Bard Hernia Mesh Litigation
$4.8 Million Hernia Mesh Verdict
We are accepting Bard hernia mesh removal or revision cases.
$4.8 million was awarded to a plaintiff by a jury in Rhode Island state court in Trevino v. C.R. Bard. The jury found the mesh was defectively designed and the manufacturer failed to warn about the risks of complications of the mesh. Paul Trevino had multiple surgeries after his Ventralex mesh was implanted in a Hawaiian hospital, totaling over 40 days of hospitalization. The hernia mesh trials have been rescheduled multiple times because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The jury verdicts have ranged from $4.8 million to $0 as follows:
- 8/21 $0 C.R. Bard and Davol Inc. (Ohio)
- 4/22 $255,000 Milanesi v. Bard and Becton Dickinson (Ohio)
- 8/22 $4.8 million Trevino v. C.R. Bard (Rhode Island)

Hernia Mesh Revision
Qualifying hernia mesh lawsuit criteria:
The original hernia repair surgery with mesh implanted after 2011 AND:
- Developed adhesions, scar tissue, hernia recurrence, intestinal blockage, mesh migration, organ perforation and infection more than 30 days from the original hernia mesh implant surgery
- Underwent hernia mesh revision or mesh removal surgery due to mesh complications
The plaintiffs argue the hernia mesh manufacturers knew or should have known about the risks of injuries, yet never warned patients and the medical professionals of the dangers. Despite the alarming rates of hernia mesh removal and revision surgeries, infections, adhesions, intestinal blockages, perforations, some of the mesh manufacturers refused to notify patients and doctors and warn of serious complications. The mesh products have not been recalled and are still on the market being implanted in patients.
