So, what is my defective hernia mesh case worth?

It is a very simple question, but you have done quite a bit of research and consulted with supposed experts – and no one can give you a straight answer. The answer is that no one knows specifically what your case is worth right now, that is why there are ongoing nationwide litigations. But before you go back to your Google search, while no one can tell you specifically what your case is worth, we can tell you what attorneys consider when they estimate the potential value of hernia mesh cases.

Here is what you need to consider:

  1. What were the settlement values in similar litigations?
  2. What are the strengths and weaknesses of your individual case?
  3. What can you expect to walk away with?

Helpful hint: If someone does tell you that they know exactly what your hernia mesh case is worth – at best they have no idea what they are talking about; and at worst they are an infomercial trying to sell you something. The same holds true for anyone guaranteeing a favorable outcome. This is litigation and there is always a chance that plaintiffs in litigation lose, making their cases worth nothing.
