Hiatal Hernias

Hernias can occur anywhere in tissues surrounding internal organs. A hiatal hernia is one in which the stomach bulges upward into the chest through a weak spot in the diaphragm. The actual injury generally causes no pain, but people with this type of hernia can suffer from severe heartburn and acid reflux. Doctors usually try to treat the symptoms first and perform surgery as a last resort. In hernia repair surgeries, small tears can normally be fixed with sutures, but larger tears often require the use of a skin graft patch.

Unfortunately, the skin graft brand AlloDerm has recently been linked to dangerous, and sometimes fatal, side effects. If you or a loved one has had a hernia repair that involved AlloDerm and now suffer from infection, an abscess, or hernia recurrence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Talk to a dedicated AlloDerm lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187 to learn about your legal rights and options.

Who Gets Hiatal Hernias?

A hernia can happen to anyone, but the following types of people are more likely to suffer from this kind of injury, such as:

  • Overweight or obese people
  • Smokers
  • People over the age of 50
  • People who frequently lift heavy objects
  • Sufferers of chronic vomiting, coughing, or constipation

If you or someone you love suffers from complications after a surgery involving AlloDerm, you should immediately get the medical attention you need. After that, the next best step may be to contact a dedicated hernia patch lawsuit attorney who will likely fight for justice on your behalf.
