What kind of settlement can I expect from a hernia mesh repair with revision surgery
2 Answers from Attorneys
Only one who can answer this is your attorney or, if you do not currently have one, an attorney who has reviewed all of the facts.
THE HERNIA MESH VICTIM MUST LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING FACTORS TO DETERMINE WHETHER A PROPOSED HERNIA MESH SETTLEMENT IS A GOOD ONE:
Amount of medical bills, prescription expenses and other medical expenses incurred by the victim
Amount of lost wages, diminished working capacity and loss of past and future income
The amount and duration of pain and suffering
The number of revision surgeries
Past, present and future medical expenses and pain and suffering
How deep are the defendant’s pockets taking into account the number of claims pending
How strong is the claim that the product is defective and how likely will it be to prove causation of symptoms to the defective hernia mesh.
Was the alleged defective medical device recalled or withdrawn from the market?
The time value of having funds now versus payment later
The likelihood of getting a fair trial with the judge in charge of the mesh lawsuit litigation.
The outcome of prior trial, decisions and bellwether trials which have occurred.
