Our knees are one of our most active joints, so they experience a lot of wear and tear. Modern medicine allows us to stay active, even when our knees fail, with a replacement. However, some models of knee replacements can cause serious side effects and ultimately lead to failure of the joint. If you or a loved one experienced pain or incurred additional damages resulting from a failed DePuy Attune knee replacement, you may be able to collect compensation for your losses. Contact the injury lawyers at Wendt Law Firm, P.C. today to discuss your legal options.
A failed knee replacement can lead to missed work or even require you to find a new vocation. It can also lead to chronic pain and other side effects. If you experienced a DePuy Attune knee replacement failure, it might be grounds to join a mass tort claim resulting from a defect in the knee itself. Any complications following a knee replacement surgery merit a consultation with an Kansas City DePuy attune knee replacement lawsuit attorney.
Victims of knee replacement failure often report similar clusters of symptoms when their devices begin to fail.
If you experience any negative symptoms following a knee replacement, even years after its implantation, it could be a sign that the device is failing. Certain manufacturer defects can lead to a knee replacement failure and the party responsible that manufactured the device may be liable.
A DePuy Attune knee replacement failure leads to both tangible and intangible harm. A person must not only pay for a medical procedure that did not work as intended, but must also incur additional costs to fix the problems associated with the knee failure. Aside from the material losses associated with knee failure, patients also suffer a marked loss in life quality resulting from chronic pain.
If your knee replacement caused issues, you may be able to join a mass tort action and seek damages for the material and immaterial losses that resulted from the defective medical device. Plaintiffs may be able to seek compensation for medical costs, missed work, pain, suffering, and other damages associated with the defective knee.
