Knee Replacement Implant Lawsuits

If you or someone you know has experienced serious complications following knee surgery, you may be entitled to compensation due to a defective knee implant. Contact our knee replacement lawyers today for a free and confidential case evaluation.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients undergo total knee replacement surgery. Total knee replacement surgery is a complex procedure that requires special implants that are designed to last 15-20 years. Newer implants are designed to last even longer. The recovery process following knee replacement can be long and difficult. But surgery and rehabilitation are worth it for many patients, allowing them to return to an active lifestyle without chronic pain.

Unfortunately, some patients experience serious complications following knee replacement surgery. To make matters worse, knee implant manufacturers have recalled tens of thousands of defective devices, many of which were already implanted in patients. Some of these defects increase the risk of serious complications and can lead to additional surgeries, pain and suffering, or permanent disability. Even if a device has not been recalled, certain knee implants and surgical devices have been associated with higher rates of complications, including serious joint infections following surgery.

Patients that experience complications due to a defective implant may be entitled to compensation from the knee device manufacturer for their lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Symptoms of Early Failure Due To a Defective Knee Implant

One sign that could indicate an implant is defective is the need for additional corrective surgery, also known as a revision, within 10 years of the initial replacement surgery.

Serious complications that may indicate implant failure and the need for revision surgery include:

  • Loosening or fracture of the implanted knee device
  • Chronic swelling and pain even months after the initial surgery
  • Instability or stiffness resulting in difficulty walking
  • Post fracture, breakage, or premature wear of the polyethylene components
  • Weakening of the bones around the implant, also known as osteolysis
  • Deep joint or periprosthetic injection requiring follow up surgery

How Do I Find Out If My Knee Implant Is Defective?

Every case is unique and our medical device attorneys and staff are experienced in reviewing your medical history and obtaining additional documentation to assess your potential legal claim. In some instances, knee implant manufacturers have voluntarily issue a recall notice to patients and doctors about a device that they discover is defective or dangerous. Other times, defective knee replacement devices are uncovered through data submitted to the FDA’s adverse event database or national joint replacement registries that monitor the outcome and revision rates for specific devices. Last, medical research or scientific publications may identify a particular injury or complication that is associated with a specific device or manufacturer.

How Does The Free Case Evaluation Work?

Because our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, we are able to perform this review at no cost to you. In fact, our contingency fee structure ensures that we only earn a fee if you receive compensation for your legal claim. In some cases, it may not even be necessary to file a lawsuit in order to receive compensation. The first step is to contact us about your case. After that, our attorneys and staff will be able to answer any additional questions about your specific situation and legal options.
