Around seven million Americans are living with joint replacements. Whether they’re hip, knee, or ankle replacements, lower-body joint replacements can give patients their mobility and independence back after injuries and bone degeneration. However, they can also put them at risk for serious complications.
Several joint replacement manufacturers have released products that are linked to dangerous complications, including:
- Bone loss
- Joint dislocation
- Hip pain
- Joint instability
- Implant loosening
- Swelling and inflammation
People who have defective joint replacements suffer from these symptoms, and their only option for getting relief is by having their joint replacements surgically removed and replaced. This means they must endure potentially dangerous surgeries, long recovery times, and big medical bills.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we believe this is unacceptable. Patients shouldn’t have to suffer because a product manufacturer chose profits over safety, but that’s exactly what’s happening to countless joint replacement patients nationwide.
If you or someone you love received a defective joint replacement that has failed or is failing and are suffering from serious complications, our defective medical product lawyers want to help. We have the experience and resources to get the money you deserve from the negligent company that manufactured your joint replacement.
