturer on two grounds: defective design and defective warning/failure to warn.


    Ethicon’s Physiomesh Flexible Composite hernia mesh was the subject of 2,907 cases pending in the Georgia Northern District Court. A federal judge oversees the MDL.

    Ethicon is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

    Meanwhile, suits against Ethicon were consolidated in multicounty litigation in New Jersey in August 2018. Discovery deadlines were extended to July 2021.

    Individual lawsuits not included in an MDL also exist against other manufacturers. People are suing Covidien, which was bought by Medtronic in 2015, for its defective hernia mesh products. W.L. Gore & Associates also face claims over its defective Gore-Tex DualMesh.

    Pending Trials

    Before the pandemic happened, hernia mesh MDL bellwether trials had been scheduled. Some of them were moved.

    For example, the Ethicon Physiomesh’s first trial is now set in November 2020, the second in February 2021, and the third in May 2021.

    The Bard federal trial was slated for September 29, 2020. But the date is still subject to change because of the Covid-19 crisis.

    Atrium’s first bellwether trial in Spring 2020 was postponed.

    The first bellwether trial for the New Jersey state court cases will be on November 2, 2020.

    Settlement Negotiations

    Settlements are an option for plaintiffs to take. These are often presented collectively in MDL cases. For example, Bard offered a global settlement of $184 million to people who filed lawsuits over its Kugel Composix hernia mesh. Bard targeted 2,000 cases, putting the take-home amount for each individual at $60,000 on average.

    Other manufacturers settled cases as well, although in private. Details about the settlements are not disclosed to the public. Thus, it may not be easy to nail the range of settlement amounts for hernia mesh.

    Usually, the mesh maker benefits more from a settlement. Trials are much more expensive for them to pursue. For plaintiffs, knowing the pros and cons of settling can help you understand your options better.

    Similarities to Transvaginal Mesh

    Surgical or hernia mesh is also used in reconstructive work, such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence. Transvaginal mesh shares the same function. That’s because the latter was derived from the surgical mesh applied to said conditions in the 1970s.

    Some gynecologists retrofitted surgical mesh into vaginal mesh to support prolapsing pelvic organs. They thought that POP was the female version of hernia. Boston Scientific created the first surgical mesh for this purpose, called ProteGen. The FDA approved it in 1996.

    How Long Does It Take for a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit to Settle?

    Various factors can affect the timeline of your hernia mesh lawsuit. One of the matters that set it apart from typical personal injury cases is the medical investigation needed to bring an action against a manufacturer to court. Your medical file will be reviewed. Your hospital or surgeon’s track record will be considered.

    Aside from a reliable expert attorney, you will probably require the help of a medical expert to testify on your behalf in trials. 

    Those things alone can already take years to resolve.

    Meanwhile, if your case is a part of a class-action lawsuit or an MDL can, you may be looking at one to three years. Bellwether trials start with a few cases to determine how much compensation is fair and reasonable to the plaintiffs. Defendants may wait for the trial results to determine the figure they’ll bring to the negotiation table.

    The jury award for winning plaintiffs can set a precedent to the remaining cases and future settlement offers. But if the defendants win, the settlement offer may significantly drop.

    Aside from the usual legal hoops, the Covid-19 crisis also affected the schedule of several trials. Expect prolonged litigation due to the pandemic.

    Hernia surgery is one of the most common surgeries in the United States. Most surgeons perform hernia repairs with surgical mesh. The net-like implant helps fix weak spots in muscle or connective tissue and prevents organs or fat from bulging through the weak spot. Most people have no problems after hernia repairs with mesh, and they can return to their regular activities. But sometimes hernia mesh fails and causes serious, painful problems that leave some people with debilitating health complications. Surgeons have to remove and replace defective mesh. Thousands of people across the country have filed hernia mesh lawsuits seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and lost quality of life…. Read more

Bard), refusing to reinstate a hernia mesh product liability suit on grounds that expert witnesses couldn’t prove the design of the product was defective or that significant negligence occurred. In the case, plaintiff Kemuel Goodson claims that implantation of Bard’s 3DMax polypropylene mesh during a laparoscopic bilateral inguinal hernia repair in 2006 caused a number of different complications, including remaining pain and the removal of a testicle, and required a number of future procedures.

    Patients undergoing incisional hernia repair with hernia mesh may have a lower risk for hernia recurrence, but complications can occur up to five years after surgery, a new study says.

    During the past decade, juries have returned numerous verdicts against transvaginal mesh manufacturers. Plaintiffs have received millions of dollars in compensation for medical bills, injuries and emotional damage after fighting their cases in court. Transvaginal mesh makers have settled thousands of legal claims for roughly $8 billion. The first transvaginal mesh lawsuits went to trial in 2012 and 2013. Since then, multiple transvaginal mesh producers have lost multimillion-dollar lawsuits. Many companies have agreed to large legal settlements to avoid facing plaintiffs in courtrooms, but others have delayed proceedings and settlements. Juries have sided with numerous plaintiffs who accused companies of designing defective products, fraudulently promoting the safety of the devices and failing to warn of potential complications. Despite multiple settlements, thousands of lawsuits are still pending in federal and state courts. It’s unclear whether companies will try to resolve remaining claims or fight them. “(Settlements are) hard to predict,” lawyer… Read more
