Knee Replacement Complications May Be Caused By Recalled or Defective Implants
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing knee replacement lawsuits for individuals who have experienced complications associated with several different artificial joint systems used in recent years.
Since most surgeons never tell patients what specific type of implant was used during a total knee replacement, our lawyers can help determine if a recalled or defective design may have been used. There is no need to find out what type of knee replacement you received before request a free case evaluation.
Find Out If You or a Loved One Have a Knee Replacement Case
Medical device manufacturers must ensure that the products they market and sell are safe and effective for their intended purpose. In addition, adequate information and warnings about potential risks must be provided for consumers and surgeons.
Over the past five years, a number of new knee replacement system have been introduced by different manufacturers, each claiming that they feature “innovative” designs that improve on knee implants already on the market. However, as surgeons have switched to these new systems, a growing number of knee replacement complications are beginning to surface.
Unfortunately, for individuals who received these devices, these reports of problems may only be the tip of the ice berg, with additional failures likely to occur in the future, as the systems remain in place longer.
Due to unreasonably dangerous and defective designs used with several different knee replacement implants widely used since about 2013, financial compensation may be available for certain individuals who have experienced:
- Continuing Knee Pain After Surgery
- Knee Swelling, Stiffness or Intability
- Limited Range of Motion
- Popping or Sounds from the Knee Implant
- Dislocation or Loosening of Components
- Revision Surgery to Remove or Replace the Knee Implant
By request a free case evaluation, the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. can help determine whether you or a loved one may be experiencing problems with your knee replacement that could have been prevented.
