Attention: Health WarningThis is an important health alert for anyone who has received a hernia repair in the past 20 years.
Hernia repair is a very common surgery in the US. In fact, around 10 million hernia repairs have been performed in operating rooms across the country over the past decade. About 500,000 ventral (or abdominal) hernia repairs and 500,000 inguinal (or groin repairs), are conducted each year. Oftentimes these hernias are repaired using a product called surgical mesh, which prevents the organ from pushing through the weakened tissue that helps hold the organ in place. While hernia mesh is generally successful in preventing recurrent hernias, some complications have been attributed to multiple types of mesh devices, including (but not limited to) Physiomesh, C-QUR, and numerous Bard, Ethicon, Gore, and Covidien Products. As a result, there is the potential for a hernia mesh lawsuit.
The Ruth Law Team is currently investigating Bard, Atrium, Ethicon, Covidien and Gore hernia mesh products. The following symptoms are common in patients with failed mesh devices:
Once again, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to The Ruth Law Team on an above-average representation of my accident law suit. Their impeccable record for leaving you satisfied financially is equally satisfying to health and mental well-being. I would like to personally thank Venetta at the front desk who is the heart of the operation; my lawyer Jessica Shahady, and Carlos who have twice represented me. I also referred a friend who uses their services. Thank you Ruth Law Team. Much continued success.
The entire Ruth Law Team was great. They answered all my questions and got me the maximum settlement that was possible.

The Ruth Law Team was there for me from the day of my accident to the very end. The day after my accident they sent an investigator to my home to get the details of the accident. Which was amazing because I was in so much pain there is no way I could have gone to their office. They fought for me every step of the way and I am eternally grateful. They literally had to do so much work on my behalf. I can't thank them enough for turning a very traumatic event in my life into a supportive and nurturing experience. Nicole was my go to and she was phenomenal. She checked on me regularly and kept me up to date on the case. Thank you!

Ruth Law and Attorney Shahady were excellent. They were kind, accurate, and exceeded expectations. Carlos was a wonderful help also.
