Get Cash Now On Your Hernia Mesh Settlement
Hernia mesh lawsuit loans provide immediate financial relief to people who were seriously injured by pelvic mesh and are awaiting their hernia mesh lawsuit settlements.
Hernia Mesh Lawsuit
Without a cash advance for workers comp claims to help offset those lost wages, it can be a back-breaker that sets people back for years.
Why? Because the simple fact is that most household budgets can’t afford to take a 33% pay cut, literally overnight, and then continue to maintain the same standard of living as before.
Hernia Mesh Settlements
Consider this; it takes an average of 18 to 24 months to negotiate a workers comp settlement. Your lawyers said you have a strong case. They also said you need to be patient.
But when you’re living it day-to-day, eyeballs-deep in debt, teetering on an eviction, with creditors calling around the clock, 24 months can feel like F-O-R-E-V-E-R.
For a lot of people, it can be a crushing burden just to cover their basic living expenses each month. And now, with skyrocketing inflation, the price of everything going through the roof, $6+ a gallon for gas, and well, you get the picture.
Adding insult to injury, that little voice in the back of your mind keeps reminding you that missed and late payments are the #1 leading cause of bad credit.
And with bad credit, of course, it will be virtually impossible – for years after your settlement has been resolved – to get a mortgage or HELOC, car loans, credit cards, or anything else you’re going to need to move on with your life.
Finally…A Loan For People On Workers Compensation
When you’re injured, out of work, out of money, and behind on bills, landlords, banks, and other creditors are not your friends.
More to the point, they do not care about your problems. They want their money, period. On-time. Every time. Or else.
This is when workers compensation settlement funding from TriMark can be a real lifesaver.
Cash Advances For Workers Comp Claims
Phrases like “pre-settlement loans” and “workers comp lawsuit loans” get thrown around a lot, but they’re something of a misnomer.
Instead, it is an outcome-contingent, non-credit-based cash advance on workers comp settlement proceeds, and only plaintiffs can get them.
Better Than A Bank
Workers comp pre-settlement funding has a number of powerful characteristics. Not the least of which is the fact that it completely ignores the standard go/no-go creditworthiness test used by banks before they loan money to someone (commonly known as “The 5 C’s“).
All other benefits notwithstanding, this fact alone makes workers comp lawsuit funding a far superior option for injured plaintiffs when compared to traditional banks and lending institutions.
Workers Compensation Loans vs Bank Loans
If you’re recovering from a work-related injury, are behind on your bills, and need money like, yesterday, you’re in the right place.
For qualified applicants, workers comp lawsuit loans are exponentially easier to get and the approval process is far more user-friendly than turning to a bank for help.
Here are a few important differences:
Bank Loans Require:
☑️ Good to excellent credit
☑️ Verifiable income
☑️ Verifiable employment
☑️ Real estate collateral
☑️ Monthly payments
☑️ Repayment, no matter what
Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans:
✅ Bad credit is OK
✅ No income is OK
✅ Unemployed is OK
✅ Your case is the collateral
✅ No co-signor
✅ No monthly payments
✅ Only repay if you win
Is It Hard To Get Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans?
Not at all. Requests for legal funding on workers compensation claims is arguably the easiest and least document-intensive type of case TriMark can approve.
Finding out if your case should qualify for a workers comp loan is also fast, simple, and hassle-free.
In fact, just answer these 4 questions:
✔️ Are you a resident of, and injured in Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington, or Wyoming? (These are the ONLY states where workers comp loans are available.)
✔️ Do you have an accepted workers comp claim?
✔️ Are you represented by a contingent fee attorney?
✔️ Is this the first time you will receive funding on this case?
If you answered ‘yes’ to all four questions, you are pre-qualified for a workers comp lawsuit loan.

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Settlements FAQ
We get quite a few questions about hernia mesh pre settlement funding. We also get a ton of questions about the average settlement for hernia mesh lawsuits and if we can give “ballpark” hernia settlement amounts. Below, we have tried to provide as many, and as thorough, answers as we can.
A workers comp loan is a fast, risk-free, easy-to-qualify-for, non-recourse cash advance on workers comp settlement proceeds that a claimant expects to receive at the conclusion of settlement negotiations or litigation.
They are not credit-based and they are only available to injured workers with accepted workers comp claims in qualifying states who are currently represented by a contingent-fee attorney.
Approval is based on the strength and merits of the claim rather than the creditworthiness of the borrower. Repayment is only required if the underlying case is resolved successfully. If it isn’t, the borrower has no obligation to repay the advance.
Pre-settlement funding rates and terms may vary but our workers comp loan rates are typically below 3% monthly.
It’s fast, easy, and FREE to apply.
It only takes a minute to complete a brief application and then we’ll take it from there.
If you reside and were injured in AK, CT, FL, GA, LA, MO, MT, OH, OK, RI, TN, WA, or WY and you have an accepted workers comp claim and a contingent fee attorney is negotiating your settlement, you can apply online or call (877) 932-2628 and we’ll take your application right over the phone.
We’ll contact your attorney to confirm some details about your case and after you’re approved, funds can be sent by ACH, wire transfer, FedEx Overnight, or Western Union/MoneyGram.
Settlement loans for workers comp claims can range from $500 to $50,000+.
The amount you are approved for will depend on how much you need, how developed your case is, the extent and severity of your injuries, and other factors.
It depends what state you’re in.
Legal funding for workers compensation claims is only available to plaintiffs who reside in, and were injured in, the following 13 states: Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington, or Wyoming.
With only one exception, if your state is not in this list, you are not eligible for a workers comp settlement loan.
If you have a third-party liability lawsuit in addition to your workers comp claim, we can consider that case for lawsuit funding.
A third-party liability lawsuit is a civil lawsuit that is filed separately from your workers comp claim but the injury occurred during the same accident.
❇️ Example: You were using a poorly-maintained piece of hydraulic equipment at work. The equipment failed due to the lack of manufacturer-recommended maintenance and you got seriously injured as a result. You file a workers comp claim because you were injured at work. You also file a premises liability lawsuit against your employer for failure to properly maintain the equipment, which is the negligence that caused the unsafe work environment to begin with.
Other examples include auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction site accidents, tractor trailer accident case funding, product liability lawsuits, or premises liability lawsuits that your attorney is pursuing on your behalf, in addition to your workers comp claim.
Call us at (877) 932-2628 if you are unclear about this exception.
It means that repayment of the cash advance is only required if the workers comp claim results in a settlement.
❇️ If the case is resolved successfully, the advance is repaid out of your settlement proceeds.
❇️ If the case is lost or doesn’t settle, you have no obligation to repay the advance.
It also means that if the case is not resolved successfully, the lender has no legal recourse against the borrower to compel repayment of the advance.
As such, the legal funding company assumes 100% of the risk for repayment and makes the transaction 100% risk-free to the borrower.
Banks simply do not understand the latent monetary value of future workers comp settlements.
For personal loans, banks require excellent credit scores, unencumbered real estate as collateral, verifiable employment and income, and the ability to make regular monthly payments.
Most workers comp recipients are unable to satisfy those requirements.
Cash advances on workers comp settlements are never reported to credit bureaus.
Workers comp lawsuit loans are approved or denied based on the strengths and merits of your case; not how high or low your credit score.
TriMark will not do a prior funding buyout on any existing workers comp settlement advances from any other funders. To our knowledge, no other legal funding company will do that either.
As a general rule, no.
Exceptions have occasionally been made under certain circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
When you receive your first workers comp cash advance through a company other than TriMark Legal Funding, you will need to go back to that company. TriMark will not buy out or fund additional on that contract.
If you received your first settlement advance through TriMark, our underwriters will review a number of factors before they approve an additional cash advance on your workers comp settlement including, but not limited to:
❇️ How much did you receive with your first cash advance?
❇️ What is the estimated net settlement value of your case?
❇️ How long has it been since you got your last advance?
❇️ Have you reached maximum medical improvement (MMI)?
❇️ Has there been any significant new developments on the case since your last cash advance?
❇️ How long until your settlement agreement is finalized?
TriMark does not currently offer a workers comp settlement advance in California, and to our knowledge, no other legal funding companies offer them either.
Workers comp settlement advances in New York are not available. To our knowledge, no other lawsuit loan companies offer them either.
TriMark does not currently offer workers comp loans in PA, and to our knowledge, no other lawsuit funding companies offer them either.
TriMark does not currently offer workers comp loans in Illinois, and to our knowledge, no other legal funding companies offer them either.
It depends on the state.
Some (AR, DC, KY, MD, and WV) simply prohibit legal funding altogether. Among the remaining states, the most common reason is that the settlement check gets sent directly from the insurance company to the claimant rather than being sent to the attorney.
To be eligible for legal funding, however, the settlement check must be deposited into the attorney’s trust account first and then funds are disbursed to the claimant from there.
In all likelihood, yes, assuming you incurred significant injuries and there is clear liability against a sufficiently-insured defendant and you are represented by a contingent fee attorney.
TriMark provides pre-settlement funding (lawsuit loans) and post-settlement funding (settled case funding) on virtually all types of personal injury lawsuits, employment litigation, and workplace injury claims.
Without exception, you must be represented by a contingent fee attorney to qualify for any kind of legal funding, including workers comp advances.
TriMark Legal Funding only offers cash advances on state workers comp settlements.
Maritime workers are not covered under workers comp. They must seek injury compensation under the Jones Act.

TriMark Legal Funding provides low-cost cash advances nationwide on hernia mesh lawsuit settlements.
Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Cash Advances
TriMark Legal Funding is one of America’s foremost legal funding companies. We provide low-cost hernia mesh lawsuit loans to injured plaintiffs nationwide.
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.
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.
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.
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.
