I’m about to start a series of reporting on the upcoming mesh trials. We have waited so long for any court action since most courts have been closed in 2020. Even though we are not done with this pandemic, or it’s not done with us, the courts are opening up - we have hernia mesh trials in three different states.
It will be fascinating to see how they fare in comparison to the pelvic mesh trials where tens of millions were awarded AND the punitive damages! When jurors hear how mesh makers disregarded the early signs of trouble, they get furious! So stay tuned and if you have a hernia, please consider a first repair to be a non-mesh one.
