Lawsuits Involving Hip Recalls And Artificial Joints
Medical science has made significant advances with artificial joint replacements. When the devices are well-designed and properly implanted, patients can enjoy years of increased health. When a surgical error or medical product defect leads to more treatment or serious complications, however, the result can be devastating.

Litigating Knee Joint Replacement Cases
Artificial joint replacements can present a number of problems, including:
- Material-based issues
- Bleeding problems
- Sizing issues
- Professional malpractice
In many of these cases, patients are forced to undergo a second surgery, resulting in unnecessary pain and potential complications, including infection. Our attorneys are prepared to handle any joint replacement claims, including those involving DePuy hip recalls.
Looking Out For Your Interests
In many cases, when something goes wrong with a joint replacement procedure, the problem lies in the replacement part itself. When this happens, it becomes a product liability case, because the product you received to use as a replacement joint was faulty.
As your legal advocates, we will bring a product liability action under the Connecticut Product Liability Act to aggressively pursue compensation for:
- Your second surgery
- Rehabilitation following subsequent surgery
- New joint replacement
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity if range of motion deteriorates
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
