Pursuing Justice for Victims of Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs
The Kugel Mesh patches were first approved by the FDA in 1996 and were marketed as an effective repair for hernias. Soon after its release, it was discovered that the Kugel Mesh Hernia Patches resulted in an extraordinarily high rate of bowel infections and other gastrointestinal disorders.
Lawsuits have been filed alleging that these patches were defectively designed because the plastic ring used in the patch can break off inside of patients. This has been known to carry a higher risk of serious bowel infections. Consumers have also suffered other severe side effects from the drug, including:
- Bowel perforations
If you or a loved one has endured complications from a Kugel Mesh hernia patch, we will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
