Hernia Recall Lawsuits Expanded

The judge in charge of the Kugel Mesh hernia patch lawsuits has allowed for the expansion of claims against the manufacturer Davol, Inc. Essentially, the judge has ruled that legal claims may include hernia patches that did not contain an internal ring, but were made of a special bi-layered material similar to the Kugel Mesh patches. This means that if you have experienced abdominal pain, bowel adhesions, bowel obstructions or bowel perforations and have a hernia patch that was not recalled you may have a legal claim. The recall had only involved the Kugel Mesh hernia patch because its internal ring did not function properly.
