Faulty shoulder, hip or knee replacements cause more harm than they do good. Whether it’s a defective medical product or a surgery gone wrong, joint injuries can have a significant impact on your life. Every year, countless defective medical devices are recalled due to quality issues and design flaws. As the technology behind joint replacement becomes more sophisticated, there is always the risk that the product has unknown complications, or that the doctor performing the surgery lacks the experience to properly install the implant.
If you have had joint replacement surgery and suffered from injuries as a result, you need to contact a dependable shoulder, knee and hip replacement lawyer. The compassionate Mesa and Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience, PLC represent victims of injuries stemming from a faulty shoulder, hip or knee surgery.
If you already have had knee or hip surgery, have you experienced painful problems that might be related to a defective implant? Maybe you have seen a recent news story about surgeries going wrong, or perhaps you have been physically afflicted by medical device failure. In situations such as this, it is always worth your time to contact a defective medical product lawyer who can ease your fears and investigate your concerns. These days, many medical devices, including metal hip replacement devices, metal knee replacement devices, heart devices, and breast implants, come with serious side effects, such as:
- Revision surgeries
- Improper fit
- Corrosion of metal devices
- Device failure
- Elevated cobalt and chromium levels
- Fluid collection or cysts around the joint
- Severe pain
