Hernia Mesh Device Class Actions

We are working with co-counsel to pursue class action litigation and settlements on behalf of individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of hernia mesh devices manufactured by Atrium, Bard, Covidien, Johnson & Johnson and their affiliates, on behalf of Canadians who suffered serious injuries and complications arising from the use of their products.

The class actions allege that the manufacturers failed to adequately warn patients and healthcare professionals that the use of certain hernia mesh products increase the risk of serious injuries and complications.

Eligible mesh devices include:

  • Physiomesh – Ethicon
  • PerFix Plug – Bard Davol
  • 3DMax Mesh – Bard Davol
  • Sepramesh IP – Bard Davol
  • Ventralight ST – Bard Davol
  • Ventralex ST – Bard Davol
  • Ventrio ST- Bard Davol
  • Composix – Bard Davol
  • Ventrio Hernia Patch – Bard Davol
  • C-QUR Mesh – Atrium Medical
  • Parietex Mesh – Medtronic
  • ProGrip Self-Gripping Mesh – Medtronic

If you were implanted with a mesh device in Canada or want more information about these proceedings, please contact us.
