Work-related Hernias

Hernias are more common than many people may realize. In fact, in 1994 alone, there were over 30,000 work-related hernias in men. But both men and women are susceptible to hernias, and these painful medical conditions can have a serious impact on a person’s ability to work and carry on with everyday tasks.

If your hernia surgery only resulted in further pain or discomfort because of the failure of AlloDerm, you deserve a chance to seek justice. The failure of medical products like AlloDerm can lead to the need for further surgical treatment. If you have suffered because of hernia patch failure, please contact the AlloDerm failure lawyers at Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 for a free consultation.

Hernias and Work

Until 1994, no major study had been done linking hernia to occupational injuries. However, a 1994 study found that people in manual labor and repair positions are most likely to develop hernias while working. These fields often require a person to do significant heavy lifting or bending and stretching in dangerous ways. Hernias can develop this way, and hernia repairs can also reopen in these situations. If AlloDerm was used in a hernia repair and subsequently fails, a person may notice the following symptoms:

  • Sharp pain in the affected area
  • Swelling and redness
  • Development of an abscess
