When to Talk to an Attorney About a Failed Knee Replacement

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.

Signs of Knee Replacement Failure

Victims of knee replacement failure often report similar clusters of symptoms when their devices begin to fail.

  • Pain, which can be chronic and lead to a marked decrease in life quality.
  • Blood clots, which can prove fatal if they travel to the heart, lungs, or brain.
  • Infection resulting from the implantation of the knee, which can lead to a life-threatening condition called sepsis.
  • Instability, which can lead to falls and other injuries.
  • Loss of mobility and range of motion, which can affect the victim’s ability to participate in leisure activities or perform essential job functions.
  • Nerve damage, which can be permanent.
  • Bone loss resulting from the implant rubbing against the surrounding structures of the knee. The loss is permanent and can lead to other complications that affect life quality.
  • Inflammation and swelling, which can also be signs of an infection.
  • Loosening of the joint, affecting the overall function of the knee.

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.

Joining a Class Action Suit for Knee Replacement Failure

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.
