Knee Replacement Class Action

[profileleft]Knee Replacement Class Action[/profileleft]

Knee Replacement Complications

Knee replacements are now one of the most common surgical procedures that are done in the United States. Overall, the success rates tend to be quite high over the long term. However, several knee implant systems have experienced higher-than-normal failure rates. The knee replacement lawyers at Gomez Trial Attorneys are currently investigating several knee replacement systems that are either currently in or being evaluated for litigation.

The most common types of complications associated with knee replacement surgery are:

• Pain
• Loosening of components
• Swelling
• Dislocation
• Instability
• Infection
• Popping, crunching or clicking sounds

Knee Replacement Class Action

Over the last few years, the FDA and/or several manufacturers have issued recalls of knee systems or components. For example, in 2015, the FDA announced a Class II recall of the Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate. This component is one part of the popular Persona artificial knee system. Numerous complaints were made to the FDA about loosening of the tibial plate or gaps between the artificial knee and bone that caused extreme pain and instability.

More recently, our knee replacement lawyers are currently investigating the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Replacement System. There are numerous adverse event reports concerning the device that have been reported to the FDA. Specifically, hundreds of reports were made that concern loosening of the tibial plate. This tends to cause extreme pain, swelling, and other complications that may result in the need for a premature revision surgery.

Our Knee Replacement Lawyers Can Help You

Most people do not ever want to or think they’d ever be involved with a knee replacement class action. Our team of staff and experienced knee replacement lawyers can help you navigate this path and clearly explain the options available to you. More importantly, our lawyers are here to fight for your rights and are willing to stand up to large companies like DePuy (owned by Johnson & Johnson).

John H. Gomez, the Principal of the firm, was one of the lead trial lawyers instrumental in obtaining an $8.3 million jury verdict against DePuy arising out of a defective hip implant made by the company. The verdict was ultimately upheld on appeal in its entirety in 2016.

A consultation with one of our experienced knee replacement lawyers is completely free. It is important to call immediately if you have any questions for several reasons including:

• Every state has an applicable statute of limitations. This is the time frame within which you must file a lawsuit or forever waive your right.
• If you have not yet undergone a revision surgery, our office can help properly secure the explanted device and preserve it as evidence for your case.

If you have a qualifying case, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages and any out-of-pocket expenses you may have incurred. If you have any questions, our staff and knee replacement lawyers are happy to speak to you to discuss and advise you of your options. This consultation is completely FREE. We always represent our clients on a contingency fee basis which means you do not pay anything unless we are able to recover compensation for you.
