At Auger & Auger, we aren’t afraid to fight large companies on behalf of our clients — and that includes manufacturers of defective medical devices. If you have used one as instructed and have suffered a health complication, our Columbia defective medical device attorney wants you to know that you have rights — and we are here to protect them.
You should not be put in a position of having to deal with severe side effects after seeking relief from an existing condition. Whether the device causing you additional medical problems was a Stryker or metal hip replacement, Bair Hugger warmer blanket, power morcellator, IVC blood clot filters, transvaginal or hernia mesh — you do not deserve to suffer life-altering injuries or decades of health issues.
Our Columbia medical device attorney division is actively fighting for patients who have suffered complications related to hernia mesh and IVC blood clot filters. Throughout the Carolinas, we are representing clients who have been injured by a hernia mesh implant. This is a device intended to support healing tissues but has been known to decompose, causing pieces to travel through the body resulting in serious physical problems.
Auger & Auger is also currently accepting clients who have experienced complications due to Stryker hip replacements. When one of these replacements fail, the patient is left with the option to receive a metal hip replacement during repair surgery; which may lead to immobility. In some instances, patients have had to endure multiple repair surgeries because of these defective medical devices.
Hernias may be repaired with or without surgical mesh. In either case, adverse effects may include infection, adhesion, blockage of the intestines, perforation of neighboring organs, and bleeding. When a hernia is repaired with mesh, the most common health complaints include bowel obstruction, hernia recurrence, infection, and pain.
More severe complications have been reported amongst patients whose hernias were repaired with now-recalled mesh products. These include obstruction, infection, perforation, pain, adhesion, and recurrence. Other potential problems related to any surgical hernia mesh are mesh shrinkage and mesh migration.
After a medical procedure, you expect to return to a normal life. Unfortunately, you can experience serious and debilitating complications, emotional turmoil and financial difficulties when a medical device fails. At Auger & Auger, we are here to represent you with unrivaled determination and dedication.
If you have been injured by a defective medical device, please reach out to our Columbia defective medical device attorney division. We will be your legal advocate, fighting for the just compensation to which you are entitled. With Auger & Auger you won’t pay unless we win your case, thanks to our zero-fee guarantee.
