It is impossible to determine how much a hernia mesh lawsuit is worth without first looking into the facts of your case, documenting your related losses and expenses, and considering the outcome of similar cases. No matter if your case settles out of court, if we join a mass tort, or if we take your case to trial and get an award, we cannot determine how much you might receive based on past results alone.

Recoverable Damages in a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit
How much your hernia mesh lawsuit is worth depends heavily on how much your complications cost you. This includes all your compensatory damages, meaning the expenses and losses you incurred because of the mesh, revision or removal surgery, and other related symptoms and treatment. Your compensatory damages could include:
The Cost of Medical Treatment
Your damages should include expenses related to any medical care you required to treat complications, including revision surgery or removal of the mesh.
Future Medical Care Costs
We will work with medical experts to understand your prognosis and the need for any future medical treatment or care related to your hernia mesh complications. Your damages may also cover this treatment.
Lost Income and Diminished Earning Capacity
If you missed work, are likely to miss work, or can no longer work your previous job because of your hernia mesh complications and related treatment, you may be able to recover damages to cover these losses.
You may be able to recover damages for any well-documented, treatment-related out-of-pocket costs.
Pain and Suffering Damages
Pain and suffering are compensatory damages, but they are “non-economic.” This means they are not as simple to calculate. However, we can put a value on your physical pain and suffering and mental anguish that is fair, and fight to recover it.
While punitive damages are rare, claimants in surgical mesh lawsuits have been able to recover significant punitive damages. This type of compensation is not compensatory. Instead, it goes above and beyond what you lost to punish the mesh manufacturer for their negligence.
Tosi & Rose Can Handle Your Hernia Mesh Lawsuit
At Tosi & Rose, our hernia mesh lawsuit attorneys understand how difficult it can be to live with a defective or dangerous medical device. Surgical mesh can help to repair a hernia and prevent a recurrence, but it also has a higher rate of complications than a traditional repair. Some complications of hernia mesh include:
- Bowel obstruction
- Mesh migration
- Mesh contraction
If you experienced any of these, or if you required revision or removal surgery, our team wants to review your case at no cost to you. We can help you understand the strength of your case and pursue the compensation you deserve. We may be able to join a mass tort already in progress, file a suit on our own, negotiate a settlement, or help create a mass tort.
